Dead branches can also be collected by climbing up halfway a larger dead tree andShake ico 128.pngshaking the tree. Shaking the tree in this fashion will make ten dead branches available to collect at the base of the tree, provided you shake the tree long enough.


Four Dead Branches on a stockpile can be used to Construct ico 128.png build a MindIcon BranchBarrier.pngBranch Barrier.

A Dead Branch can be altered by Strip ico 128.png stripping to make a MindIcon Stick.pngStick.

A Dead Branch can also be altered into Stick by Hit ico 128.png hitting with most rocks or hard tools.

It also possible to transform a Dead Branch directly into a Sharpened Stick by Hit ico 128.png hitting with most rocks or hard tools but it takes additional swings with the tool.

The Dead Branch can kill animals but breaks after use, so a single Dead Branch will not be enough if you plan on taking down any larger apex predators.
