The Rot Eater is an elite enemy in Arknights.

Enemy description
Part of the Nachzehrer army. The longer they remain in the battlefield, the harder they are to defeat, absorbing the enemy's strength as they grow increasingly deadly.

Overview

A formidable Nachzehrer warrior drawing their strength from their fallen comrades who are initially found in a hibernating state within "Twigs That Crave" and will awoke when it is destroyed or only them who remained, Rot Eaters do not count towards the enemy counter and are usually not spawned like normal enemies; they will spawn from a Twigs That Crave when one is destroyed or still intact after all other enemies are defeated.

Rot Eaters boast a terrifyingly high HP, ATK, and DEF that is almost comparable to bosses, but will be reduced depending on the amount of defeated enemies at the time they are spawned, which cannot fall below 20% and exceed 80%. For example, if a Twigs spawn on an operation with 114 enemies:

  • Destroying the Twigs when at most 22 enemies have been defeated causes it to spawn a Rot Eater with 20% HP, ATK, and DEF.
  • Destroying the Twigs when 23 to 91 enemies have been defeated causes it to spawn a Rot Eater with 21% ~ 79% HP, ATK, and DEF.
    • The exact formula to calculate this is (n ÷ c) × 100, where n represents the amount of defeated enemies and c represents the total amount of enemies.
  • Destroying the Twigs when at least 92 enemies have been defeated causes it to spawn a Rot Eater with 80% HP, ATK, and DEF.

If the Rot Eater is spawned by keeping the Twigs intact until all other enemies are defeated however, their stats will not be reduced at all! As such, it is imperative to get rid of Twigs as early on as possible before Rot Eaters can gather more power.

Rot Eaters also continuously expels Corruption over a radius of 1.1 tiles around them.
