Spiderants are a type of enemy in Borderlands 3. There’s a side quest called Just Desserts, which requires you to collect twelve spiderant eggs. In order to do this, you’ll have to find their lairs, destroy the egg sacs and collect the eggs. It might sound easy, but many people are struggling with it. If you’re having trouble finding the eggs, this guide will show you Borderlands 3 spiderant locations, to help you complete the Just Desserts quest.
Spiderant eggs locations in BL3
Once you get the quest, the map marker will lead you to your destination. It’s a cave in the southwestern corner of the Splinterlands, on Pandora. When you’ll go inside, you’ll notice it’s filled with nests and various spiderant enemies – rooks, warriors and even a queen. You don’t need to kill them, but it’ll make things easier – plus you might get something good from them, you never know.
As for the eggs themselves, they’re in the orange glowing sacs. You need to destroy the sacs, and each will drop 3-4 eggs. Walk over them and collect them – once you’ve got twelve, you’ll complete the objective. Sometimes the eggs can disappear before you collect them. If that happens, collect what you can, then save and reload the area.
There should be at least three sacs in the cave, so you should be able to collect all twelve eggs without much trouble in one go. If you end up being short for whatever reason, you should leave the area so that enemies can respawn, save the game, exit to the menu then reload again. Once you’re back in, the enemies and sacs should be there once more, allowing you to get the eggs you’re missing and complete the quest.
If you’re not interested in the eggs, and are just looking for spiderants because you like hunting them for sport, this area is teeming with them, and they’ll reappear each time you visit. Happy hunting!
