North of the river
4 Lizard Skin
4 Generic Meat
1 Crocodile Head
Easy to miss on the ground. Their bite is near-lethal for an unprepared player.

Crocodiles are hostile animals that can be found scattered around the northern parts of the river that flows through the peninsula, though they will almost never be found in the water. They drop 4 lizard skin and 4 generic meat if killed, along with their head that can be used for decoration. Crocodiles have one of the rarest spawn rates of all huntable animals.

Location[edit | edit source]

Crocodiles can be found in the area around the river in the northern half of the peninsula. They can be easy to miss due to their colour and their tendency to lay still on the ground waiting for prey, which makes them even more dangerous to hunt.

They are also found in the cannibal village near the lakes at the river's source, most notably the so-called crocodile village.

Hunting[edit | edit source]

Being near a crocodile is enough to make them aggressive to the player. A crocodile attacks by running towards the player, then thrusting itself forward a few meters and smashing their strong jaws. Their weakness is their relatively slow speed before charging and their inferior maneuverability.

If the player flees, the crocodile will chase them for a good distance at a fast pace. Their bite will deal damage equivalent to well over half of the player's maximum health, regardless of armor worn. Despite their surprising amount of speed, the player can outrun them, so it is best to flee if they charge. However, often they will behave more skittishly, simply running away when approached, making their behavior somewhat unpredictable. Though they must turn to attack the player with their mouth only, they do so quite fast, so it is recommended to hit them repeatedly and quickly from the tail end to minimize the chance of being bitten. Crocodiles are quite durable compared to most other animals on the peninsula, taking multiple hits to kill.

It takes 2 Flintlock Pistol rounds, 3 hits from the modern axe, katana or upgraded spear, 3 regular arrows[confirmation needed], or 5-6 hits with a regular stick to kill a crocodile. you can also use 1 molotov instantly killing the crocodile

  • The player can stand on top of crocodiles, though if the crocodile starts moving, the player will fall off.
