Maggots are the first ranged enemy the player encounters in Castle Hammerwatch. They are universally ranged, with slow movement speed. They pause before firing a slow-moving spit projectile at the player which, if it makes contact, may induce poison. They are tougher than ticks by a fair margin, but only cause as much damage as bats.
- Small maggots are the weakest maggot type. They are a very pale brown and shoot non-poisonous white projectiles.
- Normal maggots are larger and yellow in color and have more health than small maggots. Not only do they do more damage than the small maggots,they also fire one projectile before moving again. Their green projectile poisons the players, dealing constant damage reducing their speed and damage for a few seconds.
- Elite maggots are a darker yellow than normal maggots and have purple-red horns on their backs.. They fire multiple spreading poisonous projectiles at once before returning to moving. They fire two projectiles on Easier, three on Medium and five on Hard difficulty. Although their projectiles deal the same damage as the normal maggots, they have much more health.
