Useful Info

Demonic crawlers are grotesque demonic pests that can swiftly outrun most characters and which deal moderate damage in melee. They are often encountered in the Spider's Nest, as well as Gloorx Vloq's realm in Pandemonium.

Tips & Tricks

  • They partially resist most elemental damage, but not so much that decent casters can't power through it. That being said, physical, non-elemental, or especially holy damage works better.
  • Unlike most other opponents in the Spider's Nest, demonic crawlers are nearly immune to poison and shake off most Hexes, but they are vulnerable to weapons of holy wrath and other holy effects.


  • Prior to 0.28, demonic crawlers were Big-sized, did less damage, and did not have Warning Cry.
  • Prior to 0.25, demonic crawlers could cling to walls.
