Introduction & Helpful Tips

Welcome to the Bugsnax Bugapedia Guide!

Check out our Platinum Review of this game to get my thoughts on the experience overall, however, if your mind is already made up about platting it, read on for help finding all Bugsnax.

Below, you’ll learn where and how to catch all 100 Bugsnax in order to fill your Bugapedia and earn the Quartermaster, Halfway There, and Got to Catch Them All trophies. This guide will also prove useful in completing main and side quests throughout the game as many quest objective will ask you to find and collect certain Bugsnax.

You can use the “Jump To…” links in the sidebar to find a specific Bugsnak, or use Ctrl/Cmd+F to search for one.

It’s helpful to note that if you scan a Bugsnak with the camera its patrol path will become highlighted.

You can also check the weather forecast in the map tab of the journal, which is helpful for finding the few Bugsnax that have weather-dependant spawns.

Every stage has a bed in it somehwere, which you can use with to sleep until Morning, Noon, Night, and Midnight. Useful for Bugsnax with time-dependant spawns.

Near the entrance to the cave you’ll find a Paletoss Grande, which will aggressively charge you, freezing you if it comes into contact. In order to split it into two Paletoss, you’ll need to bring it into contact with fire or lava.

Near the entrance to the cave you’ll find a Paletoss Grande, which will aggressively charge you, freezing you if it comes into contact. In order to split it into two Paletoss, you’ll need to bring it into contact with fire or lava.

There are plenty of lava rivers nearby, so just bait the Paletoss over to one by having it charge you, and then once it has been thawed, a bomb-shaped timer will appear above it’s head.

Flamin’ Cheepoof

blank

Spawn Conditions: Available at any time in any weather.

Two Flamin’ Cheepoofs can be found in the lava cave, and they are the most difficult Bugsnak to capture. First, you’ll need to get the Paletoss Grande to follow you into the cave. You’ll need to make sure it doesn’t thaw, too, as we’ll use it’s frostiness to cool off the Cheepoof once we stun it.

If the Paletoss Grande does thaw, let it split into two Paletoss, as they can be used too, and will re-freeze if they stay away from the lava for long enough.

With the Paletoss in the room, prepare your Trip Shot. Scan the Flamin’ Cheepoofs and you’ll see that one of them has a lower flight path than the other. Typically their flight paths mean they will stay over the lava 95% of the time, which we don’t want as the Paletoss then won’t be able to reach them. However, the one with the lower path goes over the rocks at the edge of the lava in the corner of the room, near the entrance.

Place the Trip Shot underneath this portion of the flight path which is not over the lava, and fire it directly upwards at the ceiling, creating a vertical tripwire.

To break apart a Picantis, bait it over to the oasis and into the water, or close enough that the Sodie in the oasis sprays it with water. Now, once it is cooled off, wait for the bomb-shaped timer to reach zero, at which point it will break up into it’s various components.

To spawn a Banopper, you’ll first need to split a Scoopy Banoopy up into its component parts. To do so, you can either place your Trip Shot in a fire source such as a campfire or a torch and then shoot it at the Scoopy Banoopy, or you can bait the Stewdler from inside the cave over to it.

The Scoopy Banoopy, once thawed, will have a bomb-shaped timer above its head, once this reaches zero the Bugsnak will break down into its component parts, one of which is the Banopper, which will retreat into the trees and begin hopping between them.

To capture it, place a tripwire in its path and then grab it after it has been stunned.
