Far Cry: New Dawn Shark Hunting Location

Far Cry: New Dawn Shark is a rare Rank 2 animal you must track and hunt if you wish to unlock the Master Skinner trophy/achievement in the video game published by Ubisoft for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Because an in-game map showing the location of this animal can’t be purchased, the following guide reveals where to find Sharks in Far Cry: New Dawn.

Additionally, we’ll explain what weapon you should use when hunting Sharks, and how to trade Shark Skins.

Far Cry: New Dawn Shark Location & Habitat

The Shark in Far Cry: New Dawn can be found while playing the H.M.S. MacCoubrey Expedition.

Once you start the said mission, head towards the large floating ship (H.M.S. MacCoubrey), and check the right side to spot sharks swimming around.

In the picture below, you can see a Shark we’ve managed to hunt in this area.

As you might remember this area is also a hunting spot for Cattles; which means that while playing this mission you can actually hunt two of the rarest animals in Far Cry: New Dawn.

After you hunt a Shark swim to its location and skin it.

Keep in mind that since this animal is part of an expedition, you’ll have to finish the mission. Should you decide to leave the mission’s area before completing your objective, its skin will be removed from your inventory.

Hunting Tips

Another rare animal, the Shark in Far Cry: New Dawn is best killed with a long-range weapon.

The Space Force SA-50, for example, allows you to take down any Shark while staying on the ground.

A single shot should be more than enough to kill a Shark in the video game; however, you might want to check if there are additional predators swimming around, before entering the water.
