Once the Pugalisk has taken enough damage, it will start attacking by a ranged attack, freezing the player in place for 3-5 seconds.
if the Pugalisk continues its Range Freezing attack non-stop this means it has entered Defense mode and will try to stop the player from getting close.
- Drinking Coffee, Tea, using a Stalking Stick or a Walking Cane are ways to have an advantage over the Pugalisk, as its Freezing Attack has a Range.
- Pugalisk will stop the Freezing Range Attack if the players moves too far.
- It is not advised to tank the Pugalisk as his head does 150 Damage.
- Standing next to the fountain will cause Pugalisk to start circling it. This allows the player to keep Pugalisk at bay if done correctly until it starts using its ranged attack.
- Explosives can kill Pugalisk instantly. Easiest way to do it is to equip a Coconade, light it with a torch then throw it near the opened skin.
- The Pugalisk is a portmanteau of a pug and a basilisk.
- The Pugalisk's ranged attack may be referencing the purported ability of a basilisk to kill or petrify victims by looking at them.
- Its name may also be a reference to the word pugilist, meaning "fighter."
- Sometimes the Pugalisk will taunt the player after killing them, by sticking its tongue out and hissing.
- AoE attacks will cause the Pugalisk much more damage.
- The Pugalisk drops the highest amount of Monster Meat out of all the Mobs, even more so than the Varg.
