Maneater Tips and Tricks

Crush your foes with BLOOD AND TEETH

Maneater is an open-world RPG where being a badass shark is what makes it special. But let’s be real, do you know anyone — apart from the guy who said sharks are smooth as hell — who can actually successfully be a shark? It’s hard work, everyone! Especially when there are so many people out there who want to stick you with poles and shoot you. It’s just not cool, man. 

Maneater Tips and Tricks

This guide is for beginners of the game who want to know the best way to get started. With these Maneater tips and tricks, you’ll look like a natural-born predator of the sea.

Evade!

If you’re like me, you ignore most of the tutorials in the heat of the moment and just do your utmost best to attack the enemy repeatedly until they are nice and dead. I’m begging you not to do that, and listen to the tutorial when it tells you to evade attacks whenever possible. Evading not only helps you get to places faster when you’re on the surface of the water, but keeps you from being filled with bullets by those pesky hunters. Everyone’s a winner!

Don’t be afraid to explore

Not only is the sea a unique place for you to explore in a way that’s very different to games like Breath of the Wild and Red Dead Redemption 2, but doing so is very rewarding thanks to, you know, being a shark. There are chests, sidequests and places of importance that are hidden both on land and in the deep blue, and doing these can help you get better transmutations. These can net you some pretty early experience points, though do be cautious. Some of these places are best played when you’re a higher level.

Running away is good, actually

You may feel unstoppable, but that’s not true. The more you destroy, the more your infamy rises and attracts hunters and boy, when there are a lot of hunters together… It’s not pretty. 

If you’ve bitten off more than you can chew, dive back under the water and wait for a while. Try inserting yourself between some rocks, or under a pipe, or anything that can hide you from being detected by enemies after you. They’ll leave you be, and you can go ahead and continue to terrorize the denizens of the sea.

EAT EVERYTHING

Eating isn’t just good for gaining experience and getting in an extra snack now and then while hunting, it’s also good for your health. The more you eat sea creatures or humans, the more health you gain. This can be helpful when fighting against tough enemies, as snacking on smaller fish can give you the edge that you need to win.

Always upgrade

This seems like a no brainer, but if you’re like me and had no idea that you could just upgrade your abilities, this is a nice reminder. The moment you get mutations that help give you more health, or make you do more damage, upgrade them so that combat isn’t too difficult.
