The Tiger Thresher Hatchling is the baby variant of the Tiger Thresher.


The Tiger Thresher Hatchling is significantly smaller than the Tiger Thresher. Its skin is underdeveloped, still being covered in blood and the gooey insides of the egg. Its teeth haven't come through yet and the distinctive tiger stripes are absent from the body. Despite their stature, they are still a threat to those around them, especially if their prey underestimates its ability.

Tiger Thresher Hatchlings are self-sufficient from birth and will naturally start hunting in packs.


Tiger Thresher Hatchlings can only spawn from Tiger Thresher Eggs. These can be found in infested Abandoned Outposts or in a Tiger Thresher Nest.

Due to their smaller size, Tiger Thresher Hatchlings are larger threats than regular Mudraptors when considering swarming tactics. Their natural environment consists of tight spaces and low visibility, which allows them to sneak up on unsuspecting players who are caught off-guard by the hatching process. It is also important to note that wherever a Tiger Thresher swims, several Tiger Threshers are sure to be close by.

Once birthed, Tiger Thresher Hatchlings tend to target the nearest Human directly, moving quickly and providing little time for them to react.

Combat strategies

Tiger Thresher Hatchlings pose a significantly reduced threat compared to regular Tiger Threshers, however caution is still advised. Melee weapons such as the Crowbar or Boarding Axe can make swift work of a Tiger Thresher Hatchling if is unrealistic to maintain a safe distance. If ranged weaponry is preferred, the Revolver or SMG are optimal alternatives due to their high damage and accuracy, combined with relatively cheaper ammo.

As Tiger Threshers tend to defend areas where Mudraptor Hatchlings live, the Shotgun is highly recommended. Due to the length of both the Tiger Thresher and its hatchling, the shotgun can quickly and easily dispose of the threat. However, the ammunition is considered to be more expensive, so player discretion is advised.

A Submarine's weaponry would be considered excessive if used against a Tiger Thresher Hatchling.
