Useful Info

Dart slugs are a common nuisance for the first few Dungeon levels. They have reasonably damaging ranged attack and can cling to walls, which allows them to cross obstacles like water or lava, but are otherwise fairly unremarkable.

Tips & Tricks

  • They'll constantly shoot at you as long as you are in their LOS, so crush them quickly. They are quite fragile, at least, so killing them isn't difficult.
  • As with any monster with ranged attacks, ducking around a corner and waiting for them to come to you will reduce the amount of damage you take.


  • Dart slugs came into life in version 0.18.
