The Acid Crawler is a large recurring opponent and one of three alien sandworms encountered in Broforce. Like the Broodworm and the Terrorkrawler, the Acid Crawler only appears at certain points in the game.
The Acid Crawler acts as a recurring mid-boss in the game. When encountered, players are tasked with taking out the creature. The crawler will proceed to spew torrents of acid towards the Bro in an effort to dissolve them - each acid glob splits into three separate smaller clumps after contact with a solid object is made. Like other sandworms, the Acid Crawler is not protected against grenades thrown in its mouth. It can alternatively be dispatched by firing at it from underground, where its acid attack is rendered temporarily ineffective for a longer period due to the terrain shielding the Bro.
- The Acid Crawler's sandworm nature may be a reference to either the sandworms from the Dune universe or the Graboids from the Tremors film and TV series.
- The crawler may also be a reference to the mid-boss of the final mission of the original Contra video game.
- The basis for the crawler's design bears a resemblance to the Xenomorphs of the Alien film series.
