The Mutated Milk is a secondary weapon for the Scout. It is a jar of "milk" with a Bread Monster suspended inside. The bread monster struggles and squirms inside the jar while growling.

This weapon functions identically to the Mad Milk, however, upon a direct hit on a target, a bread monster will appear squirming and biting the target's head on the side they were hit from for 10 seconds. If hit more than once, it is possible to accumulate several bread monsters on a single victim, which will additionally stack with any from Self-Aware Beauty Mark. If the target is killed, all of the bread monsters on them will persist on their corpse for 10 seconds, regardless of how long they have been sodden. This is a cosmetic effect and doesn't damage the player.

If the Mutated Milk is crit boosted when the projectile is thrown, the Bread Monster's size on targets it hits directly is drastically increased.
