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 on any mission type on any biome. Only one may generate upon creation of the mission and it will not respawn. It has a 6% chance to spawn per mission. The Tyrant-Weed will be found surrounded by Korlok Sprouts, which have a spit attack similar to the Spitball Infector's attack. Killing enough of these will expose the Heart-Clam to attack. Korlok Healing Pods will heal the Heart Clam.

The Tyrant-Weed will only become active and begin firing upon your team whenever it is shot at or a dwarf comes within proximity of it. If a Tyrant-Weed is ignored for a certain amount of time after it becomes active, it will eventually return to being inactive until it is disturbed again.

Doretta is able to destroy a Korlok even during its closed state.

Combat

Spawns Korlok Sprouts and Healing Pods after every time its Heart-Clam opens. Sprouts will attack you with a green spit projectile along a straight path. while Healing Pods will quickly heal the Heart-Clam. The Heart-Clam only opens briefly once every Sprout and Pod has been killed; this is the chance for Dwarves to damage it. The Tyrant-Weed's health bar is split into 3 equal pieces. Once one of these bars has been depleted, any Healing Pods that spawn will not be able to regenerate any portion of that depleted bar. The Heart-Clam drops three Tyrant Shards when killed, which give a total of 1050 Credit.png and 1500 Xp icon.png (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.
