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.

It takes 1 blast to freeze a Poison Mosquito with an Ice Staff and it takes 1 Sleep Dart to put it to sleep.

Prototype.png Tips

  • 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.
