The Lurker Beetle is an enemy from Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy VII. It is one of the more difficult and powerful Lurkers. It is colored black and red, with a few sets of pointed legs and a prod at the front which it uses to ram Jak and Daxter. Usually, it attacks by slashing with its two front claws. It's one of the fastest opponents in the game, and it has a very tight defense and balanced stance. To properly fight this creature, get in the position for it to use a prod attack, then ground pound the prod when it sticks it forwards. This will catapult the beetle behind you, doing big damage. Then you can finish it off. Otherwise, attack it from behind when it uses its prod.
