Special Weapon Effects

Turn on, tune in, drop out. – Always corrosive. Creates a mushroom that explodes into a corrosive cloud after some time, throwing out child grenades that explode on impact.

Usage & Description

The Fungus Among Us is a sticky grenade that has a long fuse time. This makes it less effective against fast-moving targets. Sticking the grenade to melee enemies that charge at the character will often put the character within the blast radius of the grenade due to the long fuse time. However, against larger or slower moving targets, multiple grenades can be stacked up easily. Otherwise, standard sticky grenade tactics apply.



  • The flavor text is a phrase popularized by Timothy Leary (an outspoken proponent of psychedelic drugs such as mushrooms) at the Human Be-In event in 1967.
  • The name and special effect are a reference to Miko from Battleborn and its ultimate ability of the same name.
    • The grenade mod also shares the same name of a 2005 album by the American rock band Incubus.
