Iron Hulk is a Mob exclusive to the DLC.
It is normally an unassuming heap of overgrown robot parts that will come to life and attack when mined with a
Pickaxe. They can also be stirred to life with lightning. During the Aporkalypse, the Iron Hulk will remain activated constantly.
There are four different parts to be found: a head, a torso, a leg, or an arm. The arms and torsos are by far the most devastating ones, as they will shoot a giant laser beam, which can cause immense damage, and if unarmored, can instantly kill the player.
The player can, however, farm
Iron Ore by mining them repeatedly.

It is recommended to mine the leg pieces, as they are the weakest and easiest to kite, therefore allowing the player to dodge and repeatedly mine them.
The biome Iron Hulks are found in are often next to Thunderbirds. This can cause the Iron Hulks to be struck by lightning, awakening them.
The Iron Hulk's Torso and Arm attack is similar to that of the Deerclops in the Event Don't Starve Together Winter's Feast.
The Iron Hulk's lua file gives it a drop table and has unimplemented code that gives the Iron Hulk health.
According to Rhymes with Play #213, the identity of the Iron Hulks' creator is a secret.
The Iron Hulk can attack and kill shadow creatures. This is unlikely to be a bug, as it has a custom animation.
In the World Customization menu, they are called Rusted Hulks.
