If you have been playing Dave the Diver, chances are you have encountered Jellyfish and have no idea how you can catch them. You are not alone. Jellyfish seem to be immune to regular damage. In this Dave the Diver guide, we go over how you can catch Jellyfish.


How to Catch Jellyfish in Dave the Diver

Jellyfish are one of the most challenging fish to catch in Dave the Diver. They are immune to physical damage, which means you can’t catch them with a harpoon or gun. Instead, you’ll need to use special weapons that render them defenseless. The two best weapons for catching jellyfish are the Net Gun and the Tranquilizer Gun.

The Net Gun

The Net Gun is the best weapon for catching jellyfish in Dave the Diver. It fires a net at your target, which immobilizes the jellyfish and makes it easier to catch. To get the Net Gun, you’ll need to find it in a weapon chest or craft it yourself. You can craft a permanent Net Gun by finding three blueprints of the weapon and purchasing it from Duff’s Weapon Shop.

The Tranquilizer Gun

The Tranquilizer Gun is another good option for catching jellyfish in Dave the Diver. It fires a dart that tranquilizes the jellyfish, making it easier to catch. The Tranquilizer Gun is only available from Chapter Two onwards, starting with the Hush Dart. You can find it in a weapon chest or craft it by finding the necessary materials.

Best Strategies for Catching Jellyfish

Catching jellyfish in Dave the Diver requires more than just the right weapons. You’ll need to have a solid strategy in place to increase your catch and avoid getting damaged by the jellyfish.

Upgrade Your EquipmentBefore you start hunting for jellyfish, it’s essential to upgrade your equipment. Upgrading your harpoon and gun will make it easier to catch other fish and monsters, freeing up more time to focus on catching jellyfish. You’ll also want to upgrade your diving suit and oxygen tank to stay underwater for longer periods.
Use the Right BaitUsing the right bait can also increase your chances of catching jellyfish. Some jellyfish are attracted to specific types of bait, so it’s a good idea to experiment with different baits to see which ones work best.

How to Prepare for Jellyfish Events

Jellyfish events can be very profitable, but they can also be very challenging. To prepare for these events, you’ll need to stock up on jellyfish and upgrade your equipment. You’ll also want to make sure you have enough staff to handle the influx of customers.

During jellyfish events, it’s essential to keep an eye on your Wasabi level. Wasabi is used to boost your customers’ happiness, which can increase your profits. Make sure you have enough Wasabi on hand to keep your customers happy.
