Thunder Shield (100%)

Defenders are small masked monsters who carry a Protector with their hands and move around to shield other enemies. Defenders are only found in the Astrolab with 5 BSC active.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Defenders mostly run around to avoid the player's attacks and keep the force field active on the enemies they are shielding. They follow one enemy in particular, but their force field can apply to other enemies nearby, including through the walls. When the player is within close range and has killed the main shielded enemy, Defenders can attack by swinging the dummy downwards.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The name Defender was previously used by the Protectors, which these enemies carry around.
  • Defenders were added with the v1.2 update, aka Rise of the Giant DLC in March 2019.
