Feral Bite is a debuff that may be inflicted when a player is hit by a bat (10% chance) or Duke Fishron (33% chance) in Expert mode. It increases player damage by 20%, but lowers player health regeneration and may randomly inflict Darkness, Cursed, Confused, Slow, Weak, or Silenced debuffs.

Debuffs[edit | edit source]

When the player is afflicted with Feral Bite, there is a 1/1200 chance per frame for one of six debuffs to inflict the player. When the game is running at the target 60 frames per second, the effective chance is 1/20 every second (approximately 1-20 seconds).

Debuff Duration Chance
Darkness Darkness 1.8-3 seconds 1/6 (16.7%)
Cursed Cursed 0.45-0.75 seconds 1/6 (16.7%)
Confused Confused 0.9-1.5 seconds 1/6 (16.7%)
Slow Slow 2.1-3.5 seconds 1/6 (16.7%)
Weak Weak 3-5 seconds 1/6 (16.7%)
Silenced Silenced 0.6-1 seconds 1/6 (16.7%)

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • While at the first look seeming like a rather weak debuff, the randomly occurring debuffs can cause major damage to a player. The Confused and Weak debuffs can easily catch players on the wrong foot, especially when they are not aware of being under the influence of Feral Bite.
  • Having an Ankh Charm or Ankh Shield eliminates all the debuffs (which technically makes this a pseudo buff like the Tipsy effect).

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Internally, Feral Bite is named "Rabies", a real disease which affects animals and humans.
