A Necrophage in Caustic Caverns

The Necrophage is a plant commonly found within the Caustic Caverns and Friendship Gulag. The plant has a green, cactus-like appearance, and when damaged it releases four green, caustic projectiles that home in on and damage anyone in their vicinity. This pod with homing projectiles regrows after about 3 minutes.

In Normal Mode, projectiles can inflict substantial damage to or even kill lesser enemies. Damage inflicted is considerably reduced in True Vault Hunter Mode while in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode it is practically negligible.


  • The Necrophage name is derived from two Greek prefixes, "necro" meaning corpse and "phage," meaning eater, hence detailing the foliage's devastating caustic properties.
  • Like all interactive plants in Borderlands 2, the Necrophage does not register as an enemy, though it can damage Vault Hunters.
