Infested Shipwreck flag

The Infested Shipwreck is a sixth level biome exclusive to the Queen and the Sea DLC. It is a hulk of abandoned ships crashed at the base of the lighthouse. The ships are filled with spikes and platforms of rotting wood which can be destroyed by enemies, causing potentially very precarious paths through the cramped ships, much like the Corrupted Prison, the ships are extremely infected with the Malaise.

  • "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh staphy dobor wgah'nagl fhtagn" is a reference to Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" translating to: "In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming".
  • Interestingly, The Infested Shipwreck contains no respawning lore rooms, as its only lore room contains the Abyssal Trident IconAbyssal Trident, which does not reveal any information and does not reappear after acquiring the weapon. Due to this, the only information on this biome comes from the lore room in Stilt Village, where the player obtains the Crowned KeyCrowned Key.
