Spider Nest

BiomeBannerSpiderNest.png

Spider Nests are mini-Biomes located in the Cavern, 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 may generate with during 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).
  • Rarely, the corpse of a dead human can be found, covered in webs. It can be destroyed with a pickaxe.
  • Spider Nests seem to be more common near a Mushroom Biome. Verify

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.
