The Carminite Broodling is a type of mob that spawns in Dark Towers in the Twilight Forest. They are a re-skinned version of the Swarm Spider which has also been buffed and had its spawn location changed. They have over twice the health of Swarm Spiders (whereas Swarm Spiders have 1.5 hearts, Broodlings have 3.5 hearts) and deal twice the damage, and whereas Swarm Spiders are only capable of doing damage to the player when there is a large swarm of them, the Broodling can deal damage even if there is only one Broodling.

As with Swarm Spiders, Carminite Broodlings do not poison the player as Cave Spiders do. However, they retain the size of a Cave Spider, posing a threat to unobservant players or when the player is exploring areas with dark floors, as the Carminite Broodling can go undetected by the player and cause a fair amount of damage. However, it is more dangerous when the Carminite Broodling pushes the player towards another, more dangerous enemy, such as the Carminite Golem, as a Carminite Broodling alone is very rarely enough to bring down a player. Even a player with Leather Armor can most likely survive an attack by one or more Broodlings.


  • In earlier versions of the TF mod (1.15.2 to 1.15.3) the Carminite Broodling was known as the Redscale Broodling and had a much different texture. In current versions of the mod (1.15.4, not yet found in FTB Ultimate or any other pack) the Broodling is now known as the Carminite Broodling.
  • Although its name has been changed, it is still referred to in the mod's code as "EntityTFTowerBroodling".
