Putrid Rat Moves


  • Bite: This attack is quite easy to dodge, Putrid Rat will stop in its tracks for a few seconds then lunge and try to bite the player. You can dodge it by getting away from it once it starts preparing its lunge.
  • Multiple bites: This move is very similar to the above move. And that is Putrid Rat will try to bite the player. Unlike before, this time it will have a red aura around it, and try to bite the player at least 4 to 5 times before stopping. You can dodge this attack by getting away from it until all its bites are done.
  • Dig: This is probably its most annoying move. Putrid Rat will dig and go underground. Once it goes down it will spawn multiple rats above that will have small health. You should try to get rid of them as quickly as possible. The reason for it is if you don’t eliminate them in time, you will have to fight both the Putrid Rat and its minion rats, once it crawls back up.
  • Poison attack: It will stop and collect some dust around itself, you can identify this move by a green aura followed by white particles collecting near it. Then it unleashes a poison attack at where it stands. This attack is also easy to dodge as you have to get away from it.
