Animals are found in fields and forests. Some animals are easily killed with a single bullet. A killed animal can be gutted with a Hunting Knife, providing Raw Meat. Raw meat can then be turned into Cooked Meat using a Fireplace.
Dead animal bodies despawn automatically after 2 minutes.
Animals that can be found are:
|Animal type||Quanity of meat||Total blood points (raw)||Total blood points (cooked)|
|Mod:Rabbit||2 meat||200 blood||1000 blood|
|Chicken||2 meat||200 blood||1000 blood|
|Goat||4 meat||100 blood||400 blood|
|Boar||4 meat||150 blood||400 blood|
|Sheep||4 meat||100 blood||400 blood|
|Cow||6 meat||100 blood||600 blood|
Eating raw meat significantly lowers the amount of blood regenerated and run the risk of contracting an infection.
