While exploring the gutter I bumped into a giant ant that seems to constantly spit an harmless gas. You can lock it, so it seems an enemy, but it doesn't hit back on you if attacked. I tried to google about it but I wasn't satisfied by what I've read.

What's the purpose of this Ant? Is there a way to interact with it? Killing it would/would not trigger events?

If you kill it, you're able to walk into the room it was blocking to find a few Poison Moss.

It has no known significance otherwise. It's not possible to converse with it using the Ring of Whispers, either.

  • No NG+ use is known?

  • Not that I've ever heard. If something ever does get discovered, I would love for someone to post an answer to that effect to educate us.

  • The gas does little more than slightly increasing the rate at which you recover from the poison status effect.

Apparently according to this reddit post, it will puff out blue smoke which cures poison. I haven't been able to try this myself yet.


This is just a theory that I didn't test more than twice, but everytime I walked into the gas it spits out and out, the statues no longer shot poison at me.

It cures the poison status affect with the gas it spits out
