The Goblin Scout is an uncommon surface enemy found in the farthest edges of the player's world. It looks like an enemy from a Goblin Invasion event, but it spawns during ordinary gameplay. The Tattered Cloth it drops is a component for the Goblin Battle Standard, which summons a Goblin Army.

Goblin Scouts can only be found in the furthest east and furthest west sixths of the world. They will not spawn in the Corruption or the Crimson and will only spawn during the day.

It is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform AnalyzerDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions or its upgrades.

Notes[]

  • Goblin Scouts are able to open doors.
  • They are the only enemy able to hurt the Old Man.
