      The WA for the Follower Torch is one of the best weapons on these guys in the basement of the chapel, because the flame AoE can stop multiple enemies flying approaching you at once, and can kill them in 1-2 hits even without any upgrading. Not to mention just holding the torch negates the maggot bleed build up.

        The first couple of times I encountered these bugs I killed them quickly and that was that. The part where I fell into the pit with about 20-30 of them gave me nightmares for two days.

          Some tips on killing these please, I went to the chamber with lots of them and the whole swarm comes flying at me if I kill just 1 of them. They are easy enough to kill but they do that sting attack which deals a lot of damage as well as putting nematodes that cause INSANE bleeding. I couldn't rapport them, but they did get lured by the Skull (although it lasts for very short while). Are they weak to anything? like fire could make those dogs immobile?

            Most disturbing, yet well-designed enemy in the DLC imo. Their fly-like movements are perfectly done, and their creepy semi-human nature makes them so much worse than just large insects would be. Combine that with the vastly unsettling places you encounter them, and this is an enemy to really make your skin crawl.
