Armored Digger

From Calamity Mod Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Armored Digger is a worm-type mini boss that appears in the Cavern layer after Plantera has been defeated. It behaves similarly to The Destroyer, charging at the direction at the player continuously until turning around to ram again. The worm will also occasionally fire yellow falling scraps which will linger for a bit until disappearing. It drops Demonic Bone Ash, Dubious Plating, and Mysterious Circuitry.

When an Armored Digger spawns, the message "Armored Digger has awoken!" will be displayed. The Armored Digger will despawn when the player leaves the underground layer.

Notes

Tips

  • As with most worm-type enemies, weapons or ammo with high piercing are the most effective at killing Armored Diggers.

Trivia

  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Armored Digger: "These automated mechanical worms used to dig out the caverns so labs could be built. Thankfully, they are long past their once efficient state, and have not received maintenance in decades."
  • One of its previous sprites was intended for The Devourer of Gods, but was repurposed due to it being too small.
