We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

The Corruptor is a Hardmode enemy that spawns within The Corruption. It is a greater version of the Eater of Souls, with an added projectile attack (Vile Spit) that inflicts the Weak debuff on players. Corruptors are immune to the Confused debuff.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • As with Fire Imps and Dark Casters, their projectile is easily destroyed with a single hit from any weapon.
  • Despite their name, they are no longer able to spread the Corruption.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It leaves behind an afterimage as it moves, much like a set of Necro armor.
