The first hunting challenge is killing three spiders. I seem to have killed one earlier, no idea how that happened, I didn't even see the thing. But the second one I saw, i ran up to it, tried to smash it with my sword, tried to stand on it, did a dance all over it. But it refused to die.

What do I need to do in order to get this evil creature to die a quick death? None of my orc killing skills (or lack thereof) seems to do anything.

You can kill spiders by either shooting them, or just stepping on them. You probably accidentally stepped on one earlier. Just run over a spider, and he'll die with a nice, satisfying crunch. (or you can shoot him with your bow, but that seems excessive, no?)

  • I'll try my dance of "I am terrible at stepping on a specific spot" again.

  • I found using focus to shoot them with the bow the easiest. Same with a couple of later hunting challenges.

    @Eben "a couple of later hunting challenges"? I think challenge 4 (Mordor Rats) is the only other one that you have the alternative to kill with a mere step. Having stepped on multiple Graugs, I can attest they are unaffected.

  • Using focus with the bow was the "same with" portion
