Spiderants are a common bug in Borderlands, they appear first in Rust Commons West.
They have similar tactics to Skags but a new strategy is required to kill them: shoot them in front with a strong weapon, then shoot them in the back. Spiderants almost always are hiding within the ground, unseen to the eye until it is too late. If one is unlucky enough to be driving his vehicle and one pops up under him, it will do a good deal of damage to said vehicle. If one is on their second playthrough, it will destroy the vehicle instantly.
Spiderants take minimal damage to the front, its critical strike point being the thorax on the back of the body. Shooting this will cause the Spiderant to rear back, and works on all forms of the beast. They generally come in groups of 5+ and tend to form in semi-circles or full circles, attempting to get full surrounds on people. Look specifically under small bodies of water and conspicuous patches of dirt.
