Spawn[edit | edit source]
The Seed of Infection is summoned by killing the Strange Portal miniboss.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
During its first phase it will try to follow the player and shoot projectiles, sometimes it will burst multiple projectiles.
In its second phase it will still try to follow you but will have more attacks, the most basic one is when he speeds up and tries to get to you, it will also try to stay on the same horizontal line as you but it wont be as fast as you. It can teleport and summon 3 orbs to fight you, it also has an attack where it bursts many projectiles in the air slowly falling down. Close to the end of the fight it will start shooting different projectiles that do more damage.
Aftermath[edit | edit source]
- After the Seed of Infection is defeated, 4 new enemies will begin to spawn in the world, Infected Zombie at day, Infected Cave Bat and Infected Giant Worm in caves, and Infected Demon Eye at night in Hardmode.
- Killing this boss reveals the Infected Eye and Vlitch Overlords on the Boss Checklist.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Piercing weapons are good for later in the fight, when it summons many Hive Growths.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- It replaced a removed boss called the Xenomite Crystal, which had a second phase after depleting its first amount of health.
