Behavior[edit | edit source]
The Rockjaw is aggressive towards anything that isn't another Rockjaw, even flying birds. When fighting Creatures on water, it simply swims up to it and bites it, dealing 30 damage, before kiting it by swimming away for about 6 seconds and attacking again.
When fighting creatures located on a Boat, they jump on the Boat and perform a triple AoE attack before going back into the water. If a Rockjaw jumps on the boat three times without hitting a player with its attacks, it will lose interest and begin roaming again. Just like Beefalos and Bunnymen, a Rockjaw regenerates lost health over time, taking 3 days to regenerate its full health.
If a Rockjaw is attacked, Rockjaws nearby will also join the fight. It will despawn when unloaded from the player's vicinity.
Hunting[edit | edit source]
Below is the number of hits it takes with each weapon to kill a Rockjaw when playing with characters with a default damage modifier. The Weather Pain is not included due to the random nature of its projectile.
|12 (7 )|
|17 - 34|

Trivia[edit | edit source]

- When Rockjaws are near the player, boat horn-like sounds can be heard.
