The Iron Hulk is a Mob exclusive to the Hamlet DLC.

Brain Behavior

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.

Prototype Tips

  • 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.

Placeholder Trivia

  • The Iron Hulk's Torso and Arm attack is similar to that of the Deerclops in the Don't Starve Together Event 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.
