The Hive Cyst is a rare Pre-Hardmode stationary enemy that spawns in The Corruption biome. When killed, it will summon The Hive Mind. The Hive Cyst has abnormally high life for Pre-Hardmode, ensuring that early players won't accidentally summon the boss. It is the Corruption counterpart to the Perforator Cyst.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Hive Mind will spawn directly where the Hive Cyst was after killing it, which means that unprepared players might be taken by surprise.
- Despite being classified as an enemy, minions will not attack the cyst, exactly like with the Perforator Cyst.
- Hive Cysts spawn three times as often after defeating the Eater of Worlds or Brain of Cthulhu if The Hive Mind has not been defeated yet.
- Additionally, spawn rates are reduced by 90% in Hardmode.
