CaveSpider

The cave spider is a neutral mob that can inflict poisoning.

Spawning[edit]

Monster spawners[edit]

Cave spiders spawn from monster spawners in abandoned mine shafts.

Drops[edit]

They drop 0-2 string. They also have a 13 chance to drop a spider eye if killed by a player. They drop 5 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.

Behavior[edit]

Cave spiders inherit most of their behavior from regular spiders:

  • They are pacified (made neutral) by bright light (daylight or light levels of 9 or higher). Likewise, subjecting them to darkness will render them hostile.
  • They can climb walls when needed.
  • They attack by leaping at the player.
  • They are not affected by cobwebs or poison.

However, cave spiders will not spawn with beneficial status effects and cannot spawn as spider jockeys.

Venom[edit]

When bitten by a cave spider, the bitten entity is inflicted with
Poison
I[1] for 7 seconds on normal difficulty and 15 seconds on hard.

Trivia[edit]

  • The cave spider's texture appears to be at a higher-resolution than its normal counterpart - this is because the textures occupy a smaller space.
  • Despite being smaller, they have the same size shadow as a normal spider.
  • If cave spiders are allowed to spawn naturally via hacks, they will only spawn if the light level is 7 or below (like most other hostile mobs).
