Origin and Physiology Edit
A large animal that can reach 1.5 meters at the shoulder. The boar's ability to survive and aggression surpass that of its relatives outside the Zone and resemble that of most mutants.
Mutagenic processes engendered by radiation and anomalies have played a significant part in shaping these mammals: they have lost all fur in places and grown long, bristly fur in others. The animals' hooves have changed in shape and become sharper, acquiring a resemblance to claws; their pupils have become colorless and pigmentation disorders and deep wrinkles have appeared on their bald heads. They have also grown an extra pair of tusks which are easily recognized.
Behavior and biotope Edit
Zone boars resist radiation well which allows them to spend long periods in heavily contaminated areas. They normally attack by charging at their victims and attempting to rip them to shreds with their claws or knock them over. The boar is indeed one of the most dangerous of the original domestic animals of the Zone.
Boars are basically Fleshes on steroids. They're much tougher, faster and stronger. They have a vicious charge attack that they love to use which is hard to dodge, and shooting them in the head does not seem to cause additional damage because of their extremely thick skulls. On the plus side they're less numerous than Fleshes and usually appear in groups of two-three, possibly with some Flesh escort. They're also a big and relatively slow target and fighting them is quite straightforward because of their simple AI.
Shadow of Chernobyl Edit
Clear Sky Edit
Much like in SoC, Boars appear nearly everywhere, except underground areas.
Call of Pripyat Edit
Boars are randomly spawning along Fleshes in Zaton and Yanov. A lot of them will attack you during your mission to protect Poplar when he is talking measurements at Plavni Anomaly and when you investigate Stingray 1.
