In small burrows carved into the sand, the larvae of the beach tiger beetles lie in wait. When a suitable prey item wanders too close to their lair - such as an ant - they rush out with frightening speed and grab the hapless victim.

These may be the younger form of the adult beetles, but even in their juvenile form they are just as deadly. In Empires of the Undergrowth, tiger beetle larvae will appear in the beach levels (2.1 Rising Tide and 2.2 Queen of the Hill) in its special challenge mode. Coming soon!

Are they unkillable or ar they killable but give you not much food like the cricket?

would we consider them stronger or weaker than an adult devils coach beetle

They'll be killable but there's a bit of tactics involved, and there will be some necessary sacrifices.

We haven't tweaked the numbers properly on how strong they will be but once we come to testing we'll have a better idea of what's a good challenge without making them too annoying.

So they will become a kind of funnel web but more powerful ?

I guess there's some similarities but they're far, far quicker. Have a look at this video of someone "fishing" for tiger beetle larvae to see how fast they can move!
