The Gold Water Strider is a harmless Critter. It is a gold recolor of an ordinary Water Strider, with a 0.67*1/150 (0.67%) chance of spawning instead of an ordinary version.

As with all other gold critters, it can be caught with a Bug Net and sold for 10. It can also be used as bait, and along with the other golden bait critters, it has a bait power of 50%, the highest usable value among bait.

It is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform AnalyzerDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions.
