Crawls along walls and roofs, spitting burning venom at anything that passes by.

They can be hard to spot as they flitter in and out of the darkness. Watch for their glowing eyes.

Deephunters are enemies in Hollow Knight. They are many-legged creatures who spit burning venom at intruders.[1][2]

Behaviour and Tactics

Crawls along walls and roofs, spitting burning blobs of venom at the Knight once in range. They are often found in places where the terrain and the hazards make them difficult to reach and kill.

Their eyes glow brightly and they release a screech when they have locked onto the Knight and are about to spit their acid bolt, giving them away even in darkness.
