Fur head detail.png

The fur head is an item created during the quest Getting Ahead by using bear fur on a clay head while having a needle and thread in the player's inventory.

It is used to attempt to convince Gordon that players have killed the Headless Beast after failing to do so with a clay head. However, he will still not believe them, and players must use red dye on it (while having a needle and thread) to create the bloody head, which finally convinces him.

If the player lacks a needle or thread to create the fur head, the chatbox will state: You do not have the required items to make a fur head. You need a clay head, some fur, a needle and some thread.

When created, the player performs an emote with a needle and soft clay in hands.

The player can only have one fur head at a time. Attempting to craft another with a fur head in the player's inventory results in the chatbox stating "You already have a fur head." If the player banks the fur head and crafts another one in the inventory, the fur head stored in the bank is destroyed. After mounting a bloody head to the Mounted Head Space in Gordon and Mary's house, the fur head (and other fake head variants) are destroyed and can no longer be crafted again.

The fur head is destroyed upon death. If lost during the quest, the player needs to craft another.

This item cannot leave a placeholder in the bank.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Using a vial of blood or a blood pint on the fur head brings up dialogue about it being a waste, and to try using something else.
  • Using raw bear meat, raw beef or a raw chicken on the fur head results in the chatbox stating "Whatever you're trying to do here definitely won't work."
