Centipedes are aggressive creatures in Darkwood. They ambush the player by burrowing themselves into holes that normally contain loot around the Swamp, emerging if the player approaches.

The Centipede has a twisted, humanoid appearance. It appears to be a large, centipede or earwig-like creature burrowing inside a human body. the tail protrudes from one of the shoulders and has hideous pincer at the end. Centipedes are very aggressive and have a variety of attacks, some of which can target the player from a long range. When a centpiede is killed, the creature inside the body appears to abandon its host and dig away to safety, while the human corpse is left behind.

Prior to Alpha 9.0 (+hotfix) Centipedes may sneak into the player's hideout during calm nights and could attack him during the Time Freeze. As such, players who use older versions of the Alpha should remain alert for a distinctive growling sound, and avoid trading with The Three before clearing out all possible threats.

Attacks Edit

  • The Centipede attacks with its claw.
  • The Centipede burrows underground and does a very fast dash toward the player, coming out of the ground right below them and dealing damage.
  • The Centipede pushes its appendages into the ground, ravaging the area around itself. On impact, this inflicts a unique Status Effect effect, reversing controls.
  • The Centipede buries itself under the ground, often after taking ranged damage, and attempts to disorient the player by digging its way out somewhere else.
