Hunting Knife

The hunting knife is a tool used to obtain Raw Meat from dead animals. To use it, look at the corpse of an animal, and choose the "Gut Animal" option from the mouse wheel menu. The corpse will then contain Raw Meat that can be looted like any other corpse or loot pile.

Unlike other equipment items such as the Hatchet or the Flashlight, it cannot be equipped and thus can cannot be used as a weapon. Currently, its only purpose is gutting animals.

To create Cooked Meat, Raw Meat must be cooked at a Fireplace or a lit oil barrel. Once cooked, Cooked Meat provides 800 blood when eaten, making it the best source of blood when blood bags aren't available.

one of the must-have things in the game currently there is also a bug that you can multiply the meet by having more then one player guting the animal at the same time
