The Arachnid Mother has more health than most Tier-3 zombies, and may inflict poison ailments when attacking. It also spawns a group of tarantulas when it is killed.

Engagement & Tactics

The Arachnid Mother is usually a threat when it is killed close to a location that an ally is near because it will spawn numerous tarantulas which have approximately .9 more movement speed than the arachnid mother. The tarantulas may then block or surround the ally, possibly causing injury or fatality. Tarantula spawns do not cause deaths very often, but they are still important to be aware of.
