Below, we'll teach you how to get Rhino Beetles in Staxel.

As stated above, Rhino Beetles are incredibly hard to find. This can prove to be truly frustrating, especially for players looking to craft a Baitbox.

What are Rhino Beetles? Well, they’re bugs (as their name denotes) whose scarcity in Staxel is due to an error in the game’s programming.

While the developer works to fix this Rhino Beetle scarcity via an upcoming patch, it’s worth noting that there are still two surefire ways to get Rhino Beetles in Staxel. 

Rhino Beetles can be found on the sides of trees in Staxel.

First, you can try and hunt down Rhino Beetles by grabbing a net and searching the sides of trees. Rhino Beetles will spawn at random, and if you highlight them with your net, you’ll be able to add them to your inventory.

A current player theory is that Rhino Beetles spawn on trees more frequently when it’s raining, but this has yet to be explicitly confirmed. As such, it’s worth heading out into the world of Staxel and searching the trees if you have the time.

Another way to get Rhino Beetles in Staxel is a bit of a workaround suggested by the game’s developers. By entering Creative Mode, you can manually spawn Rhino Beetles in Staxel.

Another way to get Rhino Beetles in Staxel is by enabling Creative Mode.

To do this, use the commands “/enablecheats” and “/creative” to open up Creative Mode in Staxel. Then, you can increase the spawn rate of Rhino Beetles.

By following the two methods above, you should eventually be able to gather enough Rhino Beetles and craft your Baitbox. In the meantime, stay tuned for developer updates as they work to fix the decreased Rhino Beetle spawn rate in Staxel.
