The Perforator Cyst is a rare Pre-Hardmode stationary enemy that spawns in The Crimson biome. When killed, it will summon The Perforators. The Perforator Cyst has abnormally high life for Pre-Hardmode, ensuring that early players won't accidentally summon the boss. It is the Crimson counterpart to the Hive Cyst.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Perforators will spawn directly where the Perforator 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 Hive Cyst.
- Perforator Cysts spawn three times as often after defeating the Eater of Worlds or Brain of Cthulhu if The Perforators have not been defeated yet.
- Additionally, spawn rates are reduced by 90 percent in Hardmode.
