Not to be confused with the unrelated The Corruption (mod).
The Corruption is a rare biome found in the Overworld. It is a deadly place with deadlier versions of other mobs. The grass and leaves are purple, the water is a darker purple and the sky is orange. Stone is dull red.
Regular mobs try to stay away from it while corrupted mobs try to stay in it. If any mob is forced in or out of this biome, then they instantly die. It is always night. Mobs here drop twice the loot than their regular counterparts.
- Corrupted Zombie - When it hits you it inflicts slowness so you can't escape.
- Corrupted Skeleton - Arrows normally cause weakness and have knockback when you get too close.
- Corrupted Creeper - Do smaller explosions but also cause nausea and blindness when explodes.
- Corrupted Horseman (Rare) - Has higher health and defence but can also leave the corruption, corrupting ground behind it, thus spreading the corruption.
There are also corruption cores located in small caverns underneath (each bome having 3-5). When 3 of them are destroyed, The Corrupted spawn.
No bosses can be spawned here.
