Subnautica: Below Zero – How to avoid Ice Worm
Including some information about Ice Worm.
What is the Ice Worm?
The Ice Worm is an aggressive leviathan class fauna species that burrows beneath the surface of the ice. They appear to be ambush predators, drawn towards vibrations above them. Ice Worms are exclusively subterranean creatures and do not swim.
Ice Worm Behaviors
The Ice Worm travels about just below the ice’s surface, producing a distinct trail of pushed-up snow accompanied by a jet of steam. It is attracted to noise and vibration and will surface to attack whatever produces these things.
Once it is above ground, it will do a roar before making an attack. If the player or Thumper is a reasonable distance from the Ice Worm, the Ice Worm will lunge at the target. After it has lunged at the player, it will either emerge back out from the ground to make another attack or poke at the player from underground with its horn. If it is closer to the target, it will make one of many close-range attacks.
While tunneling, it can dash at the player, and if it catches them, it will spear them and then fling them into the air before swallowing them whole.
When an Ice Worm enters hunt mode, they rapidly attack the player, using dive attacks, pokes, spear attacks, and whip attacks.
If there is a Snow Stalker in the Arctic Spires, the Ice Worm will eat it.
How to avoid the Ice Worm?
Ice Worms can be avoided through the use of a Thumper.
You can’t kill it.
What is Thumper?
The Thumper is a deployable device that creates loud, pulsing noises to distract Ice Worms. Ice Worms will prioritize the noise coming from Thumpers over other sources of noise, allowing for the player to traverse through Ice Worm territory as loudly as they wish, without drawing attention. The Thumpers have a limited area of effect and lifetime. In the future, Thumpers may allow the use of drills without the
noise attracting worms.
The blueprint for this item is acquired from a Data Box in the Arctic Spires. You can craft it from Fabricator.
