Anthropods were burrowing beetles that popped out the ground in groups to attack Ratchet when he least expected it.



In Tools of Destruction, Anthropods are first encountered on Planet Sargasso. Besides Sargasso, Anthropods are also found on the planets Merdegraw, MorklonVapedia and Markazia.

Antropods later appeared on Magnus in 'All 4 One', they can be found in the Terrawatt Forest and on the Phonica Moon.

The Terratropes were often found with Breegus Wasps, which bore resemeblence to the Grubsnuckers, meaning most likely that the Terratrope and Anthropods were related.

However, in All 4 One it could take several blows to finish them off.

The Anthropods on Sargasso were incredibly useful for getting the following skill points (in order):
