Ticks are creatures found in Appalachia in 2102.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

The tick resembles a standard deer tick. However it is ginormous in comparison to its non-mutated counterpart. They have 8 legs (4 on each side), and they are made of two distinct parts: the head and the abdomen. The abdomen is capable of swelling to enormous proportions after blood has been ingested.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Despite their small size, they can be relatively dangerous early in the game when encountered in groups. Ticks can be very difficult to see in certain environments, however they do emit a unique scatter-like sound when moving. Similarly to other smaller mutated insects, some ticks may hide in the soil or under structures, they will jump out when in close proximity to the player character.

Ticks are very fast for their size, and will easily catch up to the player character if seen, they use their claws to attack the player character, and when they successfully do this enough, their blood sacs will fill with blood. If the player character manages to kill the tick while in this state, their sacs will explode.

Diseased ticks also have a chance to give the parasites disease.
