The Hive Pod is a Hardmode sentry that is dropped from Hives after Astrum Aureus has been defeated. The Astral Hive will spawn Hivelings if there are any enemies nearby, which will home onto the closest enemy to them, even through walls.

Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Hive Pod has over a Ruthless one is knockback.


  • This weapon can also be obtained from the Astral Crate after Astrum Aureus has been defeated at a 20% chance.
