If you’re playing 7 Days to Die and have noticed that animals aren’t spawning, don’t worry – you’re not the only one struggling. Players have been encountering this dilemma, but there are ways to fix it.
Read on to find out what’s causing the problem and how to solve it.
No Animals Spawning?
In the game, animals are scarce and you can’t actively hunt them, so if you happen to spot a deer or a boar, consider it a bonus.
Chickens and rabbits are almost certainly out of the game. Explore new hunting grounds.
The spawning of animals is timed for each loaded piece. If you miss the chicken or rabbit, it can appear that there are indeed no animals around.
Simply move to a different location with deer and wild boar abound. You may also find wolves that can frequent in various areas. The plains and snow biomes might also help you spot the animals.
How Do You Get Animals on 7 Days to Die?
You may use Animal Tracker, a Perception Attribute General Perception Perk. Crouch down and use your sharp vision to locate the trails of small animals such as rabbits, snakes, and chickens.
Animals that have been tracked will be indicated on your compass and map. Alternatively, your hawk-like senses may spot deer and boars as well as sly predators  such as wolves or coyotes.
