"An eight legged menace is prowling the tundra..."

The Borean Strider is a surface snow biome Hardmode boss that spawns during Hardmode Blizzards. It drops one of its five weapons when defeated and has its own associated trophy.

Spawn[edit | edit source]

Borean Striders can spawn on their own as long as the player is within a Hardmode Blizzard, but their spawn can be expedited with a Strider's Tear.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Borean Striders leap around the battle field much like slimes do, as well as unleashing various frost attacks at the player such as:

  • Upon landing after a hop, it releases a medium range shockwave that chills and damages players.
  • Shooting a high velocity icicle attack that has a chance to inflict frostburn and freeze the player on hit.
  • Releasing a wave of snow that deals moderate damage and has a chance to inflict frostburn on the player.
