Antlion Swarmers are flying enemies that spawn in the Underground Desert. They can spawn on the surface if a pit is present. Unlike their name, they don't have enough numbers to "swarm" players.

Attack Patterns

The Antlion Swarmer flies around in an area and heads towards the player once visible, causing contact damage by flying into the player.


  • Like Antlion Larvae, Antlion Swarmers are real insects. However, they themselves are called Antlions and their larvae are Antlion Larvae.
  • Antlion Swarmers are similar to Swarmer Ants, which are flying ants that can infest a household.
  • They make more aggressive Antlion noises compared to others so they have a unique sound.
