The Zombie Eskimo is a zombie variant that only appears on the surface Snow biome at Night. It acts the same as normal zombies, slowly walking towards the player to deal contact damage, while attempting to navigate around obstacles and only being able to open doors during a Blood Moon. It is differentiated from other zombies in that it is dressed in light blue snow suit, which it can also drop in the form of the Eskimo Hood, Eskimo Coat, and Eskimo Pants armor pieces.
Like normal zombies, it has an Armed variation in Expert Mode, which can perform a "slashing" attack when close to the player to deal extra damage with increased range.
- Eskimos are the indigenous peoples who have traditionally inhabited the northern circumpolar region. In Canada and Greenland, the term "Eskimo" is predominately seen as pejorative and has been widely replaced by the term "Inuit", even though the Inuit are a distinctive group of aboriginal peoples in Canada.
