Characteristics

Biology

Standing approximately ten feet tall, the sheepsquatch is a huge cryptid bearing resemblance to a sheep. Sheepsquatches possess a set of large horns protruding directly from the sides of their heads. Their skin is pink and raw, with large quills poking out from their upper back. Despite their resemblance to sheep, their wool is stiff and grey, with only meager patches visible on the animal. Their faces appear almost skeletal, especially around the nose area. Their eyes are large and fish-like, with rectangular pupils typical of normal sheep and goats. They have small ears, dwarfed by their massive horns. They have large jowls, prominent especially when howling. Their teeth are small and flat, like that of a herbivore. However, sheepsquatches are carnivores, so it is unclear as to how a sheepsquatch is able to eat effectively. They have a potbelly and 3 large claws on each hand. They stand on two legs, on large hooves. Their legs have inverted knees, similar to that of a dog's legs. They have a short tail.

Sheepsquatches communicate through howls and groans, with long, somber, drawn-out moans. This noise appears to come from the unique way that they vibrate their jowls when calling out. This method of calling allows them to change the pitch quickly and easily, in order to convey what they want to.

Their intelligence is currently unknown. They appear to be solitary, however in the Free Range event, more than one can appear at the end of the event.

Gameplay attributes

  • Performs a basic swipe and headbutt attack at nearby enemies.
  • Sheepsquatches can launch their quills in a powerful AOE attack, as well as being able to rip a patch of quills off and launch them at hostiles.
  • Sheepsquatches will consistently perform a jump attack that staggers players, resulting in a temporary debuff of 50% to movement speed and a cut to ranged accuracy.
  • Sheepsquatches can perform a ram attack that allows them to close the distance between themselves and attackers very quickly
  • The cryptid newspaper found in the truck at the campsite below Toxic Larry's Meat 'n Go mentions that sheepsquatch urine is highly acidic, however, we have seen no indication of this as an ability in game.
