The Pod Spider is a tiny metal head that appears in Jak 3.
The Pod spider is a small eight-legged metal head with a tall bright orange pod on its back. Exactly what purpose it serves remains unclear.
Pod spiders always appear in large swarms by burrowing out from the ground. If the player is inside a vehicle, then they will attempt to latch on to it and attack the driver, but will simply bite at Jak if on foot.
The pod spider relies on strength in numbers, and will easily swarm their target if they are not swiftly dealt with. If enough pod spiders are killed, more will be summoned from the ground.
Pod spiders are not incredibly fast, but in the locations where they appear, they will be able to appear anywhere on ground level. Jump to higher ground or use other methods to stay in the air as much as possible.
When driving a vehicle or using the Jet Board, Jak will simply plow through them, although those that can latch on will be able to cause damage. When on foot, the most ideal weapons are either the Needle Lazer, or Wave Concussor.
