"Vampire Miner" redirects here. For the Solar Eclipse enemy, see Vampire.

Undead Miners (and Vampire Miners on Old-gen console version Old-gen console and 3DS version3DS) are enemies that appear in the Cavern layer and follow the Fighter AI. Undead Miners wear a Mining Helmet, which provides a small amount of light around them. This light makes them much easier to find and can sometimes reveal sealed caves, much like blooming Blinkroot. Undead Miners can break down doors.

Killing them is the only way to obtain the Bone Pickaxe, Mining Shirt, and the Mining Pants. The Mining Helmet can be obtained from Undead Miners, but can also be bought from the Merchant for Desktop, Console, and Mobile versions 40000*4 / Old-gen console version3DS version 80000*8.

On the Desktop version Desktop version, it is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform AnalyzerDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Old-gen console version3DS version The Vampire Miner does not take extra damage from the Stake Launcher, unlike the Vampire from the Solar Eclipse, even though they are both vampires.
  • Old-gen console version3DS version Vampire Miners do not wear the Mining Helmet and do not drop it, so keep this in mind when farming. However, they still give off light, like the Undead Miner.
