Bugs are found on planets of all types. They can be collected either by using a Bug Net, which will place them inside a placeable jar in players inventory, or a Relocator which can release them to fly around again. Bugs captured using a net cannot be released from their jar again.
The first, Bug Tracker, is awarded after players catch their first bug. The second, Bug Free, is awarded after capturing 42 different bugs.
|Bug Tracker||Capture your first bug with a bug net.
Esther would be proud.
|Collect a bug using a bug net.|
|Bug Free||Catch 42 unique bugs.
Give them all funny names.
|Collect 42 bugs using a bug net.|
After capturing a new bug a notification will appear at the bottom of the screen, announcing they've completed a collection entry. That bug jar will then appear inside the Collections Library window, with a description which appears when moused over.
Since the requirements for the Bugs collection and the achievement 'Bug Free' are the same it's an easy way to track progress towards the achievement.
