With the introduction of the Snow Cave, an Alpha variant of Gigantopithecus was added. These Yetis have significantly higher base stats and are untameable. Due to spawning within a Hard Difficulty cave, they are also guaranteed to spawn at exceptionally high levels - anywhere up to 350!
These apes are vicious, terrifying creatures that will decimate any adventurers hoping to step foot inside the cave. Stay clear from them, or use extremely powerful guns and weaponry to slaughter them before they get their powerful hands on you! They are very dangerous!
1Percentages are based on the value of the stat the moment the creature was tamed (after taming effectiveness) 2The absolute Base Damage is shown here instead of the percentage. 3Wild creatures do not level up movement speed 4Torpidity increases every level on wild creatures, but can not be increased once they are tamed.
The Yeti will either back-hand or crush the target with both fists. This attack deals knockback that will shove players or smaller creatures a fair distance, sometimes over cliffs.
Status Effect: Stamina
Status Effect: Torpidity
While this attack is coded, it is not used by the AI in-game. Using the (PC), (PS4), (Xbox One), the Yeti throws a mounted survivor overhead. Any creature directly in front of the Yeti will take damage.
Yetis are heavy hitters with a large pool of health. You have to be a glass cannon or a harasser to take them down. Hitting hard with shotguns or Rocket Launchers is highly advised. Mowing down the Yeti is also a great idea ( for larger tribes ). C4, even though its expensive, can take down even a high level Yeti. Of course, you can always use Grappling hooks to stay above it and slowly kill him by shooting Arrows from a Bow or a Crossbow... or a Compound Bow.
Using guns is highly advised. Melee is a bad idea, but a tribemate with a shield can be invaluable as a decoy while the rest of the tribe shoots the Yeti. A large tribe can use multiple Fabricated Pistols to mow down a Yeti, multiple Yetis are invulnerable to this strategy. Hanging above him with a grappling hook and shooting him down with arrows is a "cheap" alternative.
It is highly advised to bring big mounts such as Rex to defeat them on The Center. The caves containing Yetis on The Center have very big entrances to allow them to enter.
Firearms ( Fabricated or not ) will do the trick, as long as they are Apprentice level, or higher. Melee will get you killed in a matter of seconds. Compound Bows do damage to him, but the ammo is a bit expensive.
