Plated Clawbugs are the upgraded version of the Clawbug, becoming available when the player has a level of 3 in Create Clawbug.
The Plated Clawbug has a higher base level than the Clawbug. As well, it has 10 action points instead of 8, allowing it to attack twice in the same turn, if it does not use up its action points by moving. Plated Clawbugs do not inflict poison when they attack in any Geneforge game.
Their appearance is also darker than that of the Clawbug.
