Poison capsule being deployed against some trees. Note the size of the cloud created.

A basic capsule that creates a large, long-lasting (20 seconds) cloud of regular poison damage at the target area. This is one of the most effective ways of removing Trees.

Poison capsules can also be used to "kite" Worms, since they are stationary. This technique is relatively safe, but slow and expensive - it takes 4-5 poison capsules to kill a Big Worm. Since Spawners are not affected by poison damage, Poison capsules are also useless against them.
