Removed: No Longer Available
Thorny Needler was removed from the game files, and is no longer obtainable.
Thorny Needler was a gun crafted at an Iron Anvil using Platinum Bars and Thorn Fruit. It functioned identically to the Needler but, as mentioned, was crafted rather than found.
Players automatically learned the crafting schematic after they first obtain Thorn Fruit.
It was removed when weapons were overhauled in updated cheerful giraffe.
