Screw these guys. I hate them, i hate the mothers that birthed them and i send them to hell. They have killed me countless times and i think ive killed, nope cant get close enough to kill them. If spotted run, run far and run fast. If you spot one while turning a corner and its just there 20 ft away start crying and hope it didnt see you.
For all the noobs out there, if these things kidnap you in the swamp, here’s what to do. Take out your bow/ gun. Pray you have ammo and fire right into its head. This strategy has saved me countless times.
P.S. If you have a strong melee weapon such as a pike or sword on you, that also works.
This guy is my favourite so far, right from when I first meet him, I was a noob and wandered close to a swamp well he came flying at me missed and disappeared behind me, I'm like what the neck was that, climbed a big arse rock asap and looked around, bugger came bounding back towards me and leapt straight up that rock like it was a mole hill.
Tamed the bugger and took him hunting, came across my first raptor and shat myself thinking oh rap I am screwed, nope Kappa flys over my head, collects the raptor and pile drives it into the ground several meters away, hilarious. Always fun times with Kappa around.
