Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Patient Note[edit | edit source]

This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of what Dr. Sophia, the author of the Patient Notes has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creatures.

Megapithecus Pt. Note (Mobile).png
Pre-exposure

Subject is moderately docile, preferring to wander about and forage rather than interact with other creatures in its proximity. Shows moderate signs of aggression when approached, but otherwise keeps to itself while enjoying the bounty of fruits that can be acquired within its habitat.

Post-exposure

Subject shows highly increased signs of aggression, abnormal enhancements to strength, speed, and intelligence. Subject is able to rally other creatures of its similar nature to fight alongside it in battle, urging even the smallest of the ape species to participate in a battle to the death against any intruder.

The Megapithecus Pestis always spawns with the same color scheme and has no color regions.

This means it is currently impossible to make alterations to the Megapithecus Pestis's natural spawn colors.

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Megapithecus Pestis.

General[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Using a Compound Bow can deal decent amounts of damage and keeps the survivor at a reasonable distance. Using a Shotgun will deal greater damage, but it can put the survivor dangerously close to the Megapithecus Pestis.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

The Megapithecus Pestis will attempt to hurl enormous rocks at the survivor. The Mesopithecus minions it summons inflict Torpor that can put a survivor to sleep.
