Iron Spiders are robotic animals from the Old Machines faction. They are the weaker version of Security Spiders and are usually roaming the wilderness instead of guarding Labs and Armouries.

They can be found in regions which are primarily inhabited by Skeletons such as the Floodlands and the Deadlands. They can also be found in The Iron Trail which is named for their presence. Locations where Iron Spiders roam are usually decorated by many inactive Iron Spiders (at Ashlands, Deadlands, Forbidden Isle, The Iron Trail and Venge) which make it difficult to determine whether characters are about to approach a functioning one which is sleeping.

They're equipped with maiming devices and tend to attack living things indiscriminately. While they won't eat your unconscious body, their maimers are easily capable of ensuring most lightly armoured characters downed by them will die of their wounds without help.
