The Snake is a land animal in Stranded Deep. They can be found on any big island.
Description[edit | edit source]
Snakes are aggressive creatures that will attack the player if they get close enough. They usually move, but if approached, they will stop and do rattling noises as a warning to not get close. When the player gets too close, they will bite them and inflict poisoning, which can only be cured by using an antidote. The snake will start fleeing after biting, but will not hesitate to bite again if the player hangs around them.
Snakes can be killed and skinned using a refined knife. Snakes will respawn 7 days after getting killed.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Snakes are small and relatively hard to spot if not on sand, so be aware of their rattling noises. A very effective way to deal with them would be by throwing a single Refined Spear at them, which will kill the snake instantly due to its low health.
All other options would require at least 2 hits, which can put you in danger - if the snake doesn't die after getting hit, it will start chasing the player, meaning they need to be prepared to run away from it. Snakes will not go into the water or on your raft, which can give you a huge advantage.
