The Goblin Scout is an uncommon surface enemy. It looks like a Goblin Invasion enemy, but spawns outside that event during ordinary gameplay. However, the Goblin Battle Standard, which summons the Goblin Army manually, is crafted from the Tattered Cloth that Goblin Scouts drop.

Goblin Scouts spawn only in both outer sixths of the world lengthwise; therefore, they will not spawn in the middle four sixths of the world (around the world spawn point). They will also not spawn in The Corruption or The Crimson and will only spawn during the day.

It is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform AnalyzerDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Goblin Scouts are able to open or break doors.
  • They have spawning conditions similar to King Slime.
  • They are the only enemy able to hurt the Old Man.
