Back to Creatures

Foxes are not aggressive to players, but will attack any small game, such as Squirrels, Rabbits, and Chickens. A player can pick up the corpse of the small creature afterwards.

When Skinning them you have a chance to gain a Fresh Sly Ear of the Fox.



Passive until you attack them. Commonly chases and kills small animals, leaving them available to be picked up by players. They do however have a chance to attack you for stealing their prey while they are chasing them!

Fox hunting is a great goal for new players. You should try to get all your Combat skills (Agility, UA and MC) to about 15-25.

There's not much to Foxes. Simply spam Punch while keeping your openings low. If you have it, you can also use Quick Barrage or Sideswipe/Uppercut. They won't attack nor defend often, so just go ham. They'll flee at sprint speed though, so you need to be on grassland or horseback. Good luck!

In-Game Example(s)

Fox-dead.png Dead Fox. Can be skinned for Raw Fox Hide.
Fox-skinned.png Skinned Fox. Can be cleaned for Intestines, Entrails and then either butchered to gain Raw Fox or be spitroasted.
Fox-skeleton.png Fox Skeleton. Can be collected for Bone Material.


  • If a Badger and a Fox are in close proximity, they will initiate combat and begin to fight one another. Invariably, the Badger will kill the fox. This can be useful for newbies to get an early source of fox materials. It is also possible to initiate combat with the badger while it is fighting the fox, giving you the opportunity to kill it without taking any damage.
