Spiders move quickly and will go in all directions randomly, making them unpredictable. However, if they have a direct line of sight on Isaac, and are close enough, they will move towards him. They are also able to fit through small diagonal gaps.
Variations[edit | edit source]
Big Spider[edit | edit source]
Big Spiders look like regular Spiders, but with a large black abdomen attached. They behave in the same way as the regular Spiders, having the same movement speed and erratic behavior. However, they have nearly triple the health of regular Spiders, and upon death, they will split into two regular Spiders. They will not split if they are killed by an explosion.
Swarm Spider[edit | edit source]
Swarm Spiders act much like normal Spiders but are much smaller and tend to come in much larger groups. They also hop and flash a bright yellow.
They are spawned by Eggy once it takes enough damage.
Strider[edit | edit source]
Rock Spider[edit | edit source]
Rock Spiders behave very closely to Spiders, but they are the Mines variant and skitter at a slower speed due to the rock on them.
Upon death, it turns into a normal Spider.
Tinted Rock Spider[edit | edit source]
Tinted Rock Spiders are essentially the exact same as Rock Spiders, however they have nearly twice as much health and drop 1 Soul Heart upon death. They are characterized by the "X" on their rock, which is similar to Tinted Rocks.
They do not spawn naturally; there is a chance that 1-2 will spawn upon destruction of a Tinted Rock.
Coal Spider[edit | edit source]
Coal Spiders behave very closely to Spiders, but they skitter at a faster speed due to being on fire.
Upon death, it leaves a hot rock on the ground that despawns after several seconds.
