Description[edit | edit source]
Whale sharks can be identified by their blueish body coloration along with the white dots scattered on them. It is also noticeably bigger than all other sharks except The Meg. Whale sharks are passive - they will never attack the player, although they can still flip their raft if the player isn't careful. They can only be found swimming in the open sea. If damaged enough, it has a chance of running away to avoid death.
If killed, it will slowly sink.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Almost no strategy is required due to them being harmless. Crude spears are highly recommended due to them being cheap and most of the time doing a great job at killing them. Refined spears get the job done as well, although they demand more resources and can be easily lost if the shark decides to flee. Melee weapons and tools can be used, but consuming a shark repellent beforehand is recommended to avoid other sharks.
The main problem the player can have while fighting is the whale shark fleeing, fortunately, it is often seen eventually returning to the player.
