Being the only bug with natural DoT, Stinkbug takes it to high levels. Although he doesn't do much damage, the DoT seriously boosts that and with the added perk of having 100 armor piercing. His abilities are well balanced for crowd control and bringing down tier 5 enemies.
His normal attack slows enemies, damages them and gives them damage over time for 5s. It also has the highest armor piercing in the game, at 100. It can only hit one enemy at a time, but using his Poison Shells gives his attacks splash damage. Combine that with Poison Bomb and he can clear an area in under 10 seconds.
Stinkbug's basic attacks and his Toxic Ooze ability slow enemies. This can give Stinkbug's partner room to maneuver, and is great when facing melee enemies as a ranged character.
Stinkbug is also the proud owner of one of the two abilities in the game (Cyanide Blast) that does damage as a percentage of an enemy's total health (The other being Roach's Hunger Strike, but that uses food from the stash). This makes him incredibly useful in later rounds when Centipedes and other high health bugs appear.
Stinkbug is a versatile hero with good health and unique, powerful abilities. He can be paired with another tank like Beetle for serious crowd control or with a strong ranged character such as Ant to give them breathing room by cutting down enemies.
