stat sap

It sheaths itself in filmy wings and brandishes a tissue-boring proboscis.


A stat sap is a winged mammal whose bite can permanently drain a specific attribute. The attribute that a sap drains is determined upon generation and is reflected in its name. (See section Sap Types for a complete listing.)

All stat saps that generate in the same zone will be of the same type, and thus drain the same attribute. (However, this doesn't mean that zones in the same relative place on different playthroughs will always generate the same type of sap.)

The stat sap's \bite always generates with the homing mod, meaning it ignores ○DV when determining whether it hits. The bite does no damage on its own, but if it penetrates at least once, its target permanently loses 1–2 points in the sap's associated attribute.[1] As a Short Blade, the bite also causes bleeding on a critical hit.

Technical Information

A stat sap determines its variety by using the ZoneID of the zone it spawns in with a seeded random function[1]. This is what causes all stat saps spawning in the same zone to affect the same attribute.


This section is opinion-based. Your mileage may vary.
  • Besides their extremely punishing bite, stat saps are otherwise unextraordinary and easily dealt with. Take them out at a range with a gun or the like before they can close into melee range.
  • Becoming friendly with the winged mammal faction will stop stat saps from attacking you, eliminating the tremendous danger they can pose to your character.


  • Stat saps are one of only a few types of creatures that can permanently drain a creature's stats. The others are:
