Engorged Zombie is an Enemy in Dark Souls.
Engorged Zombies are Hollows with tumorous toxic growths in place of heads. They use fire-based attacks and can be deadly if not dealt with swiftly. If not killed with a fire or chaos-buffed weapon, they release a cloud of toxin upon death that will drain the player's health over a short amount of time.
- Toxin Spew
- Torch Swing
- Toxin Spew (upon death)
- They can shoot fire at long range and close range, they also spew toxin when you are near them, and when they die they splatter toxin on the player if he/she is too close to the area that the hollow died so be careful of killing them head-on with a short reach weapon. They do not have much health, and have no means of blocking damage, so are best to just be dealt with and get them out of the way, as they can become a nuisance otherwise. A few hits with anything will just about do the trick, but long reach weapons work best. Back-stabbing is also a very good idea because the poison does not spew out until they finish their death animation giving the player ample time to retreat. I have found they are easily killed by lightning spears, gives the reach and extra damage, such as the Dragonslayer Spear.
- Fire weapons prevent these enemies from releasing their toxin when you kill them.
- The 'fire' they shoot is actually a magic-based attack, so a shield with high magic resistance is recommended.
