The Skeleton Archer is a monster found in the underground Corruption and The Hallow after you defeat the Wall of Flesh. It deals 78 damage to unarmored players and has 260 HP. It fires Flaming Arrows that can hit from a distance. It wears a green archer's costume. The Skeleton Archer drops around 4 Silver Coins upon death. While they are very dangerous in three block high shafts, they can be put to rest quite easily in close combat. If a skeleton archer is holding out his bow and you hit him, the following arrow will not be shot. If you get hit by the arrow, there is a chance you will get the On Fire! debuff. The Flaming Arrows he shoots aren't extinguished underwater.
