The Jungle Creeper is a Hardmode enemy found in the Underground Jungle. It resembles a large spider colored brown with a bit of green, which may make it hard to spot. They climb on background walls similar to Wall Creepers.

Desktop version It can inflict the Acid Venom debuff and, in Expert Mode, gains a special spit attack that applies the Webbed debuff to players.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Like all spiders, Jungle Creepers cannot travel through a vertical 2-tile wide shaft.
  • Console VersionOld-gen console versionMobile version3DS version Jungle Creepers seem to be weaker than most enemies at the time making them more of a hassle than a real danger.
  • Desktop version The cooldown between web spit attacks lasts 3 seconds. It is paused if the Jungle Creeper loses focus on the player or has no direct line of fire, and it is increased by between 0.33 and 1 second when the Jungle Creeper takes damage.[1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Jungle Creeper: "The itsy bitsy spider climbed up a jungle vine, down came a hapless explorer and the spider got to dine. The End."
