Swamp Things are a Hard Mode enemy that spawn as part of the Solar Eclipse event. Their AI is similar to zombies; they have no ranged attacks and simply walk up to the player to damage them.

Swamp Things are much faster than zombies and have considerably more health, which makes them a much more formidable enemy. It is common for them to come at the player in groups of 2-4, so having a penetrating weapon such as a Paladin's Hammer or any Spear is very useful. Some say that the Piranha Gun is also very effective against these. The Swamp Thing will also stalk the player briefly before attacking.


  • Swamp Thing is a reference to the DC Comics character with the same name.
  • When damaged, it appears to bleed greenish-grey blood as opposed to the red blood most fleshy creatures have.


  • On the console version, when killed, their remains change to that of a zombie's.
