|Attack type||No attacks|
|Notes||Grants invulnerability to Creatures, stops the player from touching objects.|
The Black Substance is a passive creature found throughout the Swamp which directly affects other objects. It can be found in Hideout 4 swarming a crate, as well as in the Ruins and Huge Lake enveloping Red Chompers. Black Substance can sometimes be encountered during nightly invasions infesting Huge Dogs and Chompers.
It can be found attached to objects (such as crates), effectively stopping the player from being able to interact with them. It may also be found attached to a Red Chomper or Huge Dog; while covered in the substance they have a white health bar - similar to that of a barricade - and are invulnerable to all forms of damage (with the exception of fire).
Black Substance is vulnerable to Light. To remove Black Substance, the player has to shine a light source at it, such as Torch, or Flashlight. Once the white health bar has been depleted, the Black Substance will dissipate.
- A lantern also does not appear to affect the Black Substance.
- This could be intentional, as a passively equipped light source would easily make the Black Substance become completely useless as a feature in-game.
- The glow created by a Monoculus, such as the one found in Hideout 4, will also work on Black Substance.
