Leather may only be used for seven items in Stranded Deep, but it is an important crafting item nonetheless. You’ll certainly be in need of the Refined Axe the further you get into the survival game, and the Speargun is essential for deep-sea defense. Even the Waterskin is important for long adventures.
Leather can be crafted from two materials, which can be hard to get in the beginning. However, follow all the steps below, and we’ll show you just how to get leather.
How to Get Leather in Stranded Deep
Before crafting leather, you need to obtain rawhide, which can be skinned off of boars and sharks. You can find tips on how to kill sharks in this guide.
After you get a piece of rawhide, you need to craft a tanning rack. Here’s the crafting recipe:
- 4x Lashing
- 4x Wood Stick
You can get Lashing by following this guide, and Wood Sticks can be picked up on the ground or from trees by cutting them down. And no, palm trees do not grow back, so harvest them wisely.
After crafting the tanning rack, follow these steps to craft leather:
- Open the Crafting menu
- Select the “Tools” tab
- Select the “Leather” option
