Armored Craw Worms are one of the new enemies featured in The Secret Armory of General Knoxx. They only appears in Crawmerax's Lair location, and they tend to be higher level than the player (Above level 69).

The Armored Craw Worm is a large, slow-moving, purple-gray version of a Larva crab worm. They are larger than other worms and have larger proportionally claws.



Armored Crab Worms have the same attacks as an ordinary crab worm, and spit purple globs that are slightly more powerful than a Green Craw Worm's are. Exploit their slow movement speed. Any character can outrun an Armored Worm.

Armored Craw Worms are extremely weak to corrosive damage. Each hit from an Eridian Rolling Spatter Gun on the armored part of the worm, including the claws, will be critical.


  • Regardless of the game mode, their name remains unchanged.
