Hang Spiders are enemies found in the Jungle in Spelunky 2. They are a variant of Spider, along with the Giant Spider.


Hang Spiders are identical in behavior to the Spinner Spiders of Spelunky HD. They will always spawn attached to a web, and will periodically dive down. If stunned, either by a broken arrow or by a camera, they will drop down and hop around like a normal spider.


  • They seemed to be based off of the spiny orb weaver. the spider shown in game are most likely female, as the species generally shows sexual dimorphism with the females being noticeably larger than the males and more brightly colored.


Spinner Spiders are enemies found in The Mines. They reside in webs attached to the ceiling, and will periodically 'bungee' downwards on a silk thread before climbing back to their nest.
They only ever move vertically, and can control how far they drop based on where the Spelunker is. They are easily dispatched with well-timed attacks.

If they are stunned by the Camera, hit with a broken Arrow or shot with a Freeze Ray right when they are suspended above the ground, they will fall to the ground and behave just like Spiders.

Their webs can cause issues in a Speedrun and will leave projectiles stuck in them even if said projectile kills the Spinner Spider residing within.

They also appear more frequently in the Spider's Lair Level Feeling.


If you try to move a Spinner Spider whille it is lowered by moving a crush block into it, it will stay in it's current animation and not move. This does not always work, however, as sometimes the Spider's web will just break.
