Red Chompers are dangerous, aggressive creatures in Darkwood.
They appear to be people that have gone through the final stage of the Plague: their head has torn into two all the way down to the chest, forming a large mouth filled with teeth.
Normal variants can be found in a few preset locations in the Silent Forest and commonly roam the Old Woods. They also commonly appear throughout The Swamp. They have a high chance of spawning near hideout 3 during the night phase to assault the player.
They are very dangerous and attack on sight. Red Chompers are the weaker version of the Black Chompers.
There are three notable variants of the Red Chomper.
A Small Red Chomper is encountered in the Village Well. This unique Red Chomper drops the Small, Burned Plastic Doll, an item which resembles the Small, Plastic Doll, but is scarred from fire and misses an eye. The Small Red Chomper is the child of Hanuska.
A unique Red Chomper can also be found at the Wedding. This variant wears a torn wedding dress and appears to be the bride. It is the only Red Chomper found in the Dry Meadow, and likely the first Red Chomper the player will face.
Antek is a Red Chomper with backstory encountered in The Village, which the Village Leader uses to threaten the player and presumably the other villagers. If the player kills The Sow in the Pig Shed, they are invited into the mayor's house in the village, where Antek is set loose upon them as revenge. Breaking into the mayor's house by force will also result in Antek's release. In-game, he appears as a normal Red Chomper. The only unique thing about him is that he is on a chain.
There are also the Musician's parents, the Half-Dead Man and the Half-Dead Woman, who turn into Red Chompers if a certain interaction isn't performed. It is unknown at the moment if they have regular Chomper models.
With some finesse, a chomper can be killed with just a plank with nails by walking backward and hitting it repeatedly with fully charged swings while evading its attacks at the same time.
Chompers run at 2 different speeds - a sprint (charge) and then a walk. If you can outrun them while they are sprinting, they will quickly tire and slow down for a while.
Chompers will try to dodge melee attacks when walking. They will not stop sprinting to dodge.
Axes and shotguns are particularly effective at taking down chompers.
Chompers can be lured or distracted by dropping meat onto the ground.
Confirmed weapon stats against Red Chompers (Alpha 7.0.) Edit
☀ It takes 2 shots to kill them with a Bolt Action Rifle (The first shot takes away 90% of Chompers health).
☀ It takes 3 shots to kill them with a Pistol.
- Chompers can be split in half with a melee weapon, revealing the lower half of the body, the legs, to be human, while the monstrous Chomper head is still trying to chase and attack the player, leaving a trail of blood behind, until it is killed.
- In the new Swamp biome, there are specific occasions where the player will encounter Red Chompers who are seemingly invulnerable. They are covered in a strange Black Substance which must be burned off with powerful light sources before damage can be done to the Chomper itself.
- Game files mention a test "Blue Chomper".
