Swarm. The swarm can occupy another creature's space and vice versa, and the swarm can move through any opening large enough for a Tiny insect. The swarm can't regain hit points or gain temporary hit points.

Fireball Burst. If the swarm suffers a critical hit from an attack that did not deal cold damage, one of the flies comprising the swarm erupts in a 5-foot radius ball of fire. Creatures in the area must make a DC 13 Dexterity saving throw, taking 7 (3d4) fire damage on a failure or half as much on a success.

ACTIONS

Multiattack. The fireball fly swarm makes two attacks: one Bites, and one Suicide Dive (if it has less than maximum Hit Points)

Bites. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 0 ft., one target in the swarm's space. Hit: 10 (4d4) piercing damage, or 5 (2d4) piercing damage if the swarm has half of its hit points or fewer.

Suicide Dive. If the swarm has less than maximum Hit Points, it can sacrifice one fireball fly. The swarm loses 2 Hit Points. The sacrificial fly strikes a point within 5 ft. of the swarm and erupts per Fireball Burst.


These insects are infused with elemental fire and can be found swarming in rocky wilderness areas, particularly near active volcanoes or magma streams. Like bees, individual fireball flies will sacrifice themselves to protect the swarm. They do so by immolating themselves in a burst of fire.
