Poison measured in health loss per turn. Sorted by poison.

The Skunk is an animal weapon which bounces around the terrain when released. When activated by the player, the Skunk will release a wind influenced cloud of toxic gas which will poison any worms that come into contact with it. Poisoned worms lose health between every turn. The Skunk will automatically detonate after a short while but can be manually detonated by the player.

Trivia & detail

  • When the Skunk releases the gas it gains speed due to propulsion. This is easy to notice by releasing the skunk in mid air after a backflip and then hitting space to release the gas. This may seem a funny trivial fact, but knowing this detail may make difference in a game, since the skunk may reach some slopes exploring this knowledge and help in the accuracy when hitting enemy worms by the cloud.
  • The poison damage from skunks stacks with itself. For example, if a worm is sprayed by a Skunk with 3 power, and later again by another separate Skunk with 3 power, it will take 10 damage per turn instead of 5.


  • The Skunk can be used to collect crates.
