  • Hold Breath. The spider can hold its breath for 15 minutes.
  • Spider Climb. The spider can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down on ceilings, without needing to attempt an ability check.
  • Webspinner. The spider ignores movement restrictions caused by webbing. While in contact with a web, the spider knows the exact location of any other creature in contact with the same web.


  • Multiattack. The spider makes two attacks: one with its Bladed Forelimbs and one with its Piercing Bite.
  • Bladed Forelimbs. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d8 + 4) piercing damage, and the target must succeed on a DC 15 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone.
  • Piercing Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) piercing damage, and the target must attempt a DC 15 Constitution saving throw. If the target is prone, it has disadvantage on this saving throw. On a failure, the target takes 21 (6d6) poison damage and becomes poisoned for 1 minute. While poisoned in this way the creature can’t stand up from prone.
  • Web Shot (Recharge 5–6). Ranged Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, range 30/60 ft., one creature. Hit: The target is restrained by webbing and knocked prone. As an action, the restrained creature can attempt a DC 15 Strength ability check, bursting the webbing on a success. The webbing can also be attacked and destroyed (AC 12; hp 10; vulnerability to fire damage; immunity to bludgeoning, poison, and psychic damage).
