Salthoppers are an enemy found in the Salt Caves. It acts similarly to a slime, hopping about and attempting to attack the player by jumping into them. The salthopper always alternates between two long jumps and one high jump. Unlike most slimes, salthoppers sink in water, but when jumping they still float to the surface.
In Expert Mode, it will inflict the Dessicating debuff, adding four seconds of the debuff with each hit, preventing player life regen. If the player has more than ten seconds of dessicating, it will also deal rapid damage and reverse the player's controls, similarly to Confused. This makes the salt biome a good deal more dangerous to explore.
