Drops On Death

The Hound or Crawler (actual name Hurtta) is a doglike creature often found in the mines and below. Its presence can be a nuisance, but can be deadly when the player is low on health. Their eyes shine in the dark, revealing their presence even in unexplored territory.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Hounds are generally found alone, and do not travel in packs. They will often wander around aimlessly, looking for potential prey. They can leap up a good distance to get to higher platforms.
They attack by leaping towards their prey, dealing damage on contact. This deals a far amount of knockback to the player.
Occasionally, they can be found eating the corpse of any dead creature.
Combat Tips[edit | edit source]
- A fairly basic enemy. Keep your distance and keep above them, and their mediocre health pool should diminish quickly.
- Don't get too comfortable, as their attack has a fairly short cooldown, and they may bump the player towards less favorable enemies.
- The lunge of their attack will often land them very close to the player, increasing the chance for quick follow up attacks if not dealt with.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
The name Heikkohurtta is made up of two Finnish words, heikko and hurtta. Heiko is finnish for weak and hurtta is finnish for hound. The names thus mean 'weak hound', and 'hound' respectively.
