A Pig Skin can be obtained by killing a Pig, Werepig, or Guardian Pig, or by deconstructing a Pig House with a Hammer or Deconstruction Staff or Pig Head with a Hammer. It is used to craft several items, such as the Football Helmet and Umbrella. Spiders and Pigs will see Pig Skin as food and will eat it if left on the ground. Additionally, it can be fed to Pigs to befriend them.

Gift Icon Downloadable ContentEdit

In the Reign of Giants DLC, Pig Skin is required in two more recipes: Scalemail and Summer Frest.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, Pig Skin can be obtained from Wildbores, which replace Pigs. Pig skin can also be used to craft Spyglasses and Wildbore Houses. Snakes will eat Pig Skin left on the ground.

Prototype TipsEdit

  • A good way to obtain Pig Skin is to find Pig Heads and dismantle them with a Hammer to get 2 Pig Skin and 2 Twigs. They can be found in Marsh Biomes near Merm camps and around Touch Stones.
  • A good way to obtain Pig Skin is to befriend a few Pigs, then take them to Beefalo during mating season.
  • Another method of getting Pig Skin is to force Pigs and Wildbores to transform into Werepigs. This way, the player is certain to get 1 Pig Skin, in addition to 2 Meats when they are killed. 4 Monster Meats are required to transform either into a Werepig, though Monster Meat can be obtained relatively easy by killing Spiders.
  • The easiest but most counterproductive way would be to build a Hammer and destroy a Pig House or a Wildbore House, which will drop half the amount of Pig Skin required to craft them, in addition to half of the other crafting materials. Keep in mind that Pigs and Wildbores can no longer spawn should one destroy their houses, and each house destroyed is one fewer Pig or Wildbore spawning in that area.

Placeholder Trivia Edit

  • In the game files, Pig Skin is listed as a food, but it is also listed as "HORRIBLE", which is why it is inedible for players.
  • Pig Skin was edible in older Don't Starve versions, giving negligible Hunger.
