If you’re playing a game like Stranded Deep, where your main goal is to survive on a tropical island after a plane crash, you can expect that there will be a lot of challenges along the way. Some of the challenges arise in the form of dangerous creatures that don’t like to be disturbed and are not fans of sharing their island with you. If you’re not careful enough, some of them can easily end you.

Our guide gives you everything you need to know on how to kill a giant crab in Stranded Deep and survive long enough to meet bigger and more dangerous enemies.

Giant Crabs in Stranded Deep

One of the regular enemies you will encounter on every island except for the one where you spawn is a giant crab. Seeing one coming at you for the first time can be intimidating since they’re much bigger than regular crabs, with a scary shell full of spikes. If you’re not careful, your first encounter can be fatal as the damage these creatures deal is not so insignificant.

They are quite aggressive and relentless once they see you, so you should learn how to dispose of them as quickly as possible early on.

How to Kill a Giant Crab in Stranded Deep

The good thing about this enemy is that they’re vulnerable to any melee weapon or tool you may have at your disposal. You can try using an axe and slashing at it a few times, but a better approach, in our opinion, is to go stealthy.

Try to spot a giant crab before it spots you, approach it from behind, and hit it with a spear. You can also throw your spear at it, but it will break, so jabbing is the better method. Even if the crab sees you before you sneak up on it, aim at its head, and it shouldn’t be too difficult to finish that fight fast enough.

If it all goes wrong, run into the ocean because giant crabs don’t go in the water after you.

After you kill it, you can use your knife to skin the giant crab and get 2 medium pieces of meat.

And that’s all you need to know about killing giant crabs in Stranded Deep! Happy hunting and makes sure to clear these pesky creatures out before you start exploring a new island.
