How to Breed Boars

Tame Two Boars

Taming Boars.png
In order to breed Boars, you are going to have to tame them first. Taming them can be time-consuming and will require you to have some patience. You will need a minimum of two tamed Boars together in an enclosed space to breed with each other. Check out our Taming Guide below to help you catch those Boars for you to breed.

Feed the Boars

After taming the Boars you caught, you will need to continue feeding them in order to get them to breed. Once in awhile you will see pink hearts coming out of a Boar randomly, this means it will give birth soon. After some time a Piggie will plop out. The Piggie will be born tamed, so don't worry about having to tame each one that is born.

Breed High-Level Boars with Each Other

The Piggy that is given birth to will have its level be based on one of the parent Boars. This means you should breed high-level boars with each other to ensure that a high-level Piggie comes out. The higher the level, the more materials they will drop when killed.

How to Raise a Piggy

Wait for them to Grow

The only thing you will need to do in order for the piggies to grow into boars, is to wait. They will grow into boars in no time! You cannot interact them until they do grow and killing them will yield you no materials.

Keep them in the Pen

Make sure you keep the piggies in the pen. If let out, they can wander around and end up wandering away from your base and into the wilderness.

Why Breed Animals

Easy Meat and Materials

Breeding Boars is the fastest way of getting plenty of tamed Boars. Which gives you a place to easily kill Boars for meat and materials. You will not have to go out and hunt for Boars which means relying on luck for their spawns and such.
