The Abyss Probe is a Hardmode enemy found within the The Void or summoned in large groups by The Abysscrawlers. It flies towards the player while firing 2 abyssal lasers in a spread that inflict Shadowflame.
Dark being born from the Abyss of the Mind. It appears to take inspiration from the shape of Probes, the mechanical monsters that fight with the legendary worm Destroyer. However, these are irregular and made out of plate armour, rather than the smooth cast-metal bodies of Probes.
The least weird of dark creatures, they nonetheless still interest me. If the Abyss forms creatures from memories of its creators minds, then they must have had at some point been thinking about Probes a lot? Very strange indeed.
