The perfect strategy to take out Deathsquitos in Valheim

The plain biome of Valheim harnesses one of the most dangerous mobs in Deathsquitos. They can sneak up from behind without making much noise, and they can take out players with just a few hits. These critters harness powers that can even take out players with bronze and silver armors easily.

The good news is that these creatures have a few critical weaknesses that can be easily exploited if you can understand their movement and attack patterns.

These creatures walk in a straight line and they move in a distinct manner, and once spotted, they will hover right next to you for 5 seconds. If they lunge towards you at max speed, you can just turn around and jump over its head.

Do not try to parry them with a shield, as they are too quick for you to touch. Instead, try to use bows, spears, swords, and attack them once they make a beeline towards you.

Another way to take them out is by running in the opposite direction. They will try to catch up to you and will slow down after a while, giving you an opportune moment to strike.

So there you have it, two effective methods that will allow you to take out these annoying critters and continue on your journey. The developers have also added a significant nerf to Deathsquito by enhancing the audio segment.

Players will now be able to spot them from a safer distance, which will give you sufficient time to mount a counter-attack. If you lack the proper equipment, then always keep your distance and run away from these mobs when you spot them.
