Cave Spider in Minecraft 

Cave spiders are a neutral mob that appeared after the release of Beta 1.8 in Java Edition, TU5/CU1/1.0/Patch 1 in console versions, and 0.11.0 in Pocket Edition. They can only be found in abandoned mineshafts and caverns. Cave spiders are smaller than conventional spiders and have a dark blue retexturing. They are superior to and somewhat more hazardous than typical spiders since they can squeeze through 0.5X1 holes (through half block holes) and climb up walls, although they have less health and may occasionally suffer fall damage. Cave spiders are a kind of spider that only spawns underground in Minecraft. Although they vary from conventional spiders in various ways, they remain one of the most difficult mobs to defeat. Cave spiders first appeared in Minecraft’s 1.0 release and have been present ever since Cave Spider in Minecraft .

They have a lot of the same behaviours as normal spiders:

They are neutral before spotting a player if it is daytime or light levels of 9 or higher; otherwise, they are hostile.

Light has no effect on them after they’ve become hostile.

Climb as many walls as you need to.

Jump at the player to attack.

Cobwebs and poison have no effect on it.

Spider jockeys are a type of spider that may spawn (Bedrock Edition only)

They are afflicted by the Bane of Arthropods enchantment, much as normal spiders. They drop the same items as well: spider eyes and thread. The cave spider, on the other hand, has a few critical features that make it one of the most dangerous mobs:

Can fit through a one-block wide and 12-block tall space.

If two distinct types of fences are not connected, it is possible to pass through the gaps between them.

Status effects aren’t allowed to generate.

The most significant distinction is that they may poison the player. Cave spiders will poison the player if they assault them on Normal or Hard difficulties. The poison effect lasts seven seconds and damages four hearts on Normal Difficulty.

It lasts 15 seconds on Hard difficulty and does 10 hearts of damage. When the player’s health is one or lower, poison damage is not received. On Easy difficulty, they will not poison you.


The cave spider has the potential to poison players as a special attack. The poison has no effect on a player’s armour and will not kill them. Instead, a player’s health will be reduced to one (Half Heart.png). The cave spider only uses its one-of-a-kind ability on regular and higher difficulty levels.


Several tactics for dealing with aggressive cave spiders may be utilised depending on the gamemode and the player’s current status. The easiest and least expensive method is to use water to dislodge cobwebs and force spiders away from the spawner’s exit. Setting fire to the cobwebs or utilising lava are two additional easy options (the latter being the most dangerous). Cave spiders may be located in abandoned mineshafts, therefore a player can easily move to a higher tier and kill the spawner without being hurt. To help destroy the spawner, place candles around it to prevent the cave spiders from producing any more.

Cave spiders are best dealt with with melee assaults on simple level because they are the healthiest hostile mob and deliver little damage with no poisoning. Ranged is optional at medium and higher levels, but not recommended during a cave spider swarm. Swarms are best dealt with without direct engagement (most efficiently with fire), as they are capable of killing even high-armor players swiftly with physical strikes. The most critical goal is to destroy or deactivate the spawner. If a player has the means to shield themselves from the poison or swarming spiders, it is recommended that they deal with it first.Because it can only focus on a single victim and cave spiders typically come in bunches, ranged combat is the most perilous. Because of the restricted pathways in a mineshaft, it is especially not recommended in multiplayer.


Before its cave moniker, the cave spider had two names. “Tree spider” was one, and “blue spider” was the other.

The cave spider is small enough to fit beneath half-blocks (i.e. slabs). Cave spider farms are particularly difficult to construct as a result of this.

Cave spider farming is made much more difficult by their ability to crawl over fences.

Cave spider spawners may be found in the mineshafts of the mesa biomes. Cave spiders become docile in the sunshine, offering the player a little margin of safety while exterminating them, making them potentially safer than their more common cousins.

They’re a little smaller than their more typical counterparts.

The vision of a cave spider is similar to that of a typical spider, but with a red hue.
