  • $\begingroup$ That's a lot of prefixes - are any of those supposed to be a 'suffix', as that part of the word seems to be unclued at present? $\endgroup$

My prefix is in the game, but I just kind of dangle.

EA is Electronic Arts the video game company, but an earlobe just dangles (if free).

My prefix shouldn't be tipped, but you can give me a bangle.

ear - it’s not safe to put a Q-Tip in an ear, but can have a ring in your earlobe.

My prefix is noble, yet people stab me right through.

Earl - a rank of the nobility in the UK, and you can get an earlobe pierced.

My infix goes far, yet I will never leave you.

lob - throw a ball into a high arch, your earlobe hopefully stays attached!

What word am I?

You are an earlobe
