The Frozen Zombie (on Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, and Mobile version Mobile) or Zombie Eskimo (on Old-gen console version Old-gen console, 3DS3DS version, Switch version Switch, and tModLoader version tModLoader) is a Zombie variant that only appears on the Surface Snow biome at night. It acts the same as normal Zombies, slowly walking towards the player to deal contact damage, while attempting to navigate around obstacles and only being able to open doors during a Blood Moon. It is differentiated from other Zombies in that it is dressed in a light blue snow suit, which it can drop as armor pieces in the form of the Snow Hood, Snow Coat, and Snow Pants (on Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, and Mobile version Mobile), or Eskimo Hood, Eskimo Coat, and Eskimo Pants (on Old-gen console version Old-gen console, 3DS3DS version, Switch version Switch, and tModLoader version tModLoader).

Like normal Zombies, it has an armed variation in Expert Mode, which can perform a "slashing" attack when close to the player to deal extra damage with increased range.

Trivia[]

  • Prior to 1.4, this enemy was (and on the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version, 3DS3DS version version, Switch version Switch version, and tModLoader version tModLoader version still is) called Zombie Eskimo instead of Frozen Zombie.
    • Eskimos are the indigenous peoples who have traditionally inhabited the northern circumpolar region. In Canada and Greenland, the term Eskimo is predominately seen as pejorative and has been widely replaced by the term Inuit, even though the Inuit are a distinctive group of aboriginal peoples in Canada.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Frozen Zombie: "Zombies found in snow biomes are often found bundled up in winter clothing. It doesn't help them any, they are still dead cold!"

History[]

  • Desktop 1.3.0.1: Name now displayed as "Zombie Eskimo" instead of just "Zombie".
