Useful Info

Deathcaps are essentially an undead form of wandering mushroom. They can drain life from you and your allies from anywhere within its LOS. They do not occur naturally, and can only be encountered if summoned by a curse toe's Summon Mushrooms.

Tips & Tricks

  • The main threat of deathcaps is the curse toe itself, who'll torment you. A deathcap's attacks can finish off players who've been tormented to low HP. The amount of mushrooms can make it hard to move, and their confusion-branded melee can make it harder to fight the toe.


  • Deathcaps were added in 0.13.
