The Lifeform Analyzer is an informational accessory that displays the name of rare enemies and undiscovered NPCs (see list below) around the player. It is purchased from the Traveling Merchant for 50000*5.

It is one of the three parts necessary to make the R.E.K. 3000, with the others being the Tally Counter and the Radar, and as such is a required ingredient in making the Cell Phone.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This content is transcluded from Informational Accessories/note.Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions Unlike most accessories, informational accessories such as the Lifeform Analyzer do not need to be equipped in an accessory slot. The Lifeform Analyzer may be carried in the player's inventory without loss of functionality, unless equipped to a social slot. Additionally, the info it provides will be shared with nearby players of the same team in multiplayer. Keep in mind modifiers will no longer apply to the player when not equipped, however.
  • Despite Mimics having a rarity of 4 on the Lifeform Analyzer, they are one of the more commonly found "rare" enemies, when compared to the other rarity 4 enemy, Tim. Other enemies such as the Rainbow Slime only spawn somewhat frequently during very specific conditions, making them much harder to find than enemies with a higher rarity.
  • The Hunter Potion can be used to find the exact location of targets detected by the Lifeform Analyzer.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
