This page contains information regarding current enemies and some general tips on how to survive from them.

Deer

Both male stags and female doe roam the Chimera wilderness in both northern and southern regions. Deer are easily startled and are extremely sensitive to any nearby movement. Should you frighten or intimidate a doe it will immediately begin to gallop at great speed in an attempt to distance itself from a potential predator. Hunting from a distance is commonly used to combat the speed of this animal. Male stags should be approached with caution as the antlers can be lethal to a human if the stag feels threatened. Deer provide fresh deer meat, leather and cloth upon death.

Wolves

Wolves roam the wilderness as a matter of natural course and are relatively harmless unless either approached or provoked in an aggressive manner. Wolves are also extremely fast and can catch a player sprinting at full speed with ease. Wolf attacks don't deal a large amount of damage however when they attack in quick succession it can be dangerous. Wolves are highly vulnerable to melee attacks as they have no armoured clothing of any kind however beware as wolves can hear distant gunshots and will come looking for you if they hear you shooting. Wolves also provide both fresh wolf meat, leather and cloth when killed.

Bears

The mighty grizzly bear is truly the king of the forest, for now at least. Bears suffer from their slower speed however can still easily outrun a human at full speed. Bears are the largest animals currently in the game and provide the most meat upon death. Bears roam mainly northern regions of Chimera however rare sightings have also been recorded in southern regions so it is best to watch out at all times wherever you may be. The claws are the bears main weapon and are absolutely deadly capable of killing a deer in a single strike with its powerful paws. The same goes for a human, the only way to effectively combat a wild grizzly bear is with a ranged weapon of some kind. Bears provide a large amount of fresh bear meat and leather upon death however do not drop any cloth making the creation of healing items not possible following a bear attack.

The Reaper

Experiment #418 known more commonly as, "The Reaper", is a formidable foe to say the least, who now inhabits the land following "The Parallax Effect". It roams the plains feasting on any living thing it can find, including humans mainly. The Reaper however only awakens during night hours as sunlight burns it rendering it powerless. Equipped with super-human sensory abilities, The Reaper is capable of tracking the scent of a single human across many kilometers. Ultimately, you can run but you can't hide from him. He will eventually find you and when he does, you had better be ready for a fight for your life. Screams and screeches signal he is nearby along with a low pitched drone and deterioration of sanity. If you hear anything out of the ordinary, be prepared. As far as we know, The Reaper resembles a tall humanoid figure that wears bulky white/grey armour pieces we assume is made from the bones of those whom he has killed. His eyes glow bright purple and gemstones in his armoured pieces also glow the same colour making him somewhat easier to spot in the dark. He wears a long skull mask over his face to cover up whatever terrors lie beneath it. If you come across The Reaper, do not engage unless you are certain you have enough firepower to take him down. Exactly how much is required, we aren't quite sure. Do fear The Reaper.

The Harrow

Experiment #133 otherwise termed as "The Harrow", is a remarkably tall standing creature. Fundamentally human by anatomy however horrifically twisted on the outside. The Harrow has grown several long curved horns protruding from its relatively small head made entirely of an unknown material, closely related to human skin, however discolouration has lead to a blue and black texture to form. The Harrow has 54 long, sharp teeth kept well concealed within its mouth. He also has 2 huge clawed fists each the size of a small car tyre. Weighing a whopping 400 kilograms, this beastly creature is truly deadly and a force not to be reckoned with. The Harrow also displays remarkable movement speed considering its hefty weight, capable of clawing itself rapidly along the ground at roughly 50km/h. The Harrow resembles what can only be described as a great horned beast conceivable only in ones nightmares. I pray you never have to see this crazed killer for I fear your life will be sucked out of you before your very eyes.

The Split

Experiment #254 known by its common name, The Split, is one fearsome creature indeed. It is an extremely unique creature in the sense that its abilities defy all known laws of existence. Born from the twisted experiments of The Parallax Organisation, this hellish fiend wants nothing more than the blood all that lives. Rumours say this creature is the spawn of the estranged Doctor R. Maxwell however no further supporting evidence has surfaced. The Split is capable of degenerating the atomic structure of its cells down to the quantum level and is then seemingly able to regenerate a perfect clone of itself. The Split then seems to have complete neural control of these clones and order them to seek out and kill its victim using as violent means as possible. The Split then proceeds to recombine itself into a single being only to then seek out its next victim. The only known way to harm The Split is to damage the first iteration of itself. The original. This can be extremely difficult to achieve however as the clones it creates will protect the original creature at all costs. Should you be unlucky enough to find yourself confronted with this being, pray that it will have mercy upon your soul.

Humans

There are no rules, the laws and morals of civiliastion have left this planet, you can beg, steal, betray or totally ignore your fellow human survivors. You may even form cooperative teams and lead expeditions to explore together and protect each other. However what you must keep in mind is that your fellow humans are just as intelligent as you and may be plotting against you unknowingly. Tread carefully and forge friendships with great caution.
