Water Beefalo, also known as Ox, are the Shipwrecked version of Beefalo. They have the same characteristics as Beefalo, with the only differences being that the Water Beefalo do not drop Beefalo Wool if killed, they run faster than regular Beefalo, and they drop Horns instead of Beefalo Horns. They are native to the Mangrove biome and are usually found with a small herd. While they spend most of their time in water, they can also walk on land.

Similar to Beefalo, Water Beefalo will periodically drop Manure. When one of them is attacked, the entire herd will rush to their defense. They will huddle together at Dusk and sleep through the Night. Water Beefalo also go through a mating season. During this time, the Water Beefalo will remain passive on water but become hostile on land.

It takes 3 blasts to freeze a Water Beefalo with an Ice Staff and it takes 3 Sleep Darts to put it to sleep.

Prototype.png Tips[edit | edit source]

  • An entire herd of Water Beefalo can easily be killed by attacking with a Boat Cannon while they huddle together during the Night. It should be noted that any meat dropped will be cooked.
  • Water Beefalo run faster than regular Beefalo and can reliably hit the player, so caution is advised when trying to kite them.

Placeholder.png Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Currently Water Beefalo can not be shaved with a Razor, meaning there is currently no Water Beefalo Wool or similar to obtain. This feature might be available in the future though, as in the game files graphics for the "shaved" Water Beefalo can already be found.
  • The previous name for the Water Beefalo was Ox, they were renamed in the Hang Ten update.
