The Dire Wolf is a wild animal commonly found in the Forest, Plains and Snowy Forest biomes. Dire Wolves are hostile and will try to chase and attack the player if provoked or if they spot the player. Dire Wolves are much faster than players and will easily outrun a player and catch them, so it is advised to take them down as fast as you can before they can reach you, or get to the high ground like a car as they cannot climb it. Dire Wolves now blend in with the regular Wolf and can only be told apart by their glowing orange eyes. They can also appear in Wolf hordes. A Dire Wolf's attack can also cause bleeding.
It is recommended to use a Bone Knife, Hunting Knife, or Machete when harvesting because it will provide the player with more resources than any other tool or weapon. Dire Wolves will not drop any loot upon being killed but can be harvested for the following:
