Martian OfficerHardmode exclusive
Lacking offensive weaponry, officers in the Martian forces favor defensive measures to focus on relaying tactics to the soldiers.
— The Bestiary
The Martian Officer is a Hardmode, post-Golem enemy that spawns during the Martian Madness event. Martian Officers will always initially spawn with a protective Bubble Shield, which provides the Officer significant added defense and hit points, as well as immunity to lava and knockback, until it is depleted. After the Bubble Shield is destroyed, the Officer can now actually be harmed. If the Martian Officer isn't killed quickly after the Bubble Shield is depleted, the Bubble Shield will re-activate with full strength, after approximately 3 seconds.
- The Bubble Shield is one of the few 'enemies' that doesn't have an Expert Mode buff or boost.
