    There are 46 grubs scattered throughout the world. They are trapped in a glass jar and many require upgrades (Mantis Claw/Crystal Core/Monarch Wings) to be able to reach.

    When one is close by you will hear it babbling. Breaking the jar will cause it to burrow into the ground and return to the Grubfather, who will give you a reward for each grub you rescue. This achievement will unlock after rescuing all 46 of them.

    The full list of grubs and rewards can be found here.

    You can use this fully interactive map to see all grub locations. Use the control panel on the right to uncheck everything but "grubs" and/or toggle to the in-game version of the map.
