The Crawler Is an enemy in Bloodborne.

Crawler Information

  • Found in the Nightmare Frontier.
  • This enemy has 2 variants: small and large. The only significant differences between these two seem to be health and damage output, which scale with size for this enemy.
  • This enemy has 4 basic attacks: a close-range tentacle swipe, a medium-range charge attack, a close-range poison cloud, and a medium-range poison vomit attack.
  • Alone they aren't much of a threat, but like the Rotted Corpses found in Yharnam, they are often found in groups, which is where their strength lies. It is easy to get stun-locked by multiple crawlers charging the player all at once, or to get stuck between them and a piece of terrain.
  • The Rapid Poison effect that they cause with their vomit can take out significant chucks of a player's health all at once, though not nearly as much as the frenzy effect caused by Winter Lanterns.
  • Their vomit attacks deal Blood damage.

  • Treat them like the sewer-corpse enemies found in Central Yharnam, and lure them out one at a time so you don't have to take on entire groups at once.
  • These enemies are not only found in the swamp areas that cause Slow Poison, but their ranged attacks can cause Rapid Poisoning. Antidotes are a must-have when facing them.
  • More often than not, it will be in the player's best interest to run past them, especially when crossing large stretches of the poison swamp. However, if they are guarding an item you are after, equip antidotes and take them on one at a time.

      smaller Kos?09 Aug 2016 05:17  

      Anyone else notice that these crawler enemies look like smaller versions of Kos, the dead Great One in the Fishing Hamlet? They also seem to have black messengers under them. Maybe smaller versions of Orphan of Kos?
