Rotfish are slow to medium speed minor monsters that act as a nuisance in bodies of water, most notably in e2m3 and e4m4. They are not renowned as a meaningful threat and will simply consume a negligent amount of shells to dispose of. Rotfish are erroneously counted twice when assessing the monster population of a level, but only give credit for one kill, resulting in an imperfect Kill score at the level's end if they are present. In rare circumstances a Rotfish's head can be found incorrectly rendered.

Tactics

If Rotfishes are even a concern, let them get moderately close and kill them with a shot from the Double-Barrelled Shotgun, that will take care of them most likely.
