The Hive Pod is a Hardmode sentry that is dropped from Hives after Astrum Deus has been defeated. The Astral Hive spawns homing Hivelings that will target a single enemy nearby and move through blocks. If no enemies are present, the Hivelings float up in a cone away from the Astral Hive, until either they explode, or an enemy enters their range. The Astral Hive will fall through platforms, and cannot be placed on one.

Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stats bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, Minions cannot deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Hive Pod has over a Ruthless one is knockback.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Hive Pod can be considered as the alternative to the Dreadmine Staff as the Hivelings have lower damage and faster fire rate compared to the Dreadmines, and the fact that they are available at around the same time.
