Beetle armor is a Hardmode, post-Golem armor set with defensive and melee boosts. It is considered an upgrade of the Turtle armor set, and, prior to patch 1.3 was one of the 3 endgame armors available for the PC version, the others being Shroomite armor and Spectre armor.

In total, Beetle armor will apply the following boosts: With Beetle Scale Mail :

  • +8% melee critical hit chance
  • +14% melee damage
  • +12% melee speed
  • +12% movement speed
  • Significantly higher chance that enemies will target the wearer

With Beetle Shell :

  • +5% melee critical hit chance
  • +11% melee damage
  • +6% melee speed
  • +6% movement speed
  • Significantly higher chance that enemies will target the wearer

Beetle armor has two chest piece options:

  • Beetle Scale Mail offers the Beetle Might buff. This increases melee damage and speed by 10% when successfully attacking enemies. The boost is raised to 20% and 30% with further successive attacks. When the player stops attacking successfully for a period, the buff resets.
  • The Beetle Shell offers the Beetle Endurance buff. When the player avoids taking damage, this buff reduces damage taken on the next hit by 15%, with further boosts to 30% and 45% if the player continues to avoid damage for longer durations. When the player takes damage thereafter, each hit lowers the boost applied to the next hit by one step. This buff features a visual effect showing one to three "beetles" flying around the player, signifying the 15%, 30%, or 45% damage reduction boost currently in effect.

Crafting the full set with one chest piece requires 18 Beetle Husks, 54 Chlorophyte Bars (or 324 pieces of Chlorophyte Ore), and 3 Turtle Shells. Crafting all four pieces from scratch requires 26 Beetle Husks, 78 Chlorophyte Bars (or 468 pieces of Chlorophyte Ore), and 4 Turtle Shells.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Beetle Armor is not entirely an upgrade from Turtle armor. The Turtle armor strikes a nice balance between offense and defense, whereas the Beetle Armor will sacrifice one for the other and lacks the Turtle armor's damage reflection set bonus.
  • It is possible to reach a defense of over 100 without buffs by wearing the full set with the Shell, a Paladin's Shield, and all accessories reforged to Warding.
