The Arachnid Organ is a sticky, dripping mass of mucus-colored tissue, which smells like rotting flesh. Researching it will allow you to learn how to best target the arachnids for maximal damage. The bonus applies to all three types of arachnid. All damage you deal to Arachnids will be increased by 25%.

Researching this item requires Research skill level 1. A small amount of Iridium (Ir) is needed in the process.


  • This item can be studied without learning any Research skill if a charged LabAssistant™ Implant is equipped.
    • Moreover, it is possible to analyze the item at the speed of Research skill level 2, while it's still at level 0!
      This trick is performed by equipping the LabAssistant™, starting the research and then unequipping the Implant. Furthermore, the Implant's energy storage will not be consumed if the trick is done fast enough.
