Overview[edit | edit source]
Butchering refers to the activity of Harvesting human or animal carcasses while wielding an appropriate Butcher Tool in order to obtain various bonus resources such as Raw Meat, Rotting Flesh, Animal Fat, Leather, Feathers, or Nitrate Powder. Resources are extracted from carcasses as they are damaged and/or destroyed by your Butchering efforts.
Butcher Tools[edit | edit source]
While Harvesting carcasses can be done using any non-Butcher Tool, doing so results in minimal resource extraction for your efforts. Typically, only 1-2 Large Bones will be harvested. Equipping a Butcher Tool will speed up the process of destroying the carcass you are harvesting while providing access to the bonus resources that it contains. Butcher Tools used on fresh carcasses will do 4 times its Entity Damage to the corpse, and the Butcher Tool's animation will change from the usual swing/strike animation to a left-to-right backhanded slashing/cutting animation. Butcher Tools do normal Block Damage to old corpses such as animal remains, human remains, or corpses in body bags.
Butchering Efficiently[edit | edit source]
- Your The Huntsman (Perk) will increase the amount of meat and leather resources you extract while Butchering.
- There are a variety of Mods you can install on your butchering tool in order to increase its Entity Damage and Block Damage.
