The Tomb Crawler is a burrowing enemy found in the Underground Desert. Following the same AI pattern as Giant Worms, it moves through solid blocks to attack the player by charging. The sound of its burrowing grows louder and faster as it draws near. Like many other worm-type enemies, its head segment deals more damage on contact, but is also the part of its body most vulnerable to damage. It is the pre-Hardmode counterpart of the Dune Splicer.
