Subnautica: Below Zero - All leviathans and where to find them

You don’t want to run into these creatures by accident.
Subnautica: Below Zero - All leviathans and where to find them

By far the biggest feature of Subnautica: Below Zero is the leviathan class creatures that roam the waters. In the original game, these creatures spawned countless YouTube videos of creators reacting to seeing or being attacked by them for the first time.

Obviously, these creators didn’t know where to look for the giant fish that inhabit the waters of Planet 4546B. Luckily for those who are hopping into Below Zero for the first time, there’s a full list of every leviathan class creature and where they can be found in the game. 

Every leviathan in Subnautica: Below Zero

In total, there are seven leviathans in Subnautica: Below Zero. This is right around what the original game had so players will still have to tread lightly if they don’t want to be spooked or attacked in Below Zero. Most of the leviathans you can find are predatory and will attack you if they see you or your vehicle floating around in the water. 

Fortunately, not every giant creature will attack, so you can have some breathing room when visiting them. If you want to know the name and location of every leviathan in the game, keep reading below.

Players won’t run into every leviathan Subnautica: Below Zero has to offer if they’re careful, but each one is unique and gives the game most of its horror feel. So if you’re someone who wants to be scared or simply see everything in Below Zero, hunting down these leviathans is something to put on your to-do list.
