Guardians will swim around in the water and attack random aquatic mobs that get near them. They mainly attack players, squids and glow squids. They have one eye that stares to its target. They swim with their spikes retracted which come back when they stop.

The Guardian attacks the players in two ways.

They either shoot lasers when far away from the players. The laser shoots in 2 seconds intervals and charges up eventually dealing 6 hearts damage. This laser pierces armor. However, if the players swim too close then the guardian stop charging and swim away.

The Guardians have spikey defences that cover its whole body. When players go too close to melee attack, then the spikes extend and hurt the player.
