Watergrubs are water-loaded mimics with a similar appearance to Blowgrubs and Firegrubs. They are capable of extinguishing fires on contact and self-destruct upon contact with a solid surface. The knockback they sustain from attacks is substantially farther than with Blowgrubs. These Mimics like the Embermite spawn infinitely, except they spawn from little pools of water. They are one of the two "puzzle" mimics released with Hatchwood Wilds, the other being the Embermite.


Tips & AttacksEdit

Attacking a Watergrub is a way to redirect a Watergrub towards a nearby target. You'll need a clear horizontal path from the Watergrub to the target for this to work.

As the Watergrub will follow you, it can be frustrating to have it on the other side than intended. A simple trick is to stand on the ground, facing the direction you want the Watergrub to be and then duck. Then WAIT until it has gone over you and you can hit it towards the fire.

If a Watergrub hits a sloped angle at a certain point, it will bounce back at the player.

Killing a Watergrub is utterly pointless. They have no item drops and no trophy or exp. However if you wish to kill one, there are two ways to do so. The first is to attack it from the bottom or top, preventing it from flying sideways. The second is to get it very near a wall and then attack it. It will not travel into the wall fast enough to make it detonate, so one could continue to attack it.


Shooting a Watergrub from underneath is the easiest way to defeat one. While there are some spots where the Watergrub may hit a bug and stick to the wall, be careful to stay away from it. If you get too close while it's in a wall, the game will correct itself and destroy the Watergrub. If you find that one is stuck in a wall, you can shoot it from afar if you want to kill it manually.


Hitting a Watergrub will make it bounce back and explode on contact with a solid object, killing a watergrub is difficult because after you hit it, it'll shoot back and explode.


Watergrubs can be killed by performing a downward attack while in midair. It will not fly away like it would from a normal attack.
