The Widowmaker is a very high leveled Spiderant that you will encounter during the "A Bug Problem" quest. This enemy is very distinctive due to its dark blue/purple and green colour. Widowmaker first spawns after you take a Retching Seeps sample from a deposit in Rust Commons East, but will keep on respawning after the quest is completed whenever you are near her(?) spawn point.  When she spawns, the ground shudders and kicks up a dust cloud before Widowmaker emerges.  She will drop several pieces of loot when killed but does not have hold any unique or special items.

  • Long ranged attack - The widowmaker will fire balls of white liquid from it abdomen, this is very similar to all spiderants.
  • Close range stomp - This spiderant will stomp with both front legs if you are very close to it, create a sonic boom that damages and sends you a couple feet back.
  • Burrowing - Widowmaker has the ability to burrow which is very uncommon if not non-exsitant with other spiderant.
  • Corrosive Stomp - The Widowmaker will look like its doing the usual close range stomp but when it hits the ground it will fire a corrosive ring of rays at you.


Like all spiderants, the Windowmaker has a weak abdomen, this is where you can score critical hits. So the easiest way to take this out is to flank it and get to that weak point. As with all spiderants you can shoot her in the front for a chance to daze her causing her to go into a short daze where they do not attack and are extremely vunerable, this is the same with Widowmaker. Unlike other spiderants the Widowmaker will not try to hit you will its front legs and therefore it is a good method to get up close although the stomp attack will make this difficult if you can move back and forward dodging the shock wave it willl have good effect.

You can also just roll it over with a car.
