Dave the Diver: Where to find and catch 3-star Spider Crab

Depending on how you catch a sea creature, they’ll range from one to three stars. How you can find and catch the Spider Crab in Dave the Diver is in the Blue Hole depths with a rock, Shovel, or Steel Net Gun. You’ll spot a Spider Crab or two on the ocean floor of the Blue Hole Depths, and there are multiple ways to harvest them, similar to catching Jellyfish.

First off, make your way to the Blue Hole Depths, which starts around 130 meters deep. The Spider Crabs themselves are around 190 meters deep, resting on the ground. They aren’t very friendly, so don’t try to get too close. There are a few ways to get a Spider Crab. Two will damage the crab and one will leave it in pristine condition. Let’s go over the damage-causing methods first.

When you first come upon a Spider Crab, you’ll notice that there are some yellow boxes nearby them. If you open one, you’ll likely find a Shovel. You can actually use Shovels as weapons, and it’ll make Dave push downwards onto an enemy.

This will immediately kill the Spider Crab, but sadly only leaves you with a 1-star Spider Crab. Dave can also drop rocks onto them once he unlocks the Gloves in Chapter 2. Again, this doesn’t yield you a good-quality crab.

The best way to catch a 3-star Spider Crab is with a Net Gun. It seems as though players on Steam Forums have discovered that an upgraded Net Gun will work. Specifically, the level four upgrade, which is the Steel Net Gun.

Upgrading your weapons, especially to their final level, takes a lot of crafting materials. But once you do, you can catch the highest-quality Spider Crab.
