“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Spiderantlings or Spiderlings are the lowest and weakest form of spiderants in Borderlands and Borderlands 2, respectively. They are most likely baby or freshly hatched spiderants, as their underdeveloped heads and forelimbs lack effective armor.
Interestingly, this breed (BL variant only) doesn't suffer critical damage to the abdomen, but this doesn't mean much as they are inherently weak and fragile. They attack by leaping, but will also run up to their intended victims and swipe with one of forelimbs. They are little more than a nuisance to most and any weapon, or even a couple of melee strikes, can dispatch these tiny beasties in short order.
- In Playthrough 2 they are renamed Skittish Spiderantling, and in Playthrough 2.5 they are renamed Agitated Spiderantling.
- In Borderlands 2, regardless of the game mode, their name remains unchanged.
