Pinecocks are medium-level creatures that can be hunted for loot.
Pinecocks can be found far east of the player's workshop, all the way to the waterfall on the most eastern edge of the map, but not in the area just east of the workshop. They can also be found far southwest of the player's workshop, near the edge of the map, as well as in the grassy area near the Hazardous Ruins and the Clinic.
Pinecocks spawn from 7:00 to 17:00, and from 1:00 to 3:00. Like other creatures, they will respawn if the player enters and then leaves a building during their spawn times. They are medium-level creatures, ranging from Level 6 to Level 10 in most areas. Pinecocks found southwest of the player's workshop range from Level 11 to Level 15, just like other creatures found there.
Pinecocks are slow creatures, with move speeds just below that of the player, but after being attacked, they will travel at a medium speed, moving as fast as the player. They travel by flying, and, like all other creatures, they will run from the player when they get close. Pinecocks, like other creatures, are able to enter water. When attacking, Pinecocks will shoot a projectile at the player.
Pinecocks ranging from Level 6 to Level 10 will, upon death, drop 3 meat and 1-2 worn fur.
Pinecocks ranging from Level 11 to Level 15 will drop 1 meat and 1 fur.
