A Clinger is a hardmode enemy that use the plant AI and resembles a corrupt Man Eater. Clingers launch orbs of cursed flames at the player, which can inflict the Cursed Inferno debuff. Clingers are found in the Underground Corruption biome.
Clingers are one of the two creatures that drop valuable Cursed Flames, and the more common of the two. A player who intends to use Cursed Arrows or Cursed Bullets, which have the highest damage values of any ammunition in the game, should make an effort to kill them whenever possible.
Clingers will not launch their projectile within a couple seconds of being struck by knockback; players can use this to their advantage and "lock down" a Clinger from being able to retaliate until it is slain. Additionally, Clingers' projectiles do not travel through solid objects, which players can use to their advantage while approaching.
