Maggots are worm-like creatures that burrow out from beneath the ground. Maggots are capable of spitting out various elemental attacks, depending on the type of maggot they are (i.e: Magma Maggot = fire attack, Venom Maggot = earth attack).

Maggots may emerge from anywhere on the island but are more prevalent in underground caverns.

Combat and Tactics[]

Maggots are not visible at first sight and will not burrow up until a player approaches them. When players are close enough, they will shoot out projectiles. If the player strays too far, the maggot will dig down again, avoiding further damage. Maggots will dig up again when the player is close to them again. Some maggots are vulnerable to elemental attacks. The weakness will differ depending on the type of maggot encountered.
