The Vile Feeder is a craftable Pre-Hardmode summon weapon. When used, it summons a tiny Eater of Souls minion, which flies around and latches onto nearby enemies. When latched, it does not deal contact damage to enemies but releases several homing tiny eaters similar to the Scourge of the Corruptor. It is the Corruption counterpart to the Scab Ripper.

Its best modifier is Mythical. While Ruthless may seem to provide a bigger damage by percentages, rounding reveals that Mythical and Ruthless boost the damage equally for this weapon.
