How to Summon the Grandparent Boss

While you can encounter Grandparent in your ordinary explorations in higher stages/levels of the game, most of the players will face it as a boss when initiating a Teleporter Event.

After beating Grandparent, there might be a chane to get Planula instead of the usual Uncommon item as your reward.

Prior to the Anniversary update, the Grandparent boss was already in the game, but it was an unused enemy and it could be spawned using console commands.
