Giant Beetle
The bettles


The Lost Land

Average height:

1-2 feet tall


Large, black body, and yellow eyes.


The Giant Beetles are abnormally large beetles that appear in Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. These large beetles attack by jumping at the player. One is easy to kill, but they can be quite annoying in groups. The player can detect them coming by the clicking sound they make.


These appear to look much like oversized beetles. They are black, have six legs, and have large yellow eyes. Their blood is the same shade as their eyes, a bright gold in coloration, with the same viscosity as other enemies' blood.


In gameplay, these enemies are simply a nuisance and are a simple one-shot kill with any weapon on hand.

In the Hardcore difficulty mode introduced in Night Dive Studios' HD remaster, the Giant Beetles are of no greater threat to the player and can easily killed with a single slash of the Knife.
