The Glyphid Exploder is a curious and deadly beast, and R&D remain torn on the subject of whether their behavior is caused by an invasive pathogen or through natural evolution. Every inch of the Exploder's outer layers is covered in fragile bladders of highly volatile fluids. These fluids combust violently when mixed, meaning a close encounter can result in both 3rd degree burns from the resulting explosion, as well as severe laceration by chitin shrapnel. R&D heartily advises to take them out from a safe distance - it is well-known to attempt to rush intruders.
~ Miner's Manual Description

The Glyphid Exploder is an explosive variant of the Glyphid Grunt with dark red skin and orange bulging tumors and veins which emit a slight glow. Exploders are much faster than most enemies and make little to no noise which they will often use to easily sneak up behind players and detonate before the player has time to react. The only recognizable noise they make is a distinct inflating and hissing sound they make before they explode. When an exploder gets close enough to a player or it takes enough damage, it will freeze in place and then detonate, leaving behind a crater coated in Slate or Hot Rock if in the Magma Core. Exploders have very little health, so they can be easily disposed of as they approach. Exploders always explode on death unless killed with a critical shot to the head or frozen before killed such as with a freezing weapon like the Cryo Cannon or the Cryo Grenade.

This creature has a Radioactive Exclusion Zone variant, which explodes into a cloud of radiation instead of making a normal explosion.
