Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Steampunker's move-in requirements do not expressly require a world to be in Hardmode. Summoning and defeating a Mechanical Boss in a pre-Hardmode world will allow the Steampunker to move in, though this can only be legitimately achieved by carrying over resources from an existing Hardmode world.
- When fighting against hostile mobs, the Steampunker will shoot a Clockwork Assault Rifle at said enemies.
- You may have to re-defeat Eye of Cthulhu, Eater of Worlds/Brain of Cthulhu, and/or Skeletron after the Steampunker arrives in order to buy the Steampunk Boiler.
- The Steampunker does not sell dark blue solution if you move her to the mushroom biome, but it is sold by the Truffle instead
Trivia[edit | edit source]

- One of the Steampunker's possible names, Whitney, is also the name of Cenx, a Terraria developer and Redigit's wife.
