Single cell of infection. Has a simple mind and can float using internal gasses.
The infection creeping through the Kingdom's dead veins... does it have a mind? Does it produce soul? Is it truly alive?
Behaviour and Tactics
Spawn out of thin air, often catching the player off-guard. They float towards the Knight, dealing contact damage.
It is recommended to take them out first when fighting multiple enemies, as they can provide a nuisance while attempting to dodge other attacks.
They regularly spawn during the Broken Vessel and Lost Kin boss fights, making healing very difficult. Defender's Crest or Spore Shroom are viable choices for these battles to deal with the Infected Balloons as soon as they get in range.
Two or three Infected Balloons can be summoned by Winged Nosk during its Summoning Screech attack. It is the easiest to kill these immediately as they appear before they have time to get in the way.
|Killing Infected Balloons summoned by Broken Vessel, Lost Kin, or Winged Nosk does not contribute to the numbers required for Hunter's Journal entry.|
Dream Nail Dialogue
The Infected Balloons can be found in many locations throughout the west part of the Ancient Basin.
