Roach queens are a stronger variant of roaches but are still one of the first monsters encountered while adventuring. However, their ability to lay roach eggs gives them a devilish utility not seen in many other creatures.


When an enemy is killed, a queen will attempt to lay an egg in the direction closest to the player. These eggs can block corridors and depress pressure plates.
