Hunting is a major side event that allows you to hunt and skin animals that are used for Edward's Upgrades and making money. The following is a list of the animals, their location, and their drops.
Animals are divided into two categories:
- Passive Animals - These animals will flee from Edward when they see him. To kill them easily you will want to use a ranged weapon or sneak up on them from hiding places, stalking zones, or from above.
- Aggressive Animals - These animals will attack Edward when they see him. To kill them easily you will want to use a ranged weapon or complete a QTE event when they attack.

Note that all animals drop bones, which can be sold for 50R, but they are best for crafting darts.
Harpooning can be done at any water animal locations, but without some upgrades you will need to be extremely accurate. When harpooning there are two things you need to keep an eye on: your boats health and your stock of harpoons. If you run out of harpoons or your rowboat is destroyed you will exit the hunting and have to re-enter and try again.
Hunting is fairly simple, with you manually aiming harpoons at your target to deplete their health. When the first harpoon hits you will latch on to the target and be dragged behind, causing the camera to shake. All further harpoons can be aimed at the base of the rope to hit the target again. Eventually, the target will break free and disappear. Skim the area for your target and listen for the splash to indicate its return. The more aggressive animals will attack the rowboat unless attacked first.
Once the target's health is depleted they will be hoist aboard the ship and their reward handed over.
