The Black Arachnoid is an enemy that appears in Serious Sam: Tormental. It is encountered in the Arachnoid boss fight in Nightmare Caves.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Black Arachnoid is a scorpion-like creature that resembles the Bombhead.

Occurrence[edit | edit source]

Like Bombheads, Black Arachnoids are often spawned in small groups during the boss fight.

Attacks[edit | edit source]

The Black Arachnoid's only attack is to explode into the player. They also explode after being killed. Like other explosive enemies, the player can set off a chain reaction by blowing up a Black Arachnoid that is next to other ones. When they die, they turn into an Arachnomare.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

  • Just like with the Bombhead, avoid Black Arachnoids as often as possible. Use the Sledgehammer to keep them away if you're being swarmed by them or other enemies.
  • Since they are very weak enemies, it only takes one Pistol shot to kill them.
  • Lure them into the center to have the Devouer kill them, or have them lined up with other enemies to blow them up.
  • With groups of them, the Machinegun or Shotgun work well.
