The 巨型陆龟 is a 困难模式 丛林 敌怪. It attacks by going into its shell and hurling itself at players, dealing incredible damage on contact.
It drops 海龟壳s, which are vital for crafting 海龟盔甲 (which is used to craft the near-endgame 甲虫盔甲).
- Damaging a Giant Tortoise causes them to stop their attack animation.
- When spinning, they take very little damage as their defense doubles while spinning.
- Melee is highly effective, as long as the player stays close to the Giant Tortoise and continues attacking, it will be unable to use its jump attack.
- Try not to make it enter 液体 as it will make it automatically charge at the player.
- Any tactics that work for the 冰雪陆龟 should be effective against the Giant Tortoise as well.
- The Giant Tortoise is very difficult in 专家模式 as its health and damage are doubled.
- It's recommended that the player defeat at least one 机械 Boss, recommending 毁灭者 (机械骷髅王 for 专家模式 players), and get 神圣盔甲 before farming for 海龟壳s.
- It should be noted that, due to the larger area of space for it to spawn in, Giant Tortoises can be farmed much easier on the surface with a 水蜡烛 and 战斗药水 than in the 地下丛林.
- This enemy, as well as its 冰雪陆龟 variation, appears to reference a similar tortoise enemy in Super Metroid that also attacks the player with the same flying spin.
- Despite being called the Giant 陆龟, it drops 海龟 Shells.
