Cold Blooded Guardians are snake-like enemies found in the Fractured Shrines and Undying Shores. They are exclusive to the Fatal Falls DLC.


When they spot the player, these enemies can move quickly towards them. At close range they will use their tail and poisoned claws for melee attack, while at long range they throw a javelin which they will teleport to when it lands if the player is on the same platform as the javelin.


Tail swipe

  • Description: At close range will swipe their tail at the player.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.
  • Can be jumped over.

Poisoned claws

  • Description: At close range will attack twice with it claws and will poison the player for a short amount of time.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.

Spear throw

  • Description: Lifts spear and aims before throwing it at the player. Can throw to lower or higher levels if in line of sight. After a few seconds will teleport towards the spear.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.
  • Can be jumped over or ducked under.


Close range attacks work fine, though pay attention to their melee attack and dodge/parry to avoid getting hit.

At longer range wait until they throw their spear and move away before it lands. You can prepare a trap at the spear for when they teleport towards it.


  • The spear they use has the same ability as the War Javelin Icon.png War Javelin.
  • The enemy is possibly a hybrid between a snake and a cultist due to its garb when compared to the Cultist Outfit.
    • Its name probably derives from how snakes are ectotherms. Furthermore, it drops reptile-relevant blueprints.
