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 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*
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 :)
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!
Don’t go near it it will kill you,especially if you’re lvl 1 and it’s a higher lvl,now they can literally DESTROY stone,metal and tek with its bite,Be more careful when you’re in the arthroplura’s habitat
Thanks to the Halloween event where these SOBs spawn anywhere they like near my base I've discovered they can slide under gates......you expect to be safe from land creatures, BUT NO. Current death count from unexpected attacks at 2.
Be extremely cautious when taming these guys can destroy all ur armor with one spit. I also don't suggest attacking them bc that will break ur weapons real fast. If u r in a cave either avoid it or dodge it's spit while shooting it. It is a passive tame that requires spoiled meat or broths of enlightenment. You need to use bug repellent when taming it and I suggest also wearing gillie for extra safeness. Once tamed they are best used as turrets bc they don't have great stats and they have a turret mode after all why not use it?
Those who say it's very dangerous are crazy. Just bring a long neck rifle, one shot or two and boom. The first time I entered the South Cave, I tamed an scorpion and it significantly helped me to take care of the Arhtros and Boas.
Most of the creatures have arrows in their loots, so if u prefer a ballesta to deal with these bad boys, you are not running out of ammo any soon.
