Spider Nest

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Spider Nests are mini-biomes located underground, noted by the black background wall and the numerous Cobwebs filling the area. The Cobwebs rapidly grow back, which is a unique feature of the biome. Spider Nests can rarely contain Web Covered Chests, which they must generate with at world creation. The bound Stylist NPC can spawn here.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Cobwebs in a Spider Nest as seen while using a Dangersense Potion.
  • The spider and cobweb spawning properties of the biome are a result of the special wall tile present. Removing all the wall tiles with a hammer will effectively remove the biome.
  • While the cobweb here is infinite, not every one that you destroy drops a Cobweb item; rather, only 1/4 will drop Cobwebs (25% chance).

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Dangersense Potion can be useful in locating Spider Nests, because the Cobwebs inside sparkle in a unique pattern.
  • Creating three-block high diagonal tunnels into a Spider Nest using a hammer to slope the floor and ceiling will prohibit spiders from exiting (or entering, if they spawn outside), but not the player, this can be a good tactic to trap and easily kill spiders. Similarly, spiders can not fit into two-block wide vertical tunnels, and can be used the same way.
  • May be conducive to farming, as when the player and all possible enemy spawn points are within Spider Walls, only one enemy type (spiders — Wall Creeper/Black Recluse) will spawn.
