The Water Buffalo is a class 9 bovine. It can be hunted in the Parque Fernando. The Water Buffalo is one of two species of buffalo in the game, the other one being the Cape Buffalo.


The water buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) is the largest member of the Bovini tribe, can grow to be nearly 2 meters at the shoulder and frequently weigh over a tonne, fully grown, making them visibly larger than the African Cape Buffalo. They use their massive horns to defend their herd, fight for dominance, or spar with other herd-mates. Feral herds pose many problems to local communities (namely overgrazing and territorialism), especially in farmlands, and are difficult to fight off due to their imposing stature. On the other hand, domesticated populations are the most depended upon species of cattle in the world and are especially suitable for tilling rice fields, while their milk is richer in fat and protein than that of dairy cattle.
