The weakest and most undeveloped of the Araknid species. Nevertheless, it is unwise to let them get close to you. They are believed to have been hatched from eggs lain by the Heavy Araknid. When any light araknid gets exposed to a beam emitted by the Artifact, they mutate into Medium Araknids. The eggs containing them can be found around the Hell research outpost where upon detection of nearby creatures release these newly awakened Araknids. Despite being weak, they are very fast and very small.
It is best to destroy the eggs before they hatch. The very best way to defeat them would be to use the flame thrower or a rapid fire weapon.
