Undead Miners (and the Vampire Miner on Old-gen console version Old-gen console, Mobile version Mobile, and 3DS version3DS) are enemies that appear in the Cavern layer and follow the Fighter AI. The 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.

Undead Miners are immune to the Poisoned and Venom debuffs.

Killing them is the only way to receive 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 4 Gold Coin Desktop VersionConsole Version / 8 Gold Coin Old-gen console versionMobile Version3DS version.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Old-gen console versionMobile 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 versionMobile 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.
