Spiderant Gyros are spiderants with a carapace of the strong blue color, tiny abdomen, and frightening speed.



Main article: Spiderant#General Strategy

Gyro type of spiderant leaps, slashes, and also uses a highly damaging rolling tackle. Out of all the spiderant breeds, this can be the most difficult to take on as they can outrun Vault Hunters even when sprinting and then leap onto their backs or roll over to knock a sizable portion off their shield. They also have keen reflexes, and can quickly pick up and deliver a rapid string of attacks to anything in front of them.

Like with spiderant workers, its best to try and get behind this blue dervish after it leaps at the target. Not only will this put the abdomen into one's crosshairs, but it will also delay the creature as it tries to lock back onto its target.


  • In Playthrough 2 they are renamed Spiderant Beetle, and in Playthrough 2.5 they are renamed Spiderant Vermin.
