The Corruptor is a Hardmode enemy that spawns within The Corruption. It is a larger version of the Eater of Souls, with an added projectile attack (Vile Spit) that inflicts the Weak debuff on players.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Vile Spit projectiles are similar to Burning Spheres, Chaos Balls, and Water Spheres in that they are destroyed with any weapon in a single hit. However, unlike the others, Vile Spit cannot pass through blocks, and it deals much more damage on contact.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Corruptors can be fairly powerful when just starting Hardmode, so they should not be underestimated.
  • When building/farming in or around the Hardmode Corruption, it can be helpful to use a summon weapon with knockback to hold them in place. The Spider Staff works well.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Corruptors leave behind an afterimage as they move, much like a set of Necro armor or The Twins boss.
  • The Vile Spit projectile was once able to spread Corruption, giving the Corruptor its name. However, this feature was removed in the 1.2 update.
  • Despite its name, the melee weapon Scourge of the Corruptor is not dropped by the Corruptor, nor does it deal any extra damage to the Corruptor.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Corruptor: "Like a cancer, the putrid creatures born from the Corruption mutate and grow into bigger, more deadly forms which discharge acids."
