  • Whereas regular Leeches are black and red, One-Star leeches are a bright, poisonous green, and Two-Star leeches are purple and bright magenta.
  • Despite the bright colors of the One- and Two-Star Leeches, the darkness of the Swamp can often make it extremely hard to identify the level of a Leech, especially at a distance; using the targeting reticle at close-range to view its rarity is often the most reliable way.
