The Eggbug is a skittish, passive creature that is agile and provides a great amount of food when killed.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Eggbugs loosely resemble real insects with long antennae and segmented bodies. Eggbugs have two sets of legs, two antennae, a head, a torso, and six detachable Eggbug Egg icon.png Eggbug Eggs. Their bodies range from dark brown to dark purple, with their antennae lightening in color near the tips. Their eyes and 'eggs' range from dark blue to bright teal.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Combat[edit | edit source]

Being able to swiftly dodge thrown Spear icon.png Spears, Eggbugs can be tricky to kill without proper technique. Attacking an Eggbug close quarters is the most effective way to deal with one, as it is less likely to dodge Spears in time. Eggbugs can be stunned with Rubbish icon.png Rubbish, as they do not attempt to dodge it. On death, their eggs drop from their bodies with an audible pop.

Utility[edit | edit source]

Though elusive, Eggbugs are one of the most significant sources of food once they die and release their Eggs. These fill 1 food pip each, providing 6 pips in total, and 7 as Hunter head.png Hunter, as they can also eat the body. Bringing a live Eggbug into a shelter and killing it inside can be particularly useful, as the food is then stored for later use.

Abilities & Behavior[edit | edit source]

Eggbugs are extremely anxious and skittish, usually staying well away from other creatures, including Slugcat head.png Slugcat.

Evasion[edit | edit source]

Eggbugs can evade thrown Spears very effectively. This, coupled with their speed, can make it challenging to land a hit on one.
