1-9 Arachnophobia by halibabica 1-9 Arachnophobia by halibabica
Hero's comment as he's lighting the bomb is a jab at my original comic of this moment, where he stupidly decided to throw a rock and see what happens.  My art wasn't the only thing outdated back then. -_-

There must be plenty of bugs down there for the spiders to get so big

Ah, the giant spiders.  I only seem them twice, neither time did I fight it though.  The first time it was in a small enclosed space, getting to it would require the use of a bomb so I left it alone.  The second time I got to the exit and decided to see if there was any treasure down a "safe path."  I seen a good loot but it was guarded by a giant spider so I decided to not take the risk.

Are the giant spiders tricky?  Can they even be killed?

They're easy enough to kill by throwing a bomb into their web. Don't walk directly under them and don't hit them directly with the bomb (or anything else), because that wakes them up. They drop paste that gives you sticky bombs.

You can also use your whip and boots, if you're a REAL BADASS who doesn't have any bombs to spare.

They are very tricky.  They move in the same way normal spiders do, but because of their size, they're hard to dodge.  They do two damage per hit, have 10 health, and can shoot spider webs at you.  If you want to fight one off without using a bomb, you need a plan before alerting it.  It takes extra damage from the whip's pre-swing, so if you lure it into a tight space...

What do the spider webs do and what is the pre-swing?

The spider webs are exactly like what the web cannon fires.  A glob of goo pops out and unfolds into a web.

The whip's pre-swing is the moment where you see it behind Spelunker's head before whipping forward.  It damages enemies and hits multiple times before the swing is finished.

I'll keep that in mind.

Also, I decided to get playing it again, no luck, farthest I got in a few plays was the third floor.  Twice I fought a giant spider, the first time I had no choice, after wasting all my bombs trying to hit it's web I decided to fight it old school style and got my butt kicked, the second time I ran away after it dropped.

I know, really!  It's almost like it's big enough to draw them all or something.

So in the game can you actully kill the big spiders or is a run away or get eaten suitation?

You certainly can kill them, but some methods are much easier than others.  Blowing them up is the safest, but it costs you a bomb, and obviously it attacks if you miss.
