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 and mask.

While The Borean Strider is alive, its exclusive Music will play.

Spawn[edit | edit source]

The Borean Strider can spawn on its own as long as the player is within a Hardmode Blizzard, but its spawn can be expedited with a Strider's Tear. Its presence is indicated with the message "An eight legged menace is prowling the tundra..."

Behavior[edit | edit source]

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

  • Sending out frosty shockwaves after every hop that chills and damages players.
  • Shooting a high velocity icicle attack that has a chance to inflict Frostburn and freezes the player on hit.
  • Releasing a crystal wave of icy bursts that deal significant damage and freezes hit players for one second.
  • Upon reaching 50% life, the cracking abdomen of the Borean Strider will rupture, spawning a set of Borean Hoppers.
  • While below 50% life, the Borean Strider will spawn Borean Hoppers and Borean Mytes in an alternating pattern.
