The Beast of Nurgle's main weakness is a yellow blister on its back, so you should always try to target it when you have a chance. One team member should be kiting it away while the rest of the squad focuses its fire on it.

  • Like all the other Special enemies, the Beast of Nurgle will try to single out one of your team members and attack them.
  • Once in range, it will start spewing green bile to slow them down. The bile does not damage the players but will act as a bog, limiting their movement speed.
  • If the player gets in the Beast of Nurgle's melee range, there is a chance that it will try to eat them. Once inside its belly, the player will steadily lose health and gain corruption, limiting their Wound count. If the player's health gets depleted, they will be captured.
  • If the player approaches the Beast of Nurgle from behind, they might get pushed away by their prehensile tail.
