Hunter Long Legs is a rare creature in the Downpour DLC, which spawns under specific requirements exclusively while playing as Gourmand head.png Gourmand.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Hunter Long Legs takes the appearance of the corpse of the Hunter head.png Hunter overtaken by a mass of flesh-colored tendrils, similar to the Rot (Brother Long Legs icon.png Brother Long LegsDaddy Long Legs icon.png Daddy Long LegsMother Long Legs icon.png Mother Long Legs). There also appears to be a wound in the core of the Hunter Long Legs. Individual instances of Hunter Long Legs have varying appearances which depend on internal variables. Due to this, the appearance of Hunter Long Legs varies from cycle to cycle.

Spawning[edit | edit source]

Hunter Long Legs spawns only when playing as Gourmand head.png Gourmand. An appearance of the Hunter Long Legs is only triggered if the player has failed a Hunter head.png Hunter playthrough on the same save slot. The Hunter Long Legs appears in whatever room the Hunter playthrough was failed in. This is similar to how Karma Flower icon.png Karma Flowers appear in Survivor head.png Survivor and Monk head.png Monk's campaigns.

However, if the Hunter playthrough was failed via starvation, the Hunter Long Legs does not spawn in Gourmand's save file.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Combat[edit | edit source]

Due to their ability to see and not possessing the same one hit kill weakness by an Explosive Spear icon.png Explosive Spear to the core as other rots it poses a feasible challenge to subdue this creature. It's recommended to stay a safe distance from them in order to not get seen by while hitting them. It's important to note that while the Gourmand head.png Gourmand does 3 damage with their first Spear throw, this is reduced to 0.3 damage until they regain their breath.

Stealth[edit | edit source]

Hunter Long Legs possessing sight makes them more difficult to sneak past than other mobile rot cysts, but as long as the player stays out of their line of sight and keeps low to the ground, they shouldn't get alerted.

Evasion[edit | edit source]

Hunter Long Legs isn't fast enough and can slowly be outpaced by the walking speed of a Slugcat head.png Slugcat, although in circumstances the Hunter Long Leg might be blocking a path or a pipe that is necessary for progression, try to lure them far enough and find a tunnel that connects to the other side from a safe distance away from them, or find a higher elevated platform to jump over them.

Abilities & Behavior[edit | edit source]

Hunter Long Legs have a similar behavior to most Rot cysts; track prey down when given the opportunity and consume accordingly.

Sight[edit | edit source]

Curiously, unlike any other Rot cysts, Hunter Long Legs has the ability of sight, making them a much bigger threat then the aforementioned cysts, on top of the inherited hearing that most of them share.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Judging from Five Pebbles (character) icon.png Five Pebbles's dialogue it can be assumed this is what happens after the Hunter head.png Hunter succumbs to their illness, which is implied to be the Daddy Long Legs icon.png Rot.
  • The Hunter Long Legs is one of 4 creatures added in Downpour to not have an arena unlock. The others are the Train Lizard icon.png Train Lizard, the Chieftain Scavenger icon.png Chieftain Scavenger, and the Stowaway icon.png Stowaway.
  • In Five Pebbles (character) icon.png Five Pebbles's chamber, they spawn in the middle of the floor. This prevents Gourmand from speaking to Five Pebbles as they either fall directly onto them or they hear them land.
  • If spawned in Looks to the Moon (character) icon.png Looks to the Moon's chamber, the default CheckStrayCreature dialogue occurs. Hunter Long Legs is the only Rot creature that does not share the Rot joke dialogue.
  • While the Hunter Long Legs is exclusive to Gourmand head.png Gourmand, if spawned in through use of mods, Hunter head.png Hunter, Artificer head.png Artificer, and Spearmaster head.png Spearmaster can still eat them.
