Get Some Grub

Squish every antlion grub in Episode Two.   

Just find all these little guys and shoot or smash them. There is about 333 of these guys so look in every nook or cranny or lockers. They make a buzzing noise if there is one near by. There are 93 Antlion Grubs in Chapter 1 and 240 Antlion Grubs in Chapter 2. We aren't going to list them all but here are what totals you should have.

-When you get to the Vortigaunt saving Alyx I had 93 grubs

-When you get to the weighted elevator I had 142 grubs

-When you get to the elevator with the Thumper I had 226 grubs

-When you get to the Acid-Lion guard (where the guard is first able to kill you) I had 263

The last grub is after the vortigaunts heal alyx.

The guide definitely helped get all the grubs. I always missed one or two.

Okay guys, I thought I should point out that if you're only getting 92 grubs once you get to the sentry-antlion stand off with the vortigaunt healing Alyx. You probably didn't find the one near the beginning in a locker. It makes no noise and you have to open the locker with the X button. Besides that all grubs are pretty much in the open, just remember to look up down, behind things, check web caches. If you're still having trouble just google a kind, almost all first page results are pretty good.

If you are doing this and also trying to do the Rocket Man achievement, you can leave the gnome by Alyx while she is laid out on the table because it will still be there when you return to her and pick it up then.

Ew. Ew ew ew ew ew. Grubs disgust me. And noise these made when you walked over them made me cringe a little.

But thanks to #1 & #8. I missed the one in the locker at the start (dirty trick), the high two in the room where the vortigaunt stuns the antlions, and 3 other random ones I can't figure out. Following the guide it seemed like I got all of them except those 3.

So perhaps the takeaway is if you step on a group of 3, confirm you actually got all 3.
