Viridian Pincers
+45% Emerald Damage
+3% Double Butterfly Spawn Chance
Maximum Level: 10

  • Increases Emerald Damage granted by mutations by 45% per level.
  • The very first level when you unlock gives you a double bonus, so you start with 90%
  • Mutation damage adds up into one big bonus, so adding this 45% to an existing bonus of 500% would total 545%.
  • The genes Mutation Infusion multiply this coloured damage by 10% per gene, to a maximum of 110%.
  • The Gene Lab's Mutation Specialization further add to this multiplication by 5% per level, with no maximum,
  • Increases the chance of seeing a double butterfly by 3% per level.
  • Without this mutation you will never see two butterflies at once.
  • When maxed out, you would have 495% added mutation damage for Emerald crabs and queens (multiplied by bonuses described above), and +30% to see two butterflies.


Butterflies spawn around 1-2 minutes depending on whether you also have the Red Devil Walkers mutation to increase their spawn rate. Without this mutation you will only ever see one butterfly at a time. With this, you can see two butterflies, and there is nothing wrong with that at all, especially once you unlock Treasure Butterfly and start enjoying the benefits that Flitter brings you.
