Terraria Calamity mod boss list and guide (2024)

Terraria will always have a special place in my heart thanks to its whimsical atmosphere, pixel art style, and soundtrack that just hits differently. Even though I can spend hours playing vanilla Terraria, turning to mods like Calamity is inevitable.

Calamity, for all of you who don’t know, is a special mod that adds a ton of new bosses, biomes, structures, additional recipes to craft, more songs to vibe to, and a new way to level up. This mod is huge, providing weeks of extra fun. On top of all of this, it’s quite a challenge, even for Terraria veterans.

Here’s the full list of Terraria Calamity bosses and additional guidelines on preparing for combat and summoning bosses.

In Terraria, charging blindly into bosses is not the best idea. Instead, it’s best to grind up weapons, increase your armor, and collect the necessary reagents. On top of that, I recommend stocking up on consumables before you go toe to toe with the strongest creatures in Terraria.

It’s also worth building your own fighting platforms with more than enough space to kite the bosses and dodge their abilities. You can deposit all your goodies to Piggy Bank if you think there’s a chance you might fail.

How to summon Terraria Calamity mod bosses

Bosses in Terraria rarely spawn on their own. Instead, you have to create summoning items for them to spawn. Summoning methods can vary from getting different items and throwing them into a body of water to simply finding a certain reagent and using it in a specific area. Each boss in Terraria and the Calamity mod has a unique way of summoning.

To summon stronger bosses, you first need to defeat the easier ones. That will change your map, allowing you to access the areas you didn’t have access to before. Remember, bosses spawn under certain conditions. For example, some can be spawned at night or in the jungle.
