Pelt is a resource that can be acquired by harvesting corpses with most tools and dinosaurs. Pelt is used to craft fur gear, which provides excellent cold protection.

Gathering[edit | edit source]

The most efficient way to harvest Pelt is by using a tamed Direwolf with high melee damage, although Thylacoleo and Sabertooth will work nearly as well. Another highly efficient tool for harvesting it is the Metal Hatchet, but it can be harvested with a Stone Hatchet and Picks as well. Other low level items will only occasionally harvest Pelt.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • One of the easiest ways to get Pelt is to tame a Direwolf and then run around killing Mammoths. You will get around 20-50 Pelt per Mammoth. Another way is to make a holding pen near the snow and put a strong mount (preferably a herbivore so they don't eat the corpse) in there. Then take an Argentavis to the snow, pick up Direwolves and Megaloceros and drop them in the cage for your tame to kill. Harvest the bodies with a Direwolf or metal hatchet. This method only works in Single Player or on servers that have picking up wild creatures enabled.
  • Outside of the Snow Biome you can get pelt from Castoroides, Direbears and Megaloceros.
  • On Scorched Earth, Pelt can be collected from Direwolves, Equus, Megatheriums, Procoptodons, and Yutyrannus, as well as from Supply Crates.
