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?
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!
