This is where the Bugmaster has lived for hundreds of years...

Nobody knows what he is or where he came from...

But what we do know is.. those that do find him never come back.

–Skeleton Player Characters

Arach is the home of the Bugmaster. This is one of the most dangerous zones in Kenshi because of how frequently groups of Skin Spiders spawn.

Arach has no Major Towns. There are no Nests or Camps set to spawn in this area.

These locations show up on the map, although the player cannot interact with anything at this location.

Homeless Spawns[edit | edit source]

It is very likely for a group of 1 to 10 Skin Spiders to spawn in Arach. There is a 1/6 chance of a large group of Skin Spiders to spawn. The large group can contain 20 to 30 spiders.
