This article is about the Critter. For other uses, see Worm (disambiguation).

The Worm is a Critter that spawns underground, or on the surface during rain. Worms also have a chance to spawn on the surface when the player breaks stone or dirt piles, or grass, which causes them to fly out. Breaking larger rocks in the background has a high possibility of releasing worms.

They can be caught with a Bug Net and used as Bait for Fishing, and have 25% bait power. Like most Critters, they can also be released or crafted into a Worm Cage to be used as furniture.

Worms (and their golden counterparts) will become stuck in 1-tile holes in the ground, which can allow for easy collection during rains. However this only works if both tiles adjacent to the worm are not hammered inclines.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • On the surface, Worms have a 1/400 (0.25%) chance of dropping from short grass, 1/200 (0.5%) chance from tall grass, and 1/6 chance (16.7%) chance from dirt piles. These values are taken from the game code.
    • In-game testing seems to demonstrate a general drop rate from any ambient surface grass or plant type (short, tall, pink flower, blue flower, sprite with 1 piece of grass, sprite with 2, etc.) as 4.6%, regardless of time of day.
  • Worms will only spawn while it's raining on grass covered dirt blocks where the rain animation can reach the grass (that is, putting a roof/ceiling over the grass will prevent worms from spawning).

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.2.4: Can now be used as Bait. Worms now spawn when breaking rock and dirt piles.
