The Putrid Scent is a Hardmode accessory. When equipped, it will increase damage and critical strike chance by 5%, as well as decrease aggro.

It has a 20*1/5 (20%) chance to drop from Corrupt Mimics, which can be found in the Underground Corruption or summoned by putting the Key of Night in a chest in a Corrupt world.

It is unrelated to the Stinky debuff.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • This accessory proves exceptionally useful in multiplayer with a "tank" player and a player who focuses on DPS. If the DPS equips the Putrid Scent or its upgrades along with Shroomite or Vortex armor while the tank equips Turtle armor, Beetle armor, or Solar Flare armor, enemies will be much, much more likely to target the tank, greatly increasing the survivability of the other player. If the Flesh Knuckles and its upgrades are available, they can further concentrate fire on the tank, but this requires access to a world with the Crimson.
