The Poison Mosquito is a hostile Mob in the Shipwrecked DLC. It is a yellow-purple-coloured version of the normal Mosquito, and its attacks Poison the target. It has a 50% chance to drop a Yellow Mosquito Sack and a 25% chance to drop a Venom Gland.
Poison Mosquitoes spawn either in Monsoon Season from Flooded tiles or via a bad outcome of the Slot Machine. Like Mosquitoes, they are fast-moving and can be caught with a Bug Net. They have a small yellow blood sac which grows with each successful attack. On the fourth successful attack, the Poison Mosquito will explode and cause additional damage to its surroundings.
Below is the number of hits it takes with each weapon to kill a Poison Mosquito when playing with characters with a default damage modifier. The Weather Pain is not included due to the random nature of its projectile.
- A Seashell Suit or a Horned Helmet will prevent the player from being poisoned by the Mosquitoes.
- If the player is quick to respond and immediately attacks upon aggroing a Poison Mosquito they can stunlock it before it gets a hit in, thus preventing poisoning.
- Unlike normal Mosquitoes which spawn from Ponds in the Marsh, the Poison Mosquitoes do not spawn from Tidal Pools in the Tidal Marsh.
