Kenshi Wiki


Goats are passive animals in Kenshi. Goats are Herbivores that roam the map, usually in groups of around 8. They can be knocked unconscious or killed for their Raw Meat and Animal Skin. Goats do not have Nests.

Goats can be found in groups following Nomads, who will usually sell the goats to the player. A unique goat named Cornelius can be purchased from Animal Traders.

Goats can also be found in the Tower of Goats in Sinkuun.

Other Locations[]


  • Goats, as other non-pack domestic animals, have a backpack slot which was not intended by the devs and should have been removed. It cannot be interacted with.


  • Goats are excellent animal scouts for the player that doesn't want to lose any of the characters. They can also be used as decoys in battle. The cost of both manoeuvres is usually 1 goat so use it sparingly.
