In-game[edit | edit source]

The Hammerhead Matriarch is a large dark red squid-like creature with 4 arms attached to its torso. Unlike its smaller variant the Hammerhead it does not attack by ramming the ship. Instead it tries to pierce the ships hull with its sharp talons and will birth several hammerhead spawn in swarms of up to five.

Hammerhead Spawn can get in the way of Coilgun fire and will mostly be there to attack any players who try to approach the matriarch. The spawn aren't capable of damaging the hull, but can deliver some blunt force trauma to divers, thus causing internal damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The eggs of baby Hammerheads are held in what may be a sac near the head of the Matriarch.
  • When a Hammerhead Matriarch births its young the sac near the head will rupture releasing babies, killing the mother.

In-game[edit | edit source]

They are weak and barely do damage to submarines and humans, they may not be hard to kill but they spawn in high quantity, which can waste a lot of resources to kill them. Can easily be dispatched using melee weapons like wrenches or knives, incendiary weapons are highly effective.
