Assassin’s Creed Origins animal lairs are spread across the entirety of the game. Players can use these lairs to hunt for crafting materials, XP, and killing the alpha animal raises the loot value of the corpse.
Killing animals is easy if you manage to get close to them as much as possible. There is a particular section early on in the game that actually trains you to sneak close to the animals, highlighting its importance. There are some key points you need to keep in mind.
Use Senu to scout the area carefully and identify the leader of the pack. Locate vantage points as well as find routs that can help you get close without spooking the animals. Some of the animals are less active during the night, making it easier for you to grab them.
