Badass Spiders are much tougher than their smaller comrades, at range and close up. Badass Spiders' melee attacks deal corrosive damage. They are also capable of spitting corrosive webbing or regular webbing that slows the target down. They have a great jumping ability as well, which allows them to leap great distances when attacking. Like most other spiders, they are weak to incendiary damage while being resistant to corrosive damage. Their abdomen is also a critical hit point.
- In True Vault Hunter Mode, Badass Spiders become "Super Badass Spiders." However, they revert to being "Badass Spiders" in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.
