Meese are animals which can be found running across the dirt and asphalt roads around Peräjärvi at night and early morning. The moose have no regard for road safety, and will cross the road without checking that there aren't any vehicles driving their way.

Coming in contact with a galloping moose while driving a vehicle at a high speed will likely prove fatal to the driver and/or the vehicle. Once killed, the corpse of the moose will remain in the game world until the game is exited with or without saving.

A dead moose can be harvested for moose meat by hitting it with an ax. Eight pieces of meat can be harvested from a single moose; the meat will start to spoil as soon as it pops out of the moose, and it takes about 20 minutes to become rotten. It is advised to bring the ball grill and a bag of charcoal along when hunting.


There are 13 possible starting points for the moose, and each of these starting points have 3 different ending points. One of these 39 routes is randomly chosen whenever a moose spawns:

  • Technically this species (Alces alces) should be called elk, like it is called in European languages (Norwegian and Danish: elg, Swedish: älg, German: elch). Moose is the North American word for elk, as the word elk has been given to a different species of elk (Cervus canadensis). The Finnish word for moose is hirvi. Even though the word looks similar to the noun hirviö (monster) or adjective hirveä (terrifying), etymologically they have different backgrounds.
