Suspicious Dirt Piles are naturally spawning objects. They can be found randomly in the world and will change locations if ignored for a period of time. Once examined, the Suspicious Dirt Pile will be uncovered by the Character and replaced by an Animal Track pointing in the direction of travel. Another pile of dirt will then spawn approximately two screens away in that direction.

Upon uncovering the final footprint (there can be between 6 and 12 per hunt), the character will alert the player that the creature is close. A Koalefant or a Ewecus will be spawned rather than another track. The chance for spawning an Ewecus starts at 5% on Day 1 and increases gradually to 33% on Day 100. The mob will remain in the world until it is killed, regardless of which Seasons pass.

Gift Icon Downloadable ContentEdit

In the Reign of Giants DLC, Suspicious Dirt Piles have a 50% chance to lead to a Varg instead of an Ewecus.

Don't Starve Together icon Don't Starve TogetherEdit

During the Year of the Varg event in Don't Starve Together, if a trail of Suspicious Dirt Piles is investigated while an active Varg Shrine is in the world, it will always lead to the event-exclusive Set Piece consisting of a Clay Varg and twelve Clay Hounds.
