The spear-wielding Cavedweller, a battle-oriented variation of the default Cavedweller, is a non-playable character and possible enemies found in Fear & Hunger.


Adorned in tribal paint and wielding ritual spears etched with primal carvings, these Cavedewellers seem to have taken on the duty of safeguarding both the Cube of the Depths nestled within their village and, quite possibly, the village itself.

Location and behaviour

There are only two spear-wielding Cavedwellers in the game, also located at their village: one of them in Level 6 - Mines and the second inside a hut in Level 6 - Altar of darkness, guarding the Cube of the Depths.

Like their less battle-oriented counterparts, they do not attack unless the player either:

  • interrupts the fight between them and D'arce (required to recruit her as a party member)
  • interrupts intercourse between two Cavedwellers found in a small house
  • attacks one of them while they remain peaceful
  • picks up the Cube of the Depths

Doing any of these actions will cause the entire Cavedweller village hostile against the player and attack on sight. The Cube of the Depths is an exception - they will not become angered if the player picks it up while they wear the Stone crown.

One must be aware that there is a 10% chance on each start of a playthrough that the Cavedwellers will be dead, massacred by Moonless Guards that are now the habitants of the village and walk around aimlessly.

  • Note: HP in parenthesis is only used for Damage-over-Time calculations.


The head, torso, and ritual spear parts of this particular variation of Cavedweller take 20% increased damage from the Slashing damage type, while their legs take a 25% increase of the same damage type.

They wield a spear, which can cause bleeding and poison effects, and are able to Tackle once their arms have been cut off. They are much more relentless, but still not particularly difficult to defeat.

Like regular Cavedwellers, cutting their feet will not make them lose balance. Instead, the player has to cut their genitals to make the head easy to reach.


In combat:

  • If talked to:
    • You try talking some sense to this monstrosity...
    • Player: "What is your origin?"
      • The cavedweller seems to mime something to you. He is pointing his finger at his chest and then towards you.
    • Player: "There is no need for killing."
      • The cavedweller seems to mime something to you.
      • He raises his arms furiously. Aggression and killing intent eminates from the primal cavedweller!
    • Player: "Please don't!"
      • The cavedweller seems to mime something to you. He points at his throat with slicing motion.
    • Player: "Prepare to die."
      • The cavedweller just stares at you with primal hate.
