We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Bug Net and Golden Bug Net comparison.

The Golden Bug Net is an upgraded version of the Bug Net. It functions similarly, being a swung tool that captures Critters, but is larger, faster, and can destroy any tiles that weapons can destroy (like tall grass and vines). It still deals no damage. The Golden Bug Net is obtained as a random reward (1/100 or 1% chance) for completing Fishing Quests for the Angler.

The Golden Bug Net makes acquiring Bait easier, as some Bait Critters have a chance to spawn from destroying grass, which can then be caught without the need to switch items. It cannot be reforged with modifiers.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • When used in conjunction with the Flower Boots, quick bait-farming can be accomplished, due to the boots creating flowers and grass underneath you, and the Golden Bug Net destroying the grass and capturing any bait within at the same time.
  • Using a Flare Gun and Flower Boots, shooting the ground under you while auto-swinging a Bug Net renders the Golden Bug Net unnecessary, as the rate which plants are broken via the Flare is far faster than the Golden Bug Net alone.
  • It can be used for an improved chance at catching a Truffle Worm due to its faster swing speed giving the worm less time to escape.
