The Nutcracker is an enemy that spawns during the Frost Moon, starting at wave 3. It attacks in two phases.

During its first phase, the Nutcracker will walk towards the player. During the second phase, it will begin spinning rapidly.


Nutcrackers are taller than players and lack any sort of ranged attack, so standing beyond an opening which is three blocks high will allow players to fight them with minimal risk. However, this will not be effective in later waves that include the Everscream. If dealing with many of these enemies at once, it is best to use a strong enemy-piercing weapon, such as the Paladin's Hammer.
