The body of a bug, completely consumed by infection. Spits corrosive liquid.

The infection that swept through Hallownest so long ago... they say that the harder you struggled against it, the more it consumed you.

Slobbering Husks are enemies in Hollow Knight. They are husks that were completely consumed by infection, overfilling with noxious corrosive liquid.[1][2]

Behaviour and Tactics

Despite physically resembling the Leaping Husk, these foes do not jump, instead, it will spit a cluster of corrosive blobs in an arc that lingers temporarily on the ground.

Its attack is predictable and easy to dodge. Avoid one spit and move in quickly for a kill, or attack with a ranged Spell or a Nail Art with a large area of effect, such as Dash Slash.

Location

Since the Leaping Husks in Forgotten Crossroads mostly become Slobbering Husks after the Infection spreads, their locations are similar.

Trivia

  • Unlike other Infected Crossroads enemies, Slobbering Husks do not explode upon death.
    • Its body will still glow orange upon death like all other exploding corpses, possibly suggesting that its ability to explode was originally intended but then later removed at some point.
