One of the most challenging monsters in Lethal Company is the terrifying Eyeless Dog. Fortunately, there is a way to beat it.
Lethal Company has its fair share of terrifying monsters. From the Bracken to the Bunker Spiders, there is no shortage of nightmare fuel for you to come toe-to-toe with in this indie horror. However, perhaps one of the most deadly is the Eyeless Dog. While it can’t see you, hence the name, it can hear anything, including your own voice. If you’re wondering how you defeat it, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. Below, we offer the best tips for beating the Eyeless Dog, as well as explain whether you can kill it.
To beat the Eyeless Dog in Lethal Company, you need to be as quiet as possible. Muting your walkie-talkie, crouch walking, and hiding on top of your ship are surefire ways of avoiding this challenging monster. While it can be defeated, you’re often better off escaping it or avoiding it as long as possible. Here are some survival tips to use when you encounter the Eyeless Dog:
Move out of its line of sight. If you can see it, then it can technically see you. While it can’t literally see you, being out of its line of sight will halve the amount of noise it can hear.
Mute your walkie-talkie. The Eyeless Dog can hear you through your microphone, as well as anyone speaking to you through the walkie-talkie. So, turning it off completely and remaining as quiet as possible is key.
Climb onto your ship. The Eyeless Dog, thankfully, cannot climb up onto your ship. So, if you can, head up the ladder on the side of your ship and wait patiently.
Drop all noisy items. Noisy items such as Robot Toys make a noise even when stashed in your inventory. So, make sure to drop them. Additionally, because the Eyeless Dog reacts purely based on sound, any items that emit a loud noise, such as the Loud Horn, should be avoided at all costs.
Only walk while crouched. Crouch walking is a much quieter form of movement and can be done by holding down CTRL while walking. The Eyeless Dog will hear you crouch walking if you get too close, but from afar, you’ll be safe to move this way.
Bring a shovel. It’s worth noting that you can defend yourself against the Eyeless Dog, even if it’s dangerous. Make sure to bring an effective melee weapon with you to fend off the dog if it gets near.
Yes, you can kill the Eyeless Dog in Lethal Company. The easiest way to do so is to stun it with a Stun Grenade or Zap Gun and then hit it with a melee weapon such as a shovel. In fact, most monsters in Lethal Company can be killed. Of course, it goes without saying that it won’t be an easy fight, especially if you’re not well prepared. If you catch an Eyeless Dog in the moment and don’t have anything to stun it with, you’re better off hiding or trying to escape than fighting it.
