Raccoons are an uncommon species of wildlife in Horizon Zero Dawn, typically found in wooded areas. When killed, they drop loot vital for several crafting recipes.


In the Old World, this creature was called the North American Raccoon, Procyon lotor, the largest of the Procyonidae family. Native to the North American continent, this scavenger thrived wherever humans lived and continues to do so in the New World.


Like all organic life in the New World designed by GAIA in her reseeding of the planet after its devastation by the Faro Plague, raccoons will not attack or cause any harm to Aloy. Rather, they will run away quickly when Aloy gets close unless undetected. They usually take one arrow to kill.

Loot Acquired 

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