Devourers are large worms that spawn in The Corruption, though they are uncommon compared the abundant Eaters of Souls. Like other worms, they attack by burrowing through tiles to reach the player.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Devourers will not spawn if the player is standing in front housing walls.
  • Only hitting the head of the Devourer will display their kill count, although killing them will always add to it.
    • Additionally, the Devourer Banner will only affect damage taken and dealt by the Devourer's head.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Obtaining the Ball O' Hurt is a good option for players who have trouble with killing Devourers.
  • The easiest way to kill a Devourer for very new players is to dodge and use Wooden Boomerang or any other ranged/mace type weapon.
  • Spears also tend to rid a player of worm type enemies very easily.
  • A distinctive burrowing sound can be heard when a Devourer is approaching.
  • Also, you can see small dirt particles springing up where the worm is.

History[edit | edit source]
