In this Core Keeper Bug Catching Guide, we'll tell you how to catch Bugs, how to get a Bug Net, and where you can find Bugs!

How to Catch Bugs in Core Keeper

As you might expect, you'll need a Bug Net in order to catch Bugs in Core Keeper. The challenge of this new mechanic is less about actually catching the bugs -- you're going to have a more difficult time finding them.

A keen eye is critical to catching Bugs. Those dancing lights you see around the world are easy to spot, but you might end up missing a worm on the ground just as easily.

Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be much of a use for catching Bugs in the game as far as we can tell; this is simply a collection activity that you can complete for fun if you feel so inclined.

How to Get a Bug Net in Core Keeper

You can get a Bug Net by Crafting it at the Tin Workbench for 8 Wood and 8 Fiber. A Bug Net does not have any durability, so you'll only need to craft one.
