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

Behavior[ | ]

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

  • Spawns 2 Attack FlyAttack Flies that orbit loosely around him, blocking shots, as well as a SpiderSpider.
    • 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 he spawns more flies and spiders when just under the limit.
  • Fires a spray of projectiles, similar to Boss Monstro ingameMonstro, but with fewer projectiles.
  • Fires blood shots in 8 directions and spreads the flies orbiting him outwards, freeing them to chase Isaac.
    • Unlike the Duke, 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.
    • (in Repentance) Spawns a 6-8 random FlyFlies, Attack Flies, and PooterPooters upon death.
