Skinny Mutants, also known as Skinny Cannibals are a type of mutant that was added in update v0.01 to The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Skinny mutants are the second main faction of mutants, the other being the Regular Mutants. They are more aggressive and more hostile than Regular Mutants, and will immediately attack the player unprovoked as they are hostile from the beginning of the game. Skinny Mutants are distinguishable from Regular Mutants as they are much skinnier, smaller, are covered in blood and dirt, do not wear clothes of any sort, and will move on both arms and legs. They are faster than Regular Mutants, but are weaker in both health and attack damage. The patch notes for v0.54 indicate they can only carry sticks, rather than actual weapons.

Skinny Mutants are separate from the regular mutants, perhaps due to being runts or from being exiled from a mutant tribe. Unlike other mutants, skinny mutants will be drawn to dead/ incapacitated mutants and animal corpses (even in the midst of battle) and will begin to eat them, displaying their hunger. They can be seen cooperating with other mutants, but are often hostile towards them as well as the player. Skinny mutants can easily turn on their stronger counterparts if provoked, and the player can exploit this by making a skinny mutant hit another mutant by accident or vice versa. Eating a live mutant will result in one of two outcomes: Either the victim scurries away and gets "revived", or the victim continues to get eaten. If a victim has survived a cannibalization attempt, they will be revived and have a different model, which shows their rib cage split open.

Skinny mutants patrol during the day and night, either on their own or in a group of up to 5. These patrols are very disorganized compared to regular mutants: moving in patrols seems to be much more of a group-scramble with no visible leader than a planned route of patrol, and will not use any source of light.
