Hornets are dangerous flying enemies found in the Underground Jungle. They follow the Flying AI, floating just out of reach and then charging the player, while also firing Stingers that have a 1 in 3 chance to inflict the Poisoned debuff to the player for 10 seconds. These projectiles cannot be destroyed with weapons, and travel at about the same speed as the darts from a Dart Trap. Hornets shoot these stingers more often in Expert mode.

Variants[edit | edit source]

There are several variants of Hornet, they have identical drops.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Moss Hornets contribute towards the total for dropping the Hornet Banner, however the banner has no effect on them.
