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

A Putrid Scent has a 1 in 5 (20%) chance to drop from a Corrupt Mimic, which is found in the Underground Corruption.

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 and the tank equips the Turtle armor, Beetle armor, or Solar Flare armor, enemies are much more likely to target the tank, greatly increasing the survivability of the other player.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Putrid Scent is the Corruption counterpart to The Crimson's Flesh Knuckles, since it increases damage dealt and decreases odds of being targeted, while the Flesh Knuckles decrease damage received and increase the odds of being targeted.
