I’m honestly not sure exactly how the Ball and Chain Arrow is supposed to work. It only appears one time and it fails horribly. Worse then that, I can’t figure out how it is supposed to work. An arrow with a heavy, dangling metal ball at the end would destroy any attempt at accuracy.
It’s possible that the entire thing was a joke. After all, it did end up taking out Green Arrow’s girlfriend, his “ball and chain.” Add to that the villain, Auntie Gravity, and the whole adventure was probably a tongue-in-cheek joke.
