|First Appearance||Beta 1.0.0|
Termites appear as insects slightly larger than silverfish, with curved abdomens and animated mandibles. They crawl around and melee attack players, exactly like a normal Silverfish. Due to the way they spawn, they can become a nuisance, and a large swarm of them can be deadly.
Termites can be killed in one hit using a rare loot weapon, the Critter Cruncher.
Termites work very similarly to vanilla Silverfish; individually they are rather easy to kill, but in swarms can be very powerful. Thankfully, finding them in swarms is quite uncommon, either because it requires a spawner or requires someone to break one too many pieces of rotten weedwood bark. Deal with them casually whenever you come to face with one and they will not be a problem.
