If you play Grounded, this guide will give you some tips about fighting Spiders, Sting Bugs, Bombardbugs, Larvae and more, let’s check it out.
To counter Larvae
Prepare yourself an Ant Club, it will destroys them. Remember to use block, and it can tackle two-three in a row! It works the best. However you can also build floating bases with 1 scaffolding and lots of floors in certain areas then the only thing you got to worry about is gnats.
Also try this! A little clay, clover, and weed logs. I literally watched a swarm crawl up, stop at the barrier, and crawl back!
Killing spiders, stink bugs etc, you can use other creatures to tank them for you. Ladybirds/bugs are great for tanking spiders, ants are great for tanking stinkbugs and bombardbugs
Stand on ladybird back and shoot spiders, then keep bird between you and spider. As soon as spider hits bug, it’ll engage and they’re tough enough to kill them. Also if other ladybirds are nearby they’ll gang up together, as ants will. Just be careful if soldier ants join worker ants as they are more aggressive.
Use Mint hammer and Ant Club for combat. Hammer is good for ladybirds, club for spiders.
Block first, let bug attack, then hit it twice, then block again.
Use the terrain to get bugs stuck then use bow/arrows to kill.
Also look for leaves sticking up in the air, to choke point bugs so you can crowd control easier, esp for fighting larva.
You can build walls on top of walls.. if a bug can’t see you.. it usually won’t break the walls, grass walls are good perimeter fences, weed stem walls good for housing. Build off the ground with clay foundations. Or Scaffold to get away from spiders and ants. Place traps and spikes at stairs and near doors to keep critters away.
As soon as you can get acorn armour, gather acorns at the tree use it for making the larger storage boxes and the very op smoothie maker.
Smoothies can be made with any 3 items, they give water and heal you. You can make smoothies with 3 pebbles or 3 mushrooms or any mix of other base materials. Basically use all your excess stuff and keep a store of them for healing. In conjunction with bandages they can keep you going in combat for alot longer. Hopefully smoothies will be fixed to only use juice like components later on.
Grubs are little worms in the ground, Tremors style.. hit with spade/shovel then kill with spear.
There’s little Scab wristbands in various parts of the map. They are very small and difficult to see.
Research is the purple block hanging in the air, it is used to buy the bugl robot upgrades.
To access upgrades after finding bugl robot, look on the floor for the grasslands chip next to the robot, then give it to him in chat options with robot. 1000 research is needed for basic base upgrades.
