Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

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


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

  • Spawns 2 Attack Fly Attack Flies that orbit loosely around it, blocking shots, as well as a Spider 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 is a total of 8 flies and spiders 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 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 Fly Flies, Attack Flies and Pooter Pooters upon death.
