Purulent Zombie (Sewers)
|This article is about the sewers variant of the Purulent Zombies. For the graveyard variant, see Purulent Zombie (Graveyard).|
Purulent Zombies are enemies found in the Ancient Sewers, Stilt Village, and the Toxic Sewers (4+ BSC). They throw eggs at the player that spawn Corpse Worms. When close they will do a regular swiping attack.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Purulent Zombies have a large aggro radius and can detect the player even through walls and on different platforms. They will fire an egg at the player at long range or use their melee attack if they are in close range.

Strategy[edit | edit source]
These Purulent Zombies pose little threat alone. Their melee attacks are just as slow as predictable as the regular Zombie's and they make no effort in trying to avoid you. It's the Corpse Worms it spawns you should be worried about. They can teleport to chase the player and their attacks cover a decent amount of ground. While they have low HP, the more Corpse Worms there are the most likely it is to get hit by them.
Melee attacks with a decent range can hit both the Zombie and Worms, but shorter weapons and ranged weapons with no piercing can be a problem. If that's the case, lure the Worms out further from the Zombie then rush down and kill the Zombie then the Worms.
The Corpse Worms attack fairly slowly, so you can easily lure them out by moving to a different platform and have them chase you.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- In previous versions, they were named Host Zombies.
- Before v1.2, Purulent Zombies would spawn their respective minions when defeated.
