Bug Net and Golden Bug Net comparison.

The Bug Net is a tool used to capture critters as inventory items. It is swung like a broadsword, but it deals no damage. The Bug Net is required in order to go fishing, as it is the initial and primary method of obtaining bait. Most critters that are insects, worms, or snails can function as bait once captured. The Bug Net is purchased from the Merchant for 2500*25 Silver Coin.png (10000*1 Gold Coin.png on Old-gen console version Old-gen console and 3DS version3DS).

The Golden Bug NetGolden Bug NetDesktop VersionConsole VersionMobile Version is an upgraded version that is bigger, swings faster, and can destroy tall grass, vines, and uproot plants, the way weapons do.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Other uses[edit | edit source]

  • Captured critters can also be "used", or dropped, which frees them, putting them back into the environment.
  • Captured Bunnies can be used to craft Explosive Bunnies.
  • A captured Truffle Worm is required in order to summon Duke Fishron, a boss, during Hardmode. It must be used as bait in the Ocean biome.
