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.

Spiders spawn where light levels are too low, in caves all the time or when it becomes night. They are also sometimes found in Dungeons or Abandoned Mineshafts as the result of a Spider Spawner.

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.
