Infected Workers are enemies added in v2.0, the Barrels o' Fun Update. They are unique to the Derelict Distillery. They are big hulking humanoid enemies carrying a scaffold with barrels.

Behavior[]

When the Infected Worker detects the player at a distance, they will throw a barrel at them. If the player is too close, they will lay down a barrel and jump back.

Moveset[]

Barrel throw

  • Description: Tosses an explosive bouncing barrel overhead.
  • Barrel can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.
    • The explosion can be blocked or parried, but not dodge rolled.
  • Hitting the barrel will knock it back and deal damage to enemies while preventing self-damage.

Drop barrel

  • Description: Lays an explosive barrel in front of them, then quickly jumps back. The barrel will explode after a delay.
  • Barrel explosion can be blocked or parried, but not dodge rolled.
  • Hitting the barrel will knock it back and deal damage to enemies while preventing self-damage.
  • Despite seeming like an "overhead" vertical attack, this move can be parried. However, it will still leave an enemy barrel on the ground as a follow-up, so after a successful parry the player must still either attack the barrel, or get out of the explosion range.

Strategy[]

  • Thrown barrels can easily be dodged by rolling under them. They can also be re-reflected by hitting the barrels back at them.
  • The second attack has a long animation giving you plenty of time to get out of explosion radius.

Notes[]

  • The barrels they throw can destroy damaged walls. This can be used to obtain one of the achievements related to the Derelict Distillery.
