The water buffalo is a large bovid originating in South Asia, Southeast Asia, and China. Today, it is also found in Europe, Australia, South America and some African countries. The skin of buffalo is black, but some specimens may have dark, slate-coloured skin. Albinoids are present in some populations. Between 1824 and 1849, water buffalo were introduced into the Northern Territory of Australia.


When hunting Water Buffalo, the hunter must be careful not to get too close. The animal may charge the player. If the animal hits the player, the player is put into the Player Hurt state.
