Poison Mosquitos are a new hostile Mob type in the Shipwrecked DLC.

It is a yellow-coloured version of the normal Mosquito, and its attacks Poison the target.

Currently Poison Mosquitos spawn either in Monsoon Season from Flooded tiles or via a bad outcome of the Slot Machine.

They have a 50% chance to drop a Yellow Mosquito Sack, and can also be caught with a Bug Net.

Spear Fighting Strategy Edit
