Cult of the Lamb, the mesmerizing and eerie action-adventure title developed by Massive Monster, has already captivated the gaming community with its dark and whimsical world, where players build and manage their own cults. But with the arrival of the Spider Skull, a recently added event item, the game has become even more enticing.

This unique addition to the Cult of the Lamb universe is more than just an in-game collectible; it represents a crossover between Cult of the Lamb and another popular title, Don’t Starve Together. Read on to find out more about the Spider Skull in Cult of the Lamb and its significance to your cult!

Spider Skull in Cult of the Lamb Explained

If you’re an avid Critter-catcher in Cult of the Lamb, then you may have noticed a strange drop from one of your prey. If you happen to kill the right Critter at night in Cult of the Lamb, you may just end up with a strange new decoration: a Spider Skull.

Unlike normal decorations, however, you can pick up and carry the Spider Skull around your base with you, and you don’t have to construct it (nor can you construct another one). If this struck you as strange, then you’re correct. This special skull isn’t just a new decoration!

The Spider Skull is a new item that was added to the game in the “Cult of the Lamb x Don’t Starve Together Crossover” update. This item allows players to summon Webber from the Don’t Starve Together game.

Once the Spider Skull is used, Webber will appear in the game in his follower form, and will immediately join your cult. Additionally, you’ll also unlock multiple Don’t Starve-themed base decorations as well!

How to Use the Spider Skull in Cult of the Lamb

Using the Spider Skull to summon Webber in Cult of the Lamb is a lot easier than you think! The process isn’t made clear in the beginning, but you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out, especially if you happen to have a lot of body pits in your base.

All you need to do to summon Webber with the Spider Skull in Cult of the Lamb is to drop the skull into an empty body pit. That’s it! As soon as you bury the Spider Skull, Webber will pop out of the pit in a furious flurry of spiders. (A handful of these spiders will, consequently, follow him everywhere in your base.)

Once you’ve summoned Webber, he’ll automatically join your cult. Additionally, you’ll unlock numerous Don’t Starve-themed base decorations, as well as a new Webber follower form!

Of course, if you don’t want any of these rewards (for whatever reason), then you can always just keep the Spider Skull in your base as a cute little decoration instead.

The Spider Skull represents not just an in-game item but a bridge between two beloved gaming universes. If you happen to be a fan of both of these eerie titles, then you’ve come to the right place!
