Star Caller

The Star Scouter is one of the most difficult Pre-Hardmode bosses. It can be considered a biome-specific boss for the Floating Islands.

While The Star Scouter is alive, the vanilla track Boss 5 will play.

Spawn[edit | edit source]

The Star Scouter does not spawn on its own, and requires the player to summon it with a Star Caller around Floating Island heights.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Star Scouter flies high above the player, launching an array of beam and laser attacks that have varying velocities.

Attacks[edit | edit source]

  • Its default attack is shooting a laser beam directly from its main bottom cannon after flying above the player. When the laser impacts a block, two waves of additional energy will be released that deal much less damage than the laser beam.
  • At 80% life, it will start shooting singular bursts of energy.
  • At 65% life, it will launch player-homing, block-piercing graviton surges.
  • At 55% life, it will shoot triplet beams of energy.

In Expert Mode

  • At 45% life, it will begin releasing unstable orbs of energy that explode into 8 directions
  • At 25% life, The Star Scouter will go passive, quadrupling its defense. Additionally, three Scouter Cores will be released, each of which pose a great threat to the players. Once each Scouter Core is defeated, The Star Scouter will no longer remain passive and will lose its bonus defense.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Although The Star Scouter has to be summoned around Floating Island heights, it can be lured down and fought at the Surface.
  • In Expert Mode when the Scouter Cores are out, The Star Scouter can still take damage, albeit far less with its bonus 75 defense. In this state, it does not attack.
  • Once the Scouter Cores are defeated, the Star Scouter will resume its attacks at a slightly higher rate of attack.
  • Attempting to hide from the direct sight of The Star Scouter will dramatically increase the frequency of Graviton Surge blasts.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Star Scouter bears close resemblance to the Martian Saucer, and its animations are based off of it.
  • One of the names of the Star Scouter's attacks, "Graviton Surge", is a reference to the character Zarya's ultimate of the same name from the online shooter game Overwatch.
