A Pig Skin can be obtained by killing a Pig, Werepig, or Guardian Pig, or by deconstructing a Pig House with a Hammer or Deconstruction Staff or Pig Head with a Hammer. It is used to craft several items, such as the Football Helmet and Umbrella. Pig Skin is a "horrible" meat food item, which means that while the player refuses to eat it, Spiders, Hounds, and Pigs will see Pig Skin as food and will eat it if left on the ground. Additionally, it can be fed to Pigs to befriend them.

In the Reign of Giants DLC, Pig Skin is required in two more recipes: Scalemail and Summer Frest.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, Pig Skin can be obtained from Wildbores, which replace Pigs. Pig Skin can also be used to craft Spyglasses and Wildbore Houses. Snakes will eat Pig Skin left on the ground.

Prototype.png Tips[edit | edit source]

  • A good way to obtain Pig Skin is to find Pig Heads and dismantle them with a Hammer to get 2 Pig Skin and 2 Twigs. They can be found in Marsh Biomes near Merm camps and around Touch Stones.
    • In the Shipwrecked DLC, Wildbore Heads can alternatively be dismantled for 1 Bamboo and 1 Pig Skin.
    • Keep in mind that during a Full Moon, Pig and Wildbore Heads will additionally drop some Nightmare Fuel in the Reign of Giants and Shipwrecked DLCs.
  • A good way to obtain Pig Skin is to befriend a few Pigs, then take them to Beefalo during mating season.
    • A more advanced variant is to feed a handful of Pigs some food each in order for them to follow you during the Day coinciding with a Full Moon. Wait through Dusk until Night near the Beefalo; it does not need to be Spring but if it is, then make sure you have a Beefalo Hat just in case and do not draw aggro with Pigs. At Night the pigs will all transform and attack their closest targets; if it's you then lead them to the Beefalo, if it's the Beefalo then be ready for free Meat and Pig Skins. Make sure to pick them up as quickly as possible as Werepigs can eat the drops very quickly.
  • Another method of getting Pig Skin is gather 4 Monster Meat to feed to either Pigs and Wildbores to force them transform into Werepigs.This way, the player is certain to get 1 Pig Skin, in addition to 2 Meats when they are killed.
    • Make sure to not feed any normal meats or edibles as you may no longer be able to feed them the 4 Monster Meat without having to wait for them to be hungry again.
    • Monster Meat can be obtained with relative ease by killing Spiders or Hounds.
  • The easiest but most counterproductive way would be to build a Hammer and destroy a Pig House or a Wildbore House.
    • It drops half the amount of Pig Skin used in its construction.
    • Keep in mind that Pigs and Wildbores can no longer spawn should one destroy their respective houses, and each house destroyed is one fewer Pig or Wildbore spawning in that area.
