Pirate Captains are a Hard Mode enemy that spawn as part of the Pirate Invasion event, which is triggered by the Pirate Map. Out of all the pirates, they are the the strongest and have the most defense. They are also quite resistant to knockback, despite their size (about the size of a player). They can be very deadly due to their cannon, which is able to inflict large amounts of damage to a player.

Notes

  • Focus all damage and attacks on the Pirate Captain as he will not be able to attack with his cannon or his repetitive firing weapon as long as he is receiving damage. A rapid-fire weapon is helpful in this situation, such as the Minishark, Megashark or Uzi.
  • A strategy for weak players are to fight them is to build a barrier, wait for it to come and use any weapon that could penetrate blocks or avoid the player from damage (Death SickleStaff of the Frost Hydra).
