Insect Phobia Warning
Infestations appear as a small, ground-based swarm of beetles that slowly approach the player. They do not need line of sight to target a player, and will climb on walls and ceilings to approach them, emitting a loud crawling sound as they move.
The player can slowly get rid of the on-screen bugs by jumping, sneaking, swinging, or shaking their head. They can also get rid of them faster by completely submerging themselves in a liquid or setting themselves on fire.
The infestation swarm itself will also shrink the longer it is submerged in a liquid. Infestations are also very weak to fire.
When the swarm is hit by a high damage attack, it has a chance of splitting into 4 smaller swarms, each with the same amount of health the swarm had left after the attack. Smaller swarms have less range and apply their effect slower. These swarms can recombine, though they do not regain health when doing this. These split swarms can spread out far from the original infestation, so it is advised to stand back when attacking.
