- —In-game description.
Thorntail is an enemy type appearing in Shadow Warrior 2.
Thorntail is a heavily mutated flea that came into contact with black rain. They attack by burrowing under the ground and then popping out to try to catch Lo Wang off guard. At range they attack by spitting out fireballs and have a fast rolling attack. They attack in groups and usually accompany Champions.
There is a champion version of this enemy - The Sharpest Spike, which player may meet during story mission Hot Blooded.
Thorntail has four legs, a pale outer shale and tail. They possess four eyes and their mouth area is heavily disfigured.
The best way to weaken Thorntail is to attack its legs. Also, dodging their rolling attack will make them open for an counter-attack.
