The Brood Nexus is one of the great mysteries of Hoxxes. While we know for a fact that Glyphids hatch from eggs, these malodorous, organic protuberances nonetheless expel freshly birthed and ravenous Glyphid Swarmers. It's theorized that the Brood Nexus is a completely separate genus, somehow able to replicate the DNA of other species, and use their "designs" for its own protection. Either way, if you meet one, take it out with extreme prejudice.
— Miner's Manual Description

The Glyphid Brood Nexus is a stationary creature type that spawns Glyphid Spawn, a swarmer variant. Upon death, it releases a large group of Glyphid Spawn. The Glyphid Brood Nexus spawns in large open caves, and can be found in any biome.

Breakable Weakpoints

The Brood Nexus possess 4 eyes, unlike regular weakpoints, they are breakable.
They have a base health of 300, with a Special scaling and can only be damaged directly (ie not by Area Damage).
Unlike most breakable weakpoints, weakpoint damage counts toward damage dealt to break them. Additionally, unlike most weakpoints, they still grant their weakpoint bonus when the Brood Nexus is frozen, resulting in a total x6 multiplier.
Upon dealing 300 damage or more to an eye, it will explode, dealing 600 damage to the Nexus. This explosion is not affected by the Frozen damage multiplier.


The Brood Nexus has no attack of its own, relying on its tankiness and producing an endless swarm of Glyphid Spawns to defend itself.

On death, the Brood Nexus explodes into a rain of multiple Glyphid Spawns. If frozen when destroyed, it will not release the group of Spawns.
