Hoop Snakes are monsters that live in the Tar Swamp area of Fossil Island.

They can be stunned using a weapon's crush option (or being unarmed), allowing the player to pick up the stunned hoop snake. From the inventory, snakes can be rolled in a direction, mainly used for stunning tar monsters.


The estimated drop rate is based off 30 kills.[1]

  • The hoop snake derives from a piece of Australian folklore designed to scare tourists. It is described as a snake that bites its tail in order to roll in a hoop and travel at an incredibly high speed before uncurling and throwing itself at a victim.
