When you’re done catching Bugsnax in Garden Grove, Flavor Falls, Simmering Springs, it is time to move on to Scorched Gorge. This is another key location where you can find Bugsnax to add to your collection. In this guide, we will go through everything you need to know on how to find and catch all Bugsnax in Scorched Gorge.


What Is Scorched Gorge

Scorched Gorge, a dry canyon area in Bugsnax, is a fascinating and challenging terrain that offers a unique gaming experience. This area is home to a variety of Bugsnax, each with its own distinct characteristics and behaviors. What sets Scorched Gorge apart is the presence of Bugsnax that are on fire, adding an extra layer of difficulty to the game. To catch these fiery creatures, players need to use nearby water sources to douse the flames before attempting to catch them.

But the challenges don’t stop there. Scorched Gorge is also home to the hyper-aggressive Spuddy, a creature that can open up new areas on the map, revealing even more Bugsnax to collect. This dynamic makes Scorched Gorge a significant location in Bugsnax, as it introduces new elements and challenges that test the players’ skills and strategies.

Moreover, Scorched Gorge is where players can acquire the Lunchpad from Cromdo, a Grumpus on the map. The Lunchpad is a game-changing tool that opens up a whole new realm of possibilities for catching Bugsnax, particularly those that fly. With the Lunchpad, players can reach new heights and catch Bugsnax that were previously out of reach.

How Find and Catch Bugsnax in Scorched Gorge

NameHow to Catch
BBQ BungerTo catch a BBQ Bunger, place the Lunchpad in its path to launch it down to the lower level. Then, lead it to a Spuddy. When the Spuddy charges at the Bunger, it will be stunned, allowing you to pick it up.
CheepoofTo catch a Cheepoof, launch the Snak Trap at them with a Launchpad and then close the trap to finalize the capture.
Crystal SweetieflyTo catch a Crystal Sweetiefly, use the Lunchpad to launch your Snak Trap at it while it’s asleep. If it notices the Snak Trap while it’s awake, it will flee.
Green Peelbug To catch a Green Peelbug, you need to find a pair of connected tunnel entrances. Place the Snak Trap on one side and send a Buggy Ball through the other side. The Buggy Ball will flush the Peelbug into your trap.
PoptickFirst, you need to puff up a Poptick with heat. Cover it in hot sauce, and a nearby Scorpenyo will shoot it with flames. When it pops, use chocolate or cheese sauce to lure it to the Snak Trap.
Puffy SnakpodJust pick it up, no need for any tools.
RibblepedeAttract Ribblepedes down from the walls and ceilings using hot sauce from your Sauce Slinger. Once they’re on the ground, lead them into your Snak Trap.
ScorpenyoTo catch a Scorpenyo, you need to extinguish its flames. You can do this by luring it into the shallow water in the gorge using cheese. Once the Scorpenyo is out of the water, you can scoop it up.
Shy WeenywormShy Weenyworms hate ketchup. Cover the Snak Trap with ketchup and place it on the ground. The Shy Weenyworms will charge at the trap, allowing you to catch them before they knock your trap away.
SpuddySpuddies will charge at any entity they see. Use this to your advantage by luring two Spuddies close enough that they see each other.You can use a Bug Net to pick up a Spuddy that gets attacked by another.
Sweet FryderSet up your Snak Trap across the gap using the Lunchpad you got from Cromdo. When the Sweet Fryder walks into the trap, trigger it. The trap will be pushed off by the windmill wind.
