The Barrage Infector is a mutated variant of the Infector species. Preliminary research suggests it may represent the next step in the evolutionary chain -- perhaps even an attempt to mirror the dwarves' sturdy, short physiques. Its thick skin makes it more resistant to damage, and its enlarged venom sac allows the creature to spit out multi-shot salvos of volatile bile, turning its surroundings into an explosive killzone. Even the most seasoned miners should exercise extreme caution when taking it down.
— Miner's Manual Description

The Barrage Infector appears to be a bigger Spitball Infector. Similar to its smaller brethren, it is a hostile Creature found in any region of Hoxxes. It boasts an impressive size, resembling a large tree stump in its brown-green colors, and sporting a large mouth tinted in blue. the back of its "head" is adorned with a set of spikes while the bottom of its mouth hosts a large venom sac composed of glowing green bulbs.

This creature is rooted in one place and can only spawn at map creation. This means that any Barrage Infector encountered can only be discovered, and none will spawn once previous ones have been defeated. It possesses more health than Spitball Infectors, as well as a more dangerous attack, but they are rarer in compensation.

In combat, the Barrage Infector will swell up and swallow its vulnerable acid glands and release a flurry of several globs of acid. They deal low impact damage but quickly explode in an area, dealing damage. This attack has a moderate cooldown, and Barrage Infectors will become vulnerable for a few seconds after launching an Acid Barrage. Despite this, it can deny a large area and force a team to split up. It is especially dangerous in tight spaces where dodging the barrage may prove more difficult.
