Far Cry: New Dawn Skunk Hunting Guide

Far Cry: New Dawn Skunk Hunting Location

Far Cry: New Dawn Skunk is the third Rank 1 animal you must hunt while playing the video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

That’s because the Skunk in Far Cry: New Dawn is one of the 25 animals that must be skinned if you wish to unlock the Master Skinner trophy/achievement.

Unlike the first two (Deer and Pronghorn); the Skunk is a rare animal; which means that you won’t be able to find it in Hope County, even if you unlock the Cartography Center in Prosperity.

Nevertheless, this animal exists, and the following guide explains how to find Skunks in Far Cry: New Dawn.

General Information

Animal Family: Mephitidae
Rank: I
Class: Mammals
Scientific Name: Mephitis Mephitis
Huntable: Y
Skinnable: Y
Similar Animals: Hare

Far Cry: New Dawn Skunk Location & Habitat

The Skunk in Far Cry: New Dawn can be found while playing the Alcatraz Island Expedition.

After you clear the area, check all cells with yellow doors until you find one.

These small animals have random spawning locations. You won’t be able to find them anywhere else, except for this region.

If you need more Skunk skins, replay this expedition; but keep in mind that you have to complete it, otherwise the skins will be removed from your inventory.

Hunting Tips

A rare animal, the Skunk in Far Cry: New Dawn is best killed with a fast-firing weapon. While the animal itself is not dangerous, Alcatraz Island Expedition is a Rank 3 mission; thus you’ll need to equip accordingly.

Look for this animal inside the main building, where you should spot some cells with yellow doors.

This means that they are opened and sometimes Skunks live inside.

If by any chance you can’t find a Skunk, restart the mission until it spawns. This is a rare animal; without a fixed spawning location.
