Boars are a common species of wildlife in Horizon Zero Dawn, and will drop loot vital for several crafting recipes.


Boars will not attack or cause any harm to the player. Rather they will flee when Aloy gets close unless undetected. Boars take 3 Hunter Arrows to kill, 1 Sharpshooter Arrow, or 1 Fire Arrow.

Loot Acquired

When killed, Boars will drop common items such as various types of meat but sometimes they will drop either Boar Skin or Boar Bone, both very valuable items that are useful for trading with merchants.
