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. All hornets drop the Bezoar, however only regular hornets (and their variants) drop Stingers, while Hardmode Moss Hornets drop Tattered Bee Wing.

Hornets are immune to the Poisoned, Confused, and Venom debuffs.

Note that although Moss Hornets contribute towards the total for dropping the Hornet Banner, the banner's effects do not apply to them.

Variants[edit | edit source]

There are several variants of Hornet, most of which have identical drops. Exceptions are the Hardmode Moss Hornet and the Old-gen console versionMobile Version3DS version Dragon Hornet.
