Mother Spiders are a type of spider exclusive to DLC icon.pngDownpour. They are large, agile, and have a green coloration on the ends of their quills. When killed, they release several Coalescipede icon.png Coalescipedes from their body.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Mother Spiders resemble large arachnids, being similar to Big Spider icon.png Big Spiders and Spitter Spider icon.png Spitter Spiders. They possess a swollen abdomen due to carrying their brood, and appear to have a head that juts out to one side. Their legs are long and slender, easily surpassing their body in height.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Combat[edit | edit source]

Mother Spiders, despite their low speed and strength, can dodge incoming ranged attacks by leaping above or ducking. However, they are unable to dodge in quick succession, so throwing an object such as Rubbish icon.png Rubbish before striking it with a Spear icon.png Spear is a viable strategy to defeat one.

When killed, the Mother Spider's abdomen releases a swarm of Coalescipedes and dull green particles. This swarm may target another creature rather than the Slugcat head.png Slugcat, giving an opportunity to escape.

Grenade icon.pngExplosive Spear icon.png Explosives can be used to kill Mother Spiders along with their Coalescipedes, although the timed fuse of Explosive Spear icon.png Explosive Spears can allow Coalescipedes to escape before being killed.

Taming[edit | edit source]

Mother Spiders can be fed to Lizards icon.png Lizards to tame them, though this is highly dangerous due to the Coalescipede swarm that results after their death. Feeding them live is also heavily impractical, as it is only possible to pick one up if stunned.

Abilities & Behavior[edit | edit source]

Mother Spiders are reclusive and skittish, choosing to run from anything they deem a threat. They ignore Big Spiders, Spitter Spiders, and Coalescipedes. When a creature persistently follows Mother Spiders, they resort to lunging at them to stun them. Mother Spiders can lunge at, catch and kill Slugcat.

Dodge[edit | edit source]

Mother Spiders are able to leap or duck away from ranged attacks.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Mother Spider's behavior and unique ability bears close resemblance to a large number of real-life spiders, such as wolf spiders, who carry their spiderlings near or on their abdomens, typically in an egg sac underneath their abdomens and cephalothorax.
  • Like Spitter Spiders, Mother Spiders are not killed by Flashbang icon.png Flashbangs. The Coalescipedes also survive Flashbangs as long as they are on the Mother Spider's body.
