Iron Scent. The dragon can pinpoint, by scent, the location of ferrous metal within 60 feet of it.

Rust Metal. Any nonmagical weapon made of metal that hits the dragon corrodes. After dealing damage, the weapon takes a permanent and cumulative −1 penalty to damage rolls. If its penalty drops to −3, the weapon is destroyed. Nonmagical ammunition made of metal that hits the dragon is destroyed after dealing damage.


Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d10 + 3) piercing damage.

Breath Weapons (Recharge 5-6). The dragon uses one of the following breath weapons:

Acid Breath. The dragon exhales acid in a 30-foot line that is 5 feet wide. Each creature in that line must make a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw, taking 18 (4d8) acid damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
Rust Breath. The dragon exhales gas in a 10-foot cone. This gas corrodes nonmagical ferrous metal objects within its area. If the object isn't being worn or carried, the gas destroys a 1-foot cube of it. If the object is being worn or carried by a creature, the creature can make a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw to avoid the gas.
If the object is either metal armor or a metal shield being worn or carried, it takes a permanent and cumulative −1 penalty to the AC it offers. Armor reduced to an AC of 10 or a shield that drops to a +0 bonus is destroyed. If the object is a held metal weapon, it rusts as described in the Rust Metal trait.
