The Spider Nest is a minibiome that has a rare chance to appear in the Cavern layer. Within it, the player can find Wall Creepers and Web Covered Chests. In Hard Mode, Black Recluses will replace the Wall Creepers. Cobwebs spawn at a very rapid rate after being removed, making these a good place to farm Silk. When these spider webs are broken, they only have a 1 in 4 chance of dropping Cobwebs. Wall Creepers spawn at a very rapid rate as well (same with Black Recluse Spiders), presenting difficulty to beginners. Often you can kill all the spiders in the nest, go to another screen, and a majority of them will have spawned back. The Stylist NPC can be found in these nests, and will be bound just like the Mechanic, the Goblin Tinkerer and the Wizard.
- The Spider Nest is the only place you can get the Web Slinger and the Poison Staff.
- The only way to get rid of these biomes is to use a Hammer to take away the walls.
- Web Covered Chests will always contain the Web Slinger.
- One of the possible background objects appears to be a corpse wrapped in web.
