Bugsnax | How to catch a Snaquiri

In the hunt to fill up the Bugsnax catalog, players will need to capture a Snaquiri. This loud, squealing creature leaps in and out of the Simmering Springs ocean before dropping back down underground. It needs to be caught mid-leap. Here’s how to catch a Snaquiri in Bugsnax:

To catch Snaquiri in Bugsnax, players need to place the Snak Trap below where it is flying. This interrupts the Snaquiri in mid-air, stunning it and allowing the player to capture it.

The Snaquiri that jumps in and out of the Simmering Sands geyser is the easiest to catch this way. It’s also possible to capture the ones in the ocean using this method, but it is more challenging.

Those finding the task of capturing the Snaquiri difficult can always wait until later in the game when new items have been unlocked. The Tripwire is great for knocking a Snaquiri out of the air.

It can be tricky to work out how to catch the Snaquiri using the in-game hint alone, which offers this tip:

“Leaps in and out of the ocean. Needs to be caught mid-leap.”

In order to place the trap correctly, players must note the drop patch of the Snaquiri. The creature’s shadow can sometimes make this difficult, so it’s important to pay close attention to where the tip of its umbrella sticks out of the ground. Wait for it to fly up, then activate the trap with R2/RT/left-click.

Once a trap is placed, the player will need to move away for the Snaquiri to start flying again. However, don’t go too far, as it will need to be caught in the net before it recovers.

Now that the Snaquiri has been caught, players will likely be wondering how long it takes to beat Bugsnax. For those completing the Bugapedia catalog, that could be a while!

While the Snaquiri loves jumping, other creatures remain in the air by flying. Thankfully, there’s a Game Revolution guide detailing how to capture flying Bugsnax.

Game Revolution’s Bugsnax review described the game as “short, sweet, and strange,” ultimately scoring it a 3/5. Read the full review here.
