A Cougar icon.png Cougar is an aggressive Creature which can be found in nearly all the biomes of the New World, but is most commonly found in on Mountain icon.png Mountains. Cougars are camouflaged which can make them hard to spot.

Combat Behavior

Attack Blood Damage Effects
Claw icon.png Claw 20 to 65 Bleed icon.png Bleed
Leap At icon.png Leap At 3 to 10 Stunned icon.png Stunned

Cougars are aggressive and fast; they will attack any pilgrim who wanders too close. A Cougar will alternate between its Claw icon.png Claws which, if they lands, will cause you to Bleed icon.png Bleed and its Leap At icon.png Leap At attack which can launch it several tiles and if it lands, will cause you to be Stunned icon.png Stunned for 5 seconds. Due to a Cougar's speed and the duration of its Stun, you can easily get Stun-locked when fighting a Cougar. It is better to Stun a Cougar while you stand behind obstacles and when it becomes Stunned, run in close and make a more powerful attack. Then retreat and repeat. Cougars are immune to Venom Dart icon.png Venom Darts.
