The Bone Head is one of the head evolutions that you can apply to your shark in Maneater.
Unlocked by defeating the Apex Orca, the Bone Head evolution is a part of the Bone Set, which offers a damage reduction bonus.
Bone Head Official Description
“This evolution armours your head in an unbreakable bone helmet.”
How to Unlock the Bone Head
To unlock the Bone Head evolution, you need to progress through the story until you’re asked to find the Grotto in Caviar Key.
In Caviar Key, you then need to follow the Apex mission line, which requires you to swim to specific locations and gorge yourself on the Apex’s favoured prey.
This will eventually call out the Apex Orca that rules the area, which you battle by travelling to its location.
Defeat the Apex Orca in Caviar Key to unlock the Bone Head evolution.
Bone Head Parameter Boosts
A Tier 5 Bone Head grants a vast range of passive effects, adds to the Bone Set bonus, and gives the following parameter boosts:
- +6 Defence
- +6 Damage
These ratings parameters are made up of 20 sections, with each needing five points to be filled. So, a +5 ratings parameter boost fills the equivalent of one section.
