Elite Dark Spiderlings are a more powerful variation of Dark Spiderlings.
Although physically identical to most Dark Spiderlings, Elite Dark Spiderlings are stronger than their brethren, while not as powerful as
Dark Spiderling Invaders. Their attacks are considerably faster and deal more damage to players. Elite Dark Spiderlings have 25 Life, making them harder to defeat than most Dark Spiderlings.
Elite Dark Spiderlings infested the
Venture Explorer as it was taken over by the Maelstrom, searching the ship for the ten Datacards. Epsilon Starcracker sends players who return to the Venture Explorer after joining a Nexus Force faction to smash three Elite Dark Spiderlings. Afterwards, players can return to Epsilon Starcracker for Daily Missions to smash three more Elite Dark Spiderlings.
Elite Dark Spiderlings participated in
the Battle of Nimbus Station, invading Nimbus Plaza under the command of Whack Bliddo and the Four Riders of the Maelstrom. Players can go back in time using Wenn Wuzzit's Time Twister to participate in the battle and fight against the Elite Dark Spiderlings.
