  • This ability got reworked into the current Spawn Spiderite in the 5.65 gameplay patch.
  • This ability is on autocast by default. The Spiderling automatically casts this on nearby enemy units which do not have the debuff already.
  • Launches a projectile towards the target, which travels at a speed of 1200.
  • Upon Broodmother's release in 5.62, instead of spawning Spiderites, this ability spawned another Spiderling, which also had this ability.
  • Also upon release, this ability, together with Spawn Spiderlings were castable on allied and even own units.
