Sharks can only be found in the Ocean. They are attracted to Shipwrecks, Naval combat, and Megalodons which make them spawn in larger groups (2-4 Sharks). When swimming in calm waters, the shark spawn rate is greatly reduced, making it possible for a player to swim from one island to next with no disturbances. They can be killed with any weapon, it generally takes 3 hits from any firearm and 5 sword hits. It is possible to Harpoon a shark or even stand on top of one.
- A Shark will not trigger a Gunpowder Barrel when it bites.
- A sharks attack can be dodged by swimming directly towards the shark and going down last second.
