The Milkyway Weaver is a Hardmode, post-Lunatic Cultist, worm enemy that spawns in the area of the Stardust Pillar during the Lunar Events. It is similar to the Solar Pillar's Crawltipede, in that it is completely unaffected by gravity and floats freely through the air. However, it is much smaller than the Crawltipede, targets players anywhere instead of only in the air, and rather than its tail, its head is its only vulnerable part.

While the Milkyway Weaver attacks primarily by trying to charge towards the player to inflict contact damage, it slows down once every seven seconds. During this time, it charges for five seconds while emitting an increasingly bright blue glimmer before summoning an enemy affiliated with the Stardust Pillar in a constellation pattern, similar to the Stardust Pillar's own summoning attack. When summoning enemies, the Milkyway Weaver follows the same criteria as the Stardust Pillar, meaning it can only spawn other Milkyway Weavers, Star Cells, and Flow Invaders.


Milkyway Weavers consist of 10–14 segments in total.

  • Unlike all other worm enemies, whose segments are rigidly attached together, Milkyway Weavers' segments are connected loosely and will space out further the faster the enemy is moving. Because of this, if it is moving very fast, a Milkyway Weaver can span a large portion of the screen.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Milkyway Weaver: "The celestial energies of which this worm is born give its body and tail near unstoppable power as it twists through the skies."
