Rats are small rodents with red eyes and mangy fur that are enemies in Blood. Although they have the same HP as bats, they deal more damage, and are low to the ground, making them difficult to aim at. Like bats, they stay in holes in the wall and will surprise and swarm the player. But they can easily be killed by the pitchfork or simply stepping on them (resulting in a humorous squeak).
The "Blood Team" released "Weekly Blood Development Updates" on the 3D Realms website, and said this about this enemy:
- Update: 10/14/96: Tweaked some sound code. Started adding all the new sounds for the enemies. For a while the rats sounded like cultists, which was hilarious hearing them yell at you in their death throes.
