"melee attacks deal poison damage"

The Plague Mask is a Buyable Hat that costs 10,000 Gold.


  • If you hit anyone with a Melee Weapon while wearing this, they will be affected by Poison for 6 Sec. (formerly 5), dealing 5 damage every second on the player (for a total of 30). The counter for the poison effect is the Anti Venom Gear.
  • The Plague Mask costs 10000 Gold.



  • The Plague Mask is good for swift kills and even when the player who’s being attacked uses a Cookie (a type of food that heals 40 HP) to heal during the effect of the poison, the poison will still continue to affect the player.
  • Use the Polearm with this hat for a easy kill
  • Try to not use this hat when going against Anti Venom Gear wearers (no one wears it so its not likely)
  • This hat is highly effective against autohealers, as it wastes their food.
  • Note that it no longer does anything additional when Ruby Weapons are acquired, as Ruby deals its own poison damage and poison damage doesn't stack.



The plague mask was added in version 0.59.
