The Scuttler is an enemy in The Consuming Shadow.
Tips for fighting Edit
- With good timing, a Scuttler can be hit out of the air as it jumps at the player for an instant kill.
- Be wary of Scuttlers walking on the ceiling.
In-game description Edit
The Scuttler seems to be a wingless larval form of the Buzzer (q.v.) life cycle. It can scuttle at high speed and jump with the power of a flea. They seem to be born with the instinct to hurl themselves at potential enemies of the swarm, but their soft, juvenile bodies are extremely brittle, and they will do far more damage to themselves than their 'victim'.
If the player character dies against it, their Logbook entry will begin with, "Worn down to the point that a single Scuttler could finish them off".
