The Boar is a land animal in Stranded Deep. They can be found on any big island.

Description[edit | edit source]

The boar is a fast passive creature, so it won't harm the player. If the player is seen going near the boar, it will attempt to flee. The bigger and stronger alternative is the Hog, which can be considered to be a parent of the Boar.

The player can kill and skin the boar using a refined knife. Boars respawn 7 days after getting killed.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Since it is a passive creature, the player can kill it with any tool or weapon without worrying too much about the approach. Its only strength is speed, which is very slightly slower than the player's sprinting speed, sometimes making it rather difficult to catch.

A non-complicated way of dealing with it would be repeating this technique until it is dead: shoot or throw a spear at it from stealth and then carefully follow it until it stops fleeing. If you like a more active approach - chase it and use melee weapons on it. The player should watch out for nearby snakes since a boar can lead them into one while being chased.
