Eyeless Dog in Lethal Company
The Eyeless Dog is a giant creature that can be found outdoors on a moon during your explorations. When you face it, you will see that it is a huge dog-like creature. As its name suggests, the creature is blind and only moves using its other senses, mostly noise. It has a massive mouth filled with sharp teeth to match its huge body. Being a creature with no eyes, it has supersonic hearing which lets it navigate through its surroundings.
The dog measures its surroundings with the Noise Loudness level which is greater than or equal to 0.25 for each sound in the game. Each noise that the dog detects is one counter added to its suspicion level and it can go up to a maximum of 9 before the dog becomes enraged. Each time the dog investigates a noise and finds nothing, its suspicion level decreases by 1 every 4 seconds. If the suspicion level goes down to 1 or lower, it stops investigating and goes back to roaming normally.
The creature attacks by going into an enraged state and lunging blindly at the last known location of a sound it detected. When lunging, you can dodge the dog as it cannot see you and change its track midway. If the dog lunges and does not find anything, it slides across the ground before stopping and lunging again toward the next location where it detects any type of noise.
How to successfully escape the Eyeless Dog in Lethal Company
As mentioned before, the Eyeless Dog is a creature that has a massive body and is blind. For this reason, it has supersonic hearing which lets it pick up on noise nearby quite quickly. Hence, how do you even escape the creature without being chewed up in its massive jaws?
Well, the best way to go about escaping the Eyeless Dog is to be stealthy. One of the first steps you need to take against this creature is to look for signs of it being nearby and avoid going near that area altogether. If that is not possible, then it is best to crouch immediately when you spot the creature and move slowly. Crouching eliminates all noises of movement that a player makes. It is also advisable to just stop speaking as the creature can also detect noise from your microphone and come lunging at you.
Another tactic that you can try is climbing to high ground as the Eyeless Dog cannot jump or climb. You can climb to the top of the ship and alert your teammates so that they can lure the dog away and you can get inside the ship. One of the easiest ways to lure the dog is by using an air horn, boombox or toy robot or any item that makes constant noise. You can also kill the dog, but it is quite hard to do without having a full team with effective communication going at it together. Killing the dog by yourself can be done by using lightning, luring it towards a sparking item and letting it die.
As for killing it in a team, you can do it using three shovels and a zap gun. You need to lure the dog to an open space and then zap it with the zap gun to stun it. As soon as the dog is stunned, the other 3 players need to close in and hit it constantly with their shovels. This will eventually kill the creature after 7 or so hits, but you need to maintain effective communication as mentioned before.
Needless to say, the Eyeless Dog might look like a blind giant monster who you can easily sidestep and leave but it is actually a deadly creature who is listening to your every move and can kill you in the blink of an eye with sheer brute force. Hence, make sure to read up on all the information given above about this creature and escape this giant monster to continue your exploration journey on the moon safely.
