Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

The Husk is a boss that can appear in Catacombs Catacombs.


Moves around the room like The Duke of Flies, but much faster and can perform the following attacks:

  • Spawns 2 Attack Flies that orbit loosely around it, blocking shots as well as a Spider.
    • These flies like the ones spawned by The Duke of Flies can be killed if Isaac walks into them.
    • The Husk will not use this attack if there are 8 flies and spiders total spawned but can exceed the 8 limit if it spawns more flies and spiders when just under the limit.
  • Fires spray of projectiles, similar to Monstro, but with fewer projectiles.
  • Fires blood shots in 8 directions and spreads the flies orbiting it outwards, freeing them to chase Isaac.
    • Unlike the Duke of Flies, the Husk can perform this attack at any time without any required amount of orbiting Attack Flies.
  • Upon death, all orbiting flies will be free to chase Isaac.
    • Added in Repentance Spawns a 6-8 random Flies, Attack Flies and Pooters upon death.
