Minecraft (Pocket Edition)
Spiders are found throughout Minecraft. They are a Hostile Mob creature during the night and a Neutral Mob creature during the day. They can be killed with any block, though most efficiently with a Bow and Arrow or a Sword. It is best to be standing on a block above the Spider as the Spider will jump up at you to attack.
Usage / Purpose
When killed they produce String. They have no other use, other than for making players with arachnophobia nervous.
Drops / Yields
Spiders drop String when killed.
Spiders are available in both Survival Mode (as a naturally spawning creature), or in Creative Mode as a Spawn Spider Egg.
Spiders jump when they attack, which makes them difficult to get near.
