Release [[Update:{{{release}}}|{{{release}}}]]

Huge Bugs are defenseless, passive creatures in Darkwood.

They are found mostly around Bug Nests. Of special note is that they are known to cause Worms in the Hideout at night if they find an opening in the building to crawl through. If the player approaches a huge bug around Bug Nests, it will attempt to retreat into the nearest hole.

Huge bugs drop Shells.

Strategy Edit

With a short sprint and quick attack, it is possible to kill a huge bug with just a melee weapon. Alternatively, the player can also use a cheap ranged item such as a Bottle to kill a bug from a distance.

Huge bugs can also be driven out from their holes by setting them on fire, which may also ignite the fleeing bug.

Night Event Edit

Holes may appear inside your hideout during one of the nightly events. Huge bugs will climb out of the holes, and if not dealt with, they will spread Worms in the Hideout.

Trivia Edit

  • One of the Alpha updates removed bugs appearing on the Dry Meadow Hideout, instead introducing their mechanics to the player on the Cottage (A), which was later changed into the Entrance to Silent Forest.
  • Developers will often refer to Huge Bugs as "Spiders" in the changelogs. Game files also refer to them as spiders.
