How to avoid monsters in Lethal Company

You’ll quickly find that some of the monsters are non-hostile or will only attack when provoked in Lethal Company. However, these are few and far between, so here’s how to get away from the worst of the worst.


How to avoid

Baboon Hawk

Do not attack or get too near. They will not be hostile unless provoked.


Look at it briefly to have it run away. However, don’t stare for too long otherwise it will continue to attack.

Bunker Spiders

Keep your distance and stay away from webbed areas.

Circuit Bee

Steal their hive but run away from the inevitable swarm.


Coil-Head will only move when not being looked at. As a group, have one person maintain visuals and back away.

Earth Leviathan

Run in a different direction from where you were going when the Earth Leviathan starts moving beneath you.

Eyeless Dog

Eyeless Dogs are… well… eyeless. So, walk slowly past them at a distance so they don’t hear you.

Forest Keeper

Stand still and stay out of it’s visuals.

Ghost Girl

Only one person will see the Ghost Girl. If you’re that player, get out of there and run away.

Hoarding Bug

They only attack when they have objects stolen. Can be killed with shovels.


Slow moving so can be avoided. Easier to find elevation or to jump over.


Run away while Jester is winding up before skull pops out.


Not hostile.

Roaming Locust

Not hostile.

Snare Flea

Can be hit with shovels. Be sure to keep checking ceilings to see if it is hanging over you.

Spore Lizard

Don’t get too close. Only hostile when approached or provoked.


Dodge charges.
