How to Get Spider Silk

To get Spider Silk, approach one of the large webs and hit it with your axe. As you do this Spider Silk will be automatically added to your inventory. Be careful of spiders as you chop and flee if you are spotted; you can always return later. Something else to watch out for are the webs on the ground which will hold you in place if you walk into them.

What is Spider Silk Used For?

Spider Silk is used for a multitude of crafting recipes in Grounded. You'll need it in order to build the Dew Collector, which is an extremely useful thing to have at your camp.
