Bile Spitter

The Bile Spitter is a small Terminid that can be found on Easy difficulty and higher. They appear to be juvenile Bile Spewers.

They usually appear in swarms of other Bile Spitters, Scavengers, and Pouncers.


  • Bile Spitters will attempt to shoot a small ball of bile at Helldivers from short range. This bile will slow the Helldiver, and cause mild damage over time as the bile eats away at them.
  • Bile Spitters will approach Helldivers in as direct a path as possible, climbing over terrain and obstacles in an attempt to get in range for their bile attack.
  • Bile Spitters are able to release a cloud of pheromones into the air that causes a Bug Breach.


  • Due to their low health, Bile Spitters can easily be dispatched by any weapon. Using the Guard Dog or explosives is effective against swarms of Bile Spitters.
  • Bile Spitters will rupture and explode when killed, dealing mild damage to nearby creatures. As such, prefer killing them from range if possible.
  • If you get hit by a Bile Spitter's projectile attack, dive! This will immediately clear the slowing effect.
  • Killing a Bile Spitter near other Spitters can sometimes cause a chain reaction of Bile Spitter explosions.
