The Molten Core is a pre-Hardmode enemy that spawns around the Meteorite biome. It functions similarly to a Meteor Head, as it tries to fly directly towards the player. It will try to collide with the player to deal contact damage, it also carries around 3 flaming meteors that will inflict the On Fire! debuff upon contact, when the Molten Core is killed it will drop the flaming meteors that will remain on the ground for a short period still able to inflict damage and the On Fire! debuff to the player and friendly NPCs.
