Deerclops is a pre-Hardmode boss encountered in the Snow biome. Fighting Deerclops is not required for game progression, but defeating it rewards the player with coins and other useful items.

Spawn

Deerclops can be summoned manually by using a Deer Thing at any time in the Snow biome.

Deerclops can also spawn naturally at 12:00 AM during a Blizzard on the surface Snow biome after fulfilling these conditions:

  • At least one player in the world has at least 9 defense or at least 200 health.
  • There is a player at the surface Snow biome.
    • There must be no town NPCs within a 240×135-tile rectangle centered on that player.
  • There must be no other bosses or hostile events (except the Blood Moon) active.
  • If in Don't dig up or Get fixed boi worlds, Deerclops will only naturally spawn in Snow biomes on the Surface layer, where the Blizzard visual effect is not displayed.
    • Deerclops will not spawn at the Cavern layer where the Blizzard effect is displayed.

Deerclops can still spawn naturally even if Journey Mode's enemy spawn rate slider is set to 0×.

If Deerclops has previously been defeated in the world, there is only a 1/4 (25%) chance for it to spawn naturally.

Behavior

In Revengeance Mode

  • Deerclops will occasionally roar and spawn 9 shadow hands around the player that will slowly swoop into them before vanishing.
  • If Deerclops is not close enough to the player to perform its ice spike attack, it will spawn 20 ice debris on the ground which are all spaced out evenly. The ice debris will then launch into the air one by one, with each one gaining increased velocity one after the other before falling through the ground afterwards.
  • If the player stays above Deerclops for some time, it will roar and spawn shadow hands slightly further away from the player's current position.
  • Deerclops gains a shadow border which will become more opaque and it will take less damage the further away the player is from the boss, eventually becoming fully opaque and taking almost no damage.
