The Tactical Skeleton is a Hardmode, post-Plantera enemy that appears in the Dungeon. Because it is armed with a Tactical Shotgun, the Tactical Skeleton stays a distance away from the player in order to fire. It is most common in areas backed with Tiled Walls.

It is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) or its upgrades.


  • As it drops the SWAT Helmet, the Tactical Skeleton seems to be modeled as an undead SWAT unit.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Tactical Skeleton: "With thick armor and mighty boomsticks, it's clear these bones are prepared for a siege. Part of an elite military unit in their past lives."
  • According to this entry, it wields a Boomstick, although it drops a Tactical Shotgun. Neither of the two weapons are represented in the enemy's sprite.
  • The weapon wielded by it resembles the SPAS-12.
