The Moloch Shell Fragment is a piece of equipment used to block incoming attacks.


The Mudraptor Shell can only be acquired from the Mudraptor.png Mudraptor 6% of the time or rarely right after the Mudraptor Egg Large.png Mudraptor Egg has fully grown and hatched (May be due to a bug).


The Mudraptor Shell functions like a type of shield which shares many similarities to the Mudraptor's Armor, though it appears weaker and usually unreliable as sometimes it halves all damages, but other times it does not resist certain types of attacks.

The user also receives a penalty of 40% to their movement speed when wielding it. Regardless, the shield has the ability to push against any characters, humans or Creatures, towards whichever direction the wielder is going.


The Mudraptor Shell requires both hands to operate and cannot be added to the player's inventory. Once equipped, holding right click (mouse 2) makes the character aim the shield.
