The Ice Tortoise is a Hardmode enemy that is found in the Underground Snow biome. It attacks by spinning inside its shell and jumping at the player, similarly to the Giant Tortoise and Giant Shelly. It flies with high speed and accuracy, and deals moderate contact damage, making it dangerous to deal with for characters entering hardmode.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
- While the Ice Tortoise hides in its shell, it takes very little damage. The quickest way to defeat it is to attack it continuously so it can't retreat into its shell. Furthermore, while it is stuck like this, it will be unable to jump at the player, making it easy to kill safely. Any rapid-firing weapon can easily take it out. When attacking with melee weapons, using a weapon with high knockback will help keep it away.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Ice Tortoises emit a fair amount of light, making them easy to spot. This helps in revealing unexplored caverns.
