Nom Parasites grow on some of the trees on Stygia. They are large pulsating, yellow pods with a small, toothy, circlular mouth that can be leashed and kicked onto the heads of enemies to incapacitate them for a few seconds. Killing enemies in various ways with parasites attached to their heads will yield different skillshots:
- Shooting an enemy in the head after attaching a parasite to their head will net you the Leak skillshot.
- Decapitating an enemy after attaching a parasite to their head will get you the Heads Up skillshot.
- Impaling an enemy on some rebar or cacti after attaching a parasite to their head will get you the Scarecrow skillshot.
- Throwing an enemy into an electrical source after attaching a parasite to their head will earn you the Halloween skillshot.
All Nom Parasite related skillshots-Halloween, Nominated, Scarecrow, Heads Up, Leak- can be achieved at the area just after leaving the burnout feeding ground(the place with the second muta-burnout). Note that you have to bring a flailgun (or shotgun) for the Heads Up skillshot.
