The 虫网 is a 工具 used to capture 小动物s as 物品栏 items. It is swung like a 剑, but deals no damage. The Bug Net is required in order to go 钓鱼, as it is the initial and primary method of obtaining 鱼饵. Most Critters that are insects, 蠕虫s, or 蜗牛s can function as Bait once captured. The Bug Net is purchased from the 商人 for 25 each (1 on the 主机版 and 移动版). In the Mobile version, it can also be found as secondary loot in any type of chest above the surface layer.
The 金虫网 is an upgraded version that is bigger, swings faster, and can destroy tall grass, vines, and uproot plants, the way weapons do.
- A captured 小动物 can be combined with a 泰拉制笼机 to craft a decorative Cage that showcases the animated Critter inside.
- Captured Critters can also be "used", or dropped, which frees them back into the environment.
- Captured 兔兔 can be used to craft Explosive Bunnies.
- A captured 松露虫 is required in order to summon 猪龙鱼公爵, a Boss, during 困难模式. It must be used as Bait at an 海洋.
- Critters have high sell values. Only about 5 Critters sold pays off the Bug Net, making it a useful moneymaker in the early game. Rare golden Critters can be sold for 10 each. ()
