Killing the Alpha Croco and Alpha Bush Devil in Dinkum

Alpha animals are strong enemies in Dinkum. They have powerful and unique attacks that are unlike their normal variants. To kill the Alpha animals in Dinkum, it’s important to time their special attacks. When an Alpha animal attacks, a red indicator flashes above their heads. 

Strafe and try to hit the Alpha from the side or back. When the Alpha has white dots above his head, you can usually get off 2-3 quick attacks in succession.

It would help if you also stocked up on food that provides you with buffs so you can survive the fight.

As long as you don’t take too much damage from their unique moves and side-step them when they attack, you should be able to defeat them, even if it takes a second. As you practice, you’ll get better at timing their attacks.
