The Sand Poacher is a Hardmode enemy that spawns in the Underground Desert biome. Similar to a Spider, it will follow and attempt to make contact with the player to attack, and is capable of climbing Walls.

Note that when on walls, the Sand Poacher's speed increases drastically, making escaping more difficult for the player. Given that the entirety of the Underground Desert is covered with walls, the player should always be cautious.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This enemy and The Possessed are the only enemies with the Spider AI that are not actual spiders.
  • It looks like a large version of the Black Scorpion critter.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.3.5: Fixed inconsistent naming for the banner (was Ravager Scorpion Banner).
