According to Spirit Guide
- Category: Class VI Vermin Entity
- Type: Corporeal (dispersible)
A close relative of the Venom Crawler, Spider Crawlers are also physical manifestations of the vermin spirits, though of a different order. Encounters with these creatures have only been reported on the ghost plane, where they are usually the heralds of other, more dangerous powers.
Like most crawlers, the Spider Crawler is very weak. Blast the beasties with a Shock Blast or a Boson Dart to disperse them before they can reach you.
- Hotel Sedgewick (second visit)
The Spider Witch can spawn these little pests from eggs on the 12th Floor.
