Combat[]

This section describes how to fight against the Alpha Leedsichthys.

General[]

The Alpha Leedsichthys has the increased movement speed and attack power that alphas typically possess. However, it is unique in that it's the only Alpha Creature that has less health than its regular counterpart. Because of this, it is relatively easy to kill and can be dispatched with a Megalodon or Sarco without much risk. Be careful not to accidentally run into other aquatic predators.

Strategy[]

The Alpha Leedsichthys is as large as a normal Leedsichthys with an equally awful attack rate/turning radius- use a water mount and dispatch it with ease.

When lured to beachside, firearms may be utilized (though not recommended.)

Weaponry[]

Crossbows and TEK Rifles can be used to chip the Alpha Leedsichthys from a distance. As with most aquatic creatures, however, it is generally safer and more effective to use a mount.

Dangers[]

It is a natural boat destroyer. Like the Leedsichthys, it is capable of tearing down rafts if you don't see it coming, but it can do so even faster than regular Leedsichthys

It should be noted that, unlike the regular variant, the Alpha Leedsichthys can outspeed Motorboats.

Weakness[]

It has relatively low health, so high-damage mounts can kill it very easily.

Notes/Trivia[]

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Alpha Leedsichthys, see the relevant Wikipedia article.

  • Other Alphas include the Alpha Tusoteuthis, Alpha Mosasaurus, Alpha Megalodon, Alpha Raptor, Alpha Carnotaurus and the Alpha Rex.
  • The Alpha Leedsichthys will only attack boats on sight; it will not attack the player without provocation.
  • Can destroy rafts in one hit, Even if you have a "rock boat", with stone structures around and beneath it.
  • The Alpha Leedsichthys is white in reference to the novel Moby Dick as there was a white whale that a captain died trying to kill. This is also why it drops the Captain's Hat Skin.
  • The Alpha Leedsichthys can be scraped for prime fish meat, much like it's regular counterpart.
  • The Alpha Leedsichthys is the only alpha that doesn't have an increase in size.
    • And also the only alpha that is not aggressive to players, but aggressive to rafts and boats instead.
