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.
Fighting Strategy[edit | edit source]
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.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- 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.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Unlike normal Mosquitoes which spawn from Ponds in the Marsh, the Poison Mosquitoes do not spawn from Tidal Pools in the Tidal Marsh.
