The Cold Virus is an abstract enemy in CrossWorlds. It can be encountered in Vermillion Wasteland, Vermillion Dungeon and Vermillion Tower.

Cold Virus

A version of the Neutral Virus that uses Cold based attacks. It uses the neutral Viruses as pawns to attack its enemies. However this is also its weak spot. Once the neutral ones are stunned, push them into the Cold Virus to break their shield.

Appearance[ | ]

The Cold Virus resembles a real life bacteriophage. It has a light-blue prism for a head that's supported by a stem and four two-jointed legs, and while it looks similar to the Neutral Virus, it is slightly larger in size.

Combat[ | ]

Cold Viruses are mostly invincible and don't attack by themselves, instead, they empower Neutral Viruses with Cold. After it has empowered one, the Neutral Virus will walk towards the player and summon a ring of icicles around itself. The player then can use any Heat attack on the Neutral Virus to turn it into a floating anti-virus that can be pushed into the Cold Virus to break it and deactivate its shield.

If there are less than two Neutral Viruses in the fight, the Cold Virus can spawn two more that will also be destroyed after its spawner is defeated.

Strategies[ | ]

Destroy all Neutral Viruses except for 2 so the Cold Virus won't summon more and extend the battle. If broken, destroy it as fast as possible.
