The Infected Remote is a Hardmode summon weapon that drops from The Plaguebringer Goliath. It summons Virili, the Plague Princess, who floats by the player and attacks enemies with various attacks set in the following pattern:

  • Distances herself away from an enemy and launches up to six plague nukes that create a small explosion on enemy hits.
  • Summons several miniature Plaguebringers and tiny plagued bees around her. Plagued bees home in towards the enemy similarly to normal friendly bees, while Mini-Plaguebringers perform up to three successful horizontal charges before dissipating and may idle when no enemies are nearby.
  • Charges her enemy up to a total of nine times.

All of Virili’s patterns are based on a timer that will run even if no enemies are nearby, meaning she can start attacking an enemy in the middle of her attack pattern. Additionally, she will immediately occupy all of the player’s remaining minion slots, causing her damage to grow proportionately to the amount of slots used.

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 Infected Remote has over a Ruthless one is knockback.


Used in[]


  • When summoned, the minion's damage is multiplied by: 1 plus log10 of the player's remaining minion slots. The damage value is rounded down to the nearest integer.
    • For example, if the player had 4 remaining minion slots when the item was used, the resulting base damage would be 120. 75 * (1 + log(4)) = 75 * (1 + 0.60206) = 75 * 1.60206 = 120.15, rounded down.

Base damage increase of the Infected Remote for the number of minion slots used.
