The Carrion Eaters are worm-like scavengers found in the Warrens, commonly accompanying the Swinefolk that now inhabit the place and devouring scraps left from their messy eating habits. Some of the Swinefolk have learned to cooperate with them - commonly, Swine Drummers can be seen leading a pack of Carrion Eaters, directing their movements by marking their next meal for them. Sometimes, a larger, mutated version of these creatures can be found in the area, thought to have mutated this way from feasting on the corpses of the Swinefolk.

With the Crimson Court DLC installed, Carrion Eaters have also made a home for themselves in the Courtyard. Unlike the Bloodsuckers found there, they are incapable of transmitting the Crimson Curse.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Carrion Eater is a Beast type enemy that appears in the Warrens and the Courtyard. On their own, they aren't particularly threatening, with their only attack being fairly weak and inaccurate (although it has a high chance of inflicting a small Blight effect if it hits). However, their power increases significantly if they have an ally who can Mark your heroes.
