Shark-Crysis

A shark about to finish off its prey in Recovery.

Sharks (superorder Selachimorpha) are large, carnivorous fish with a full cartilaginous skeleton and a highly streamlined body. In Crysis, they are seen patrolling the waters surrounding the Lingshan Island and serves as level boundaries to prevent players from wandering off.

Desciption[]

All sharks in Crysis seem to be great white sharks. They are about 5-6 meters long and swim very fast though can only swim forward. A shark bite in Crysis is deadly, causing up to 500 damage in a single bite. They can be found in "Contact" and "Recovery", where if the player travels into the ocean beyond the islands, one will appear and attack.

Tactics[]

Stay away from water. If you spot one then you should turn speed mode on and swim back to the shore, do not mine about surviving a bite, a single bite will normally kill you in any Nanosuit modes. Shooting them is not a good idea, as sharks are very tough, each with health of 3000, a half of a Hunter, and you require a platform to fire, which is hard to find.

Glitches[]

  • Sharks sometimes swim on shore and move strangely with problem in moving.
  • Sharks can fly, mostly in case of the player has escaped the area or it has already bit the player. They will fly away, to somewhere else.
  • Sharks attack by animation, and do not regard distances, which means that upon sharks finish the biting animation, player will take damage, no matter the range.
