The Korlok Tyrant-Weed is a hideous agglomeration of near-sentient plants, working together as one. At the center, the armored, clam-like heart of the whole structure, a biological factory pulsing with ill intent. Surrounding it, watchful, aggressive sprouts, ready to fire globules of stinging ichor at any adversary. The Heart-Clam will continually attempt to spawn new sprouts, so be sure to take the damn thing out when it opens up to give birth.
— Miner's Manual Description

The Korlok Tyrant-Weed is a mini-boss found in any biome and on any mission type except Point Extraction. There is a 5% chance per mission for the Tyrant-Weed to spawn, and only 1 will spawn per mission. The Tyrant-Weed is found surrounded by Korlok Sprouts, which have a spit attack similar to the Spitball Infector's attack. Killing enough of these will expose its heart. The Tyrant-Weed also will periodically spawn Healing Pods, which slowly regenerate its health.

The Tyrant-Weed only becomes active and begins attacking the Dwarves whenever it is attacked or a Dwarf comes close to it. If an aggressive Tyrant-Weed is ignored for a certain amount of time, it will eventually become inactive again until it is disturbed once more.

Combat[]

Each time the Tyrant-Weed's heart opens, it spawns Korlok Sprouts and Healing Pods. Sprouts attack with a green spit projectile that flies along a straight path, which can be destroyed by shooting at it. Healing Pods do not attack but will regenerate the heart's health. Once enough Sprouts and Healing Pods are destroyed, the heart will briefly open; this is the chance for Dwarves to damage it. The Tyrant-Weed's health bar is split into 3 equal pieces, and once one of these segments has been depleted, it cannot be healed again.

The Tyrant-Weed drops three Tyrant Shards when killed, which give a total of 1050 Credit.png and 1500 Experience Points (multiplied by the Hazard Bonus).

Trivia[]

  • Despite the Korlok's opened bud appearing as a weakpoint, it is not, and will thus not benefit from any weakpoint damage mods or other benefits.
  • When a Korlok Sprout is on fire, it is unable to attack.
  • Doretta is able to destroy a Tyrant-Weed if she runs it over, even if it is closed.
