This article is about the enemy. For the NPC that spawns after defeating the invasion, see Pirate.

The Pirate Captain appears during a Hardmode Pirate Invasion. It attacks using a gun that shoots at a speed comparable to the Minishark, then stops firing for a few seconds and fires a cannonball. The cannonball has a short range and detonates upon impact with blocks.

Pirate Captains are immune to knockback.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Only one Pirate Captain can exist at a time, but multiple can spawn over the course of an invasion.
  • It does not attack if there are solid blocks in the line of sight.
