Coalescipedes, also known as Spiders, are swarming creatures that are able to easily overpower their prey with large numbers.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Coalescipedes are purely black in coloration. Having eight legs, a fused head and thorax, and a larger abdomen, they resemble real-life spiders. They come in various sizes, and may join up with one another to form a monstrous Coalescipede chain.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Being killed by a Flashbang

Evasion[edit | edit source]

Coalescipedes are driven away by light, meaning that they are easy to avoid if the player uses a light source such as a Lantern icon.png Lantern, Lantern Mouse icon.png Lantern Mouse or the light emitted when a Neuron Fly FP icon.png Neuron Fly is consumed. Coalescipede chains can be broken up into smaller, less aggressive segments with Spear icon.png Spears or Rubbish icon.png Rubbish, making them significantly easier to bypass.

Combat[edit | edit source]

The use of Flashbang icon.png Flashbangs is very effective when fighting Coalescipedes, as their flash is able to kill Coalescipede chains of any length instantly.

Abilities & Behavior[edit | edit source]

Aggression[edit | edit source]

Individual Coalescipedes and small chains are not aggressive - they become aggressive to a creature when the total mass of the Coalescipede chain exceeds the creature's. On average, a Coalescipede chain must comprise 8 or more Coalescipedes for it to become aggressive to the Survivor head.png Survivor.

Light Aversion[edit | edit source]

Coalescipedes are averse to light. They become agitated and scurry away from light sources such as Lantern icon.png Lanterns, held Lantern Mouse icon.png Lantern Mice, and environmental lighting. The more intense the light is, the more agitated Coalescipedes become and the faster they run away from it - the weak glow produced by undetonated Flashbang icon.png Flashbangs and Slime Mold icon.png Slime Mold have little to no effect on Coalescipedes. Lantern mice, when not being held by Slugcat, hardly agitate Coalescipedes with the light they produce, and Coalescipede chains hostile to them are not averse to their light whatsoever. Coalescipedes, when hostile to a creature holding a light source, are only averse to that light for a short period of time. (This period of time can vary wildly - in some instances being nearly imperceptible, and lasting well over eight seconds in others.)

Variants & Attributes[edit | edit source]

Coalescipedes can vary in size. Regardless of size, Coalescipedes' proportions are constant.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
