How to Get Shark Skin

To get shark skins you potentially have to come face to face with one of nature's most fearsome predators. Below are a few tips for making these encounters as painless as possible:

The safest way is to get a boat or jet ski and take it out into the water. Wait for sharks to come round the boat, then shoot them from your position. You can then go into the water to harvest the skins.

If you feel like being more hands-on, dive off the edge of the boat and let them come at you. They sometimes grab you which triggers as QTE (where you press buttons to complete actions) and these, if done successfully, will end with you being able to skin the shark.

Finally, try using your camera and scanning the ocean with it. You should be able to 'tag' sharks and then head o..

Crocodile Locations

Be careful when you come across groups of lotus flowers that are found in the rivers and waterways as crocodiles can usually be found there. They will leave you alone and not attack unless you get too close. If you are attacked by a crocodile you can kill them with one shot using the Recurve Bow.

Hunting Strategies

If you are trying to hunt certain animals, particularly when required to kill them just with a Bow and Arrow, there are a few tactics you can try to employ:

The game is very large, meaning there are frequently occasions when animals will 'glitch' or get trapped in an area and not be able to move. If fighting something like the Black Panther, you can try to get it to glitch before shooting it with your arrows - it's a tough fight otherwise.

For more docile prey, try getting them between you and the ocean. Then, fire some shots into the group and they will run away from you, into the sea, and drown themselves!

Goat Hunting

Spacebar - Mash

When instructed to do this, you are required to push the spacebar as quickly as possibly in succession. 'Mashing' the button. The wording can be a bit confusing.

Hidden Video Sequences

You will be able to view hidden video scenes if you take one of the 'eat me' berries whenever you travel to the grotto underneath the mansion.
