The Astral Probe is a Hardmode enemy which spawns in the Astral Infection biome. It has two variants, both known as Astrum Deus Probes, which are spawned during the Astrum Deus fight: a flying variant and an orbiting variant.
Those that spawn in the Astral Infection, and the flying Astrum Deus Probes, move freely through the air and fire lasers at the player, similarly to the Probes spawned by The Destroyer. The flying Astrum Deus Probes differ from normal Astral Probes due to their greatly increased health and further increased damage reduction in Revengeance Mode.
The orbiting Astrum Deus Probes circle around the head of one of the Astrum Deus worms, typically in very large groups. If that worm is destroyed, they will immediately jump to another worm. They fire astral mines into the air which linger in place for a very long time, creating a minefield that must be carefully navigated through or avoided entirely.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Probes that spawn in Astrum Deus's fight do not count toward the Astral Probe kill count and are not affected by the Banner buff.
- Up to 3 of the flying variant of the Astrum Deus Probe can spawn at a time while any of the smaller Astrum Deus worms are alive. Up to 6 can spawn when only the main Astrum Deus worm is left.
