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.
It is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer or its upgrades.
- As they are uncommon, using a Battle Potion and Water Candle in combination is an effective way to get them to spawn.
- They have spawning conditions similar to King Slime.
- The Bestiary entry for the Goblin Scout: "The Goblin Army sends lone soldiers out from the beaches to seek out colonies to conquer. They give warning with a tattered sigil."
