How to Get Rawhide in Stranded Deep

Rawhide is crucial to surviving Stranded Deep. However, harvesting the resource takes a bit of an effort. The only way to get rawhide is from skinning hunted animals. Additionally, you can only obtain it from specific animals in the game. Here are the animals that provide rawhide:

  • Boars
    • Adults provide three Rawhide.
  • Sharks
    • Provide four Rawhide.

If you’re ready to go exploring, I recommend you hunt Boars for Rawhide. Sharks will offer a much greater challenge, but Boars are randomly found across different islands. Considering survival is the main mission, the risk isn’t necessarily worth it. You can hunt a Boar by throwing spears, or using a bow and arrow. Once you’ve successfully hunted one, you’ll need a cutting tool like a refined knife to skin the corpse and collect the Rawhide.

    • x1 Tanning Rack.

Once you’ve got some leather crafted, I recommend you upgrade your tools first. Having upgraded tools will save you plenty of time and effort, so that you can focus on bettering your overall shelter and setup.
