The Corruptor is a Hard Mode monster which spawns in The Corruption after the Wall of Flesh has been defeated. It may be likened to a larger and fiercer version of the Eater of Souls, as it possesses similar appearance and movement patterns. While flying around, it displays a slight visual blurring effect much like the player does when wearing certain armor sets (such as the Shadow Armor set).

Most notably, the Corruptor has a powerful projectile attack known as Vile Spit, which has the capability to inflict players with the debuff "Weak". The projectile itself is destructible with any weapon (it has 1 HP), so it may be eliminated before it causes any damage to the player. Like all other projectiles launched by mobs, Vile Spit will not drop anything.

Like many Hard Mode enemies, the Corruptor can still pose a threat even to players with the best defensive equipment. Powerful ranged weapons are advised for dispatching it with maximum speed and minimal risk.


A Corruptor - firing/spitting the Vile Spit


  • The Corruptor may be inspired by a Zerg air unit of the same name and similar characteristics in the popular real-time strategy game Starcraft II.


  • The Corruptor may glitch where the body will look like 2 Corruptors glued together (This mostly happens in dimly lit places), but this is only a graphical glitch.

Update Info


  • Vile Spit no longer corrupts blocks.


  • Added to the game.
