The Digger is a worm-type enemy that appears in the Underground and Cavern layers in Hardmode. It completely replaces the Pre-Hardmode Giant Worm. Giant Worms still spawn rarely, but share kill count and banner.

Tips[]

  • As with all worm-type Enemies, Diggers can be easily killed with Spears, as the Spear can travel through Blocks and can hit multiple of the Digger's segments, drastically increasing damage output.
  • Much like the World Feeder, if the Cursed Inferno debuff is inflicted to multiple segments, damage can quickly rack up.
  • Since the Digger shares the same kill count and Banner as the Giant Worm, Worm Banners obtained Pre-Hardmode can be useful for fighting Diggers.

Trivia[]

  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Digger: "Exposure to the effects of ancient magicks flowing throughout the cracks of the world causes unusual rapid growths in giant worms."
