  • Terrifying Resort.
  • Scary Pizzeria.
  • Arena. (Wave 5)


  • It is okay to use melee weapons to kill a Hippo, but you must be quick, as the Hippo can deal damage pretty quickly.
    • It is still more advisable to shoot it as it has fast attack speed.
  • Going in circles around a Hippo will decrease its chances of hitting you.
  • A group of Hippos can quickly chew one's health and armor away when attempting to melee them, it is recommended to shoot them instead.
  • Being a severed head, it is very vulnerable to headshots.


  • This and the Hippo gun share the same model, the only difference being the size of the hippo head model.
  • There is also a Hippo themed skin in the Armory.
  • This is one of the fastest attacking enemies in the game.
  • This monster could be referencing the beheaded animatronics from Five Nights at Freddy's. It is possible that the body of this monster exists, but only the head is present.
