The Deer is a passive, non-hostile NPC animal in Rust. It is very commonly found around the world, especially in or nearby wooded areas.
Although they are passive toward players, you can occasionally see them fighting amongst each other, rearing up on their hind legs and kicking with their front.
- Deer can be a bit hard to hunt, because if the player comes too close to it or damages it, the deer will attempt to sprint rapidly away from the player, at a speed much faster than the player's sprinting speed. However, the deer will eventually slow down, allowing the player to catch up and kill it.
