Grub Hide is one of the most useful resources in Obsidian’s Grounded. It can be used to create a variety of useful equipment including the Grub Vest, Larva Blade, and Weevil Shield – among other things.
When you first start playing Grounded it may not be too clear where you need to go to get Grub Hide. Don’t worry – the process of finding and harvesting grubs is relatively straightforward as long as you’re prepared.
Be warned, though – on your journey to find Grub Hide, unless you’re playing in Arachnophobia Mode you’ll bump into spiders and other dangerous bugs.
How to get Grub Hide in Grounded
To find Grub Hide in Grounded, you need to dig up grubs which burrow in the mud around the large acorn tree. The tree can be identified thanks to its red and yellow leaves.
You’ll see the grubs shuffling around in the dirt, but unless you have the Acorn Shovel you won’t be able to get them out of the muck. To craft the Acorn Shovel, you’ll first need to crack acorns apart to get Acorn Pieces using your Hammer.
The acorn tree isn’t accessible at the start of the game, and you won’t be able to craft the Acorn Shovel without the proper tools. If you haven’t seen the tree yet, you’ll need to progress further in Grounded’s main story before you can get Grub Hide.
Beware Grounded’s spiders and bugs
Grub Hide will help you to stand up to tough foes in Grounded, but getting hold of it isn’t a piece of cake. The area near the acorn tree is a hunting ground for spiders and other tough creepy crawlies that can ruin your day if you’re not careful.
Thus, if you’re not sure that you’re well-equipped enough to survive a spider attack, you might want to think twice about looking for grubs. Of course, if you’re playing in Arachnophobia Mode, things won’t be quite as intense, but you’ll still want to be careful.
Once you’ve got your hands on enough Grub Hide, you’ll be able to craft a variety of items to help you progress in Grounded.
