Duggies Stardew Valley: Tips, Tricks, and Strategies

We are all fascinated and yet easily scared by monsters, especially those monsters which are known to launch sudden attacks on you from the underground. Yes, you read that right. This is what the Duggies do in the mines in Stardew Valley. 

What Are Duggies In Stardew Valley?

Stardew Valley has its fair share of monsters, with exceptional skills. One of these monsters is the Duggies and these are known for attacking people from the underground! They are mobs and usually attack people by popping out from under the ground. Once they have spread terror, they go back into the soil they came out of, leaving a visible hole in the ground. 

Duggies in stardew valley are of three types- regular, dangerous and magma Duggies. 

Now, let us talk about how to kill these Duggies and earn rewards and how to prevent getting attacked by these bug-like monsters.

Where Can You Farm Duggies In Stardew Valley?

When it comes to finding the Duggies, you won’t encounter them all together. The regular Duggies can be found from six to the 29th floors of the Mines. As you progress in the game and activate the Shrine of Challenge or begin the Danger in the Deep Quest, you will start to find the dangerous Duggies, again from the first to 29th floors of the area. 

Magma Duggies are trickier. While they only come when you reach the Volcano Dungeon, they don’t stay confined to a particular floor. You can encounter them anywhere so you need to be on your guard at all times. 

The trick to escaping these attacks by the Duggies is to be on the move at all times. You have to be quicker than them and move before they can attack you and use your sword to prevent their hits. You can also hide in their hole and wait for them to go back. 

What Can You Get From Duggies?

While it is not easy to fight these little buggers and deal with their sudden attacks, when you defeat them, you get rewarded which sweetens the deal a little bit. In the table below are some items listed which teach types of these Duggies might drop when you defeat them-
