Ball and Chain Arrow

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.
