The Skeleton Commando was introduced in the 1.2 update to Terraria and spawn in the Dungeon if the area has Dungeon Brick Walls, similarly to Necromancers and Blue Armored Bones. Like all other Hard Mode dungeon creatures, Plantera needs to be defeated at least once on that world before they will spawn. The Skeleton Commando will rarely drop a Rocket Launcher. The Skeleton Commando could prove to be a threat when fought from afar, as their rockets deal 120 damage in a 2-3 block radius from the explosion. The best way to prevent them from shooting their rockets is to fight them closely with melee or hitting them constantly from afar. One of the best Spells to do this is the Golden Shower, because it can penetrate any amount of possible enemies in front of a Skeleton Commando.


  • Because of the Commando's dark color palette, it is advised that player always keeps an eye out for him. Killing the Commando in most cases should be a player's number one priority due to the fact that it can deal devastating damage in a short period of time.
