The infected Depths is a truly spine-chilling environment, home to a vile Barnacle Infection that has transformed the biome and its wildlife, converting them into twisted monsters whose sole purpose is to proliferate and further spread the infection. The visibility is limited in this biome, and while you are still able of seeing without lights, you can see very little, a fact worsened by how the Barnacle creatures tend to have a very dark coloration. Allocating power to the lights is thusly advised. The boss of the Infected Depths is The Hive.
The Barnacle Infection was created by a Secret Underwater Laboratory. It's experiments, however, backfired greatly, and the barnacles spreaded quickly, overruning the laboratory and its occupants, and later the entire biome, and slowly mutating them into twisted, barnacle encrusted abominations, bent only into proliferating and extending the reach of the Barnacle Infection and its hive.
The purple water of this biome is riddled with larvae. Too much of it will cause Wall barnacles to grow on the walls of the submarine. These will grow and pop at different sizes, spawning different stages of the Barnacle Spider. The water or Wall Barnacles should be cleared to avoid getting overrun. Additionally, ingesting this biome's contaminated water can cause you to contract the Barnacle Infection, creating a small barnacle colony overruning your face, and making Stage 1 Barnacle Spiders periodically hatch from your very mouth!
