The Moss Hornet is a Hardmode flying enemy similar to the pre-Hardmode Hornet, being encountered in the Underground Jungle as well.

Compared to the more random flying patterns of pre-Hardmode Hornets, Moss Hornets act more aggressively, hovering closer to the player's position and shooting their stingers in rapid bursts. The stingers have a 33.33*1/3 (33.33%) chance to inflict the Poisoned debuff to the player for 10 seconds. In Expert Mode, the chance is 33.33*1/3 (33.33%) for 20 seconds and 66.67*2/3 (66.67%) for 2–10 seconds. They cannot be destroyed with weapons and travel at about the same speed as the darts from a Dart Trap.

Moss Hornets have a 0.67*1/150 (0.67%) chance to drop Tattered Bee Wing if any Mechanical boss has been defeated in the world, which is solely used in the creation of Bee Wings.

Variants[edit | edit source]
