The Mutant Bug Lair is an underground location that becomes accessible as part of the Dark Talisman Quest. The entrance to the lair is in the northwest corner of The Sewers.

The player should be prepared to encounter monsters before entering the Mutant Bug Lair because there are a number of Mutant Grubs and Mutant Flies inside.

Even though plants are growing here and fishing is possible, the game considers this location to be underground. Therefore, forageable items and artifact spots never spawn here.

Dark Talisman The Wizard asked me to retrieve the magic ink from his ex-wife's house... but to gain access I'll need a dark talisman. Enter the sewer and ask Krobus about the dark talisman. Enter the Railroad area after completing the Community Center Bundles or the Joja Community Development Form. Speak to Krobus to gain entrance to the Mutant Bug Lair, then retrieve the Dark Talisman. Return to the Railroad area and place the Dark Talisman on the artifact blocking the cave.


Fishing Zones in the Mutant Bug Lair

The Slimejack is a unique fish that can only be caught by fishing in the Mutant Bug Lair. Carp, Green Algae, and White Algae are also possible. The available fish are the same year-round.

Fishing here is especially dangerous because Mutant Flies continuously spawn and attack the player.
