Hunting Tips

Just like the Shark, the Demon Fish is best hunted from distance using a scoped rifle such as the Space Force SA-50.

Start by scouting the water looking for a large fish swimming close to the surface. A single shot is enough to kill this animal.

In order to skin it, you have to swim close to the animal’s carcass, hence you might want to unlock the More Lung Capacity Perk.
