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


The Moloch Shell Fragment can only be acquired from the Moloch.png Moloch 33% of the time.


The Moloch Shell Fragment functions like a type of shield which shares many similarities to the Moloch'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 Moloch Shell Fragment has a flat statistic of 500 health. It doesn't specifically resist any types of damage better than others.


The Moloch Shell Fragment 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.


  • There was a bug within the game that swapped the Moloch Shell Fragment with the Mudraptor Shell. Whilst the items functioned as normal, they were dropped by the incorrect creatures and named incorrectly, effectively turning the Moloch Shell Fragment into the current Mudraptor Shell and vice versa.
