Subnautica: Below Zero – How to deal with Snow Stalkers
Including some information about Snow Stalkers.
The Snow Stalkers can be found in the Glacial Basin, Arctic Spires, and East Arctic.
Snow stalkers seem to be deliberately placed so that they each have a small territory to “guard.” The problem is they won’t attack or pursue you if you’re standing outside this territory, even if they’re staring you in the face. Furthermore, if removed from their territory, they will immediately begin trying to walk back and ignore the player unless they get right in their face. It seems kinda cool when they have a den with babies, but makes them seem derpy when they’re outside, supposedly hunting, but don’t react when potential prey stands just an arm’s reach away.
Remove the arbitrary boundaries, or at least make them way, way less restrictive.
Spy Pengling Makes You Invulnerable
In keeping with the theme of exploiting snow stalkers’ weaknesses, it’s good to know that they cannot harm you while your spy pengling is active. They’ll still charge at you. They just won’t grab or bite you.
When a snow stalker either catches or fails to catch the player, they will “forget” and become docile for about five seconds, wandering around and performing idle animations. (Sea creatures do this as well, but it’s more evident and jarring when you don’t have the constant forward motion and six degrees of freedom of swimming.) With a little bit of patience, and by exploiting their vertical mobility as mentioned above, moving through a snow stalker’s territory is extremely easy even on foot.
Make them more determined! They should be pursuing the player in some capacity for as long as they can see the player, only giving up if they determine that the player absolutely cannot be reached.
They Make Great Mounts!
You can stand on a snow stalker’s back, and it can’t do anything about it. Sit back and enjoy the ride!
Snow Stalkers Fur
You need the use of spy pengling to collect furs.
The blueprint for the Spy Pengling is acquired by scanning fragments in the Glacial Basin.
You can craft it from the fabricator.
Dealing with Snow Stalkers
The Snow Stalker can be scared away by the Flare.
If you explore the Glacial Basin and Arctic Spires, at least have one Flare on your inventory to avoid taking damage!
You can kill them with a knife or a prawn suit.
Easy to kill them with a prawn suit. Hit them with claw arm 4-5 times, and they will quickly die.
They can swim too.
And they deal 35 damage with one attack!
