The Howler Maze is an island connected to the mainland with water covered land bridges to the north. The neighbouring regions are Heng and Gut. The island is known to be uninhabited, but is instead dominated by Crabs. A noticable amount of ruins are located here.


There are no Major Towns or Minor Outposts in the Howler Maze. This zone does not spawn Camps.

Ancient Locations

These are places which do not have competent inhabitants. Ancient Locations are usually lost outposts or ruins. Beware: sometimes these locations contain territorial protectors such as Security Spiders.


Nests are temporary locations which can spawn randomly and typically belong to Animals.

Homeless Spawns

These are squads which spawn without being tied to a location, camp, or nest. This list is in order of likelihood.

The island might be hard to build in because of the sporadic Acid Rain, Crabs, and dry land bridge. Also the island has what to appears to be either a crater or volcano caldera on the south side.
