The Headless Horseman is a monster that spawns during the Pumpkin Moon event. They are one of the hardest enemies of the Pumpkin Moon when outside in the open, as they have very high health, move very fast, are almost completely resistant to knockback, and do immense damage to a player in a short amount of time. A good way to defeat them as a swarm outside in the open is to fly, while hitting them with quick, piercing, high damage melee weapons such as the Terra Blade, Paladin's Hammer, etc. However, they are easier to defeat when outside a house or when the player builds a wall that makes them stuck outside it, the player could just hit it with any weapon unharmed. It spawns from wave 9 until wave 14.


  • Headless Horsemen become stuck once the Pumpkin Moon event ends and dawn begins, and the player can kill them without worrying about time.
