DO NOT ENGAGE OR YOU WILL DIE! I was hunting araneos when this thing came out of nowhere and three shot me! All my dimorphs were literally devoured when I came back. It is like centipedes in real life but instead of killing you slowly with poison it kills you with bites quickly. Do not equip anything lower than Chitin or you will get one shot. Make the up arrow green so people can know 🙏🏻
I once encountered this pretty much rare creature in the cave of the hunter. I had a metal shield with full durability and it was destroyed by two or three spits(easy mode btw). Obviously it was bye-bye metal shield. One thing I noticed though is that they are a bit like the titanoboa just with a spit added and could be killed with a pike. If you have a good movement speed level.
Found in almost every caves except the underwater , Lava and Snow (they don't like extreme weather I guess) easiest taming methods lure it into water and let it sink to bottom, no oxygen stat so won't drown, go and feed it spoiled meat, tame it , put a saddle and get out :)
I TRIED TAMING IT! I lured three into the water so I can choose which I'll be taming together with Araneos and Scorpions but,NOOOO! IT STARTS SPITTIN' AT ME LIKE CRAZY EVEN IF I'M UNDERWATER WITH MY SABER! It destroyed my chitin armor with two shots and I literally screamed while dodging its spit attacks! In the end, I killed 'em all! *sniffs*
Don't use a sword or any melee weapon because it breaks them and keep a distance and bring a long range weapon and if you hate bugs especially when they to the point of being a footipede instead of a centipede then that will always work but watch out for others too!
