The Husk is the only non-boss specimen with ranged attack. The Husk often starts attacking players even outside view distance, but slowly closes in to their position. From far away, it may resemble a Fleshpound due to its tall stature and yellow glow in its weapon/mask.
The Husk makes a distinct sound when attacking and the projectiles are easy to dodge, as long as there's room to do so. Husk's attacks deal fire damage and leave a burning effect on you, much like the Flamethrower does. The Husk is also immune to fire damage, and is tied to the Flaming Hell, That Was Close achievement.
