Animal Instinct is a Companion mod that gives Enemy Radar and Loot Detection effects to the companion's owner. It can be equipped on all Companions, such as Sentinels, Kavats, Kubrows and MOAs.

  • Animal Instinct can be acquired as a random reward from completing high-level Nightmare Mode missions. It can also be occasionally offered as an Alert reward.
  • This mod is available as part of the 2100 and 4300 Platinum purchase packs.


  • Vertical range of detection is capped at 12 meters, making the area of detection a flat disk.
  • Venari can equip this mod, and if another Companion has it equipped both instances will stack their effects.


  • Despite not being a Corrupted Mod, Animal Instinct features a prime unit in its card image, in this case the Wyrm Prime.
  • Previously, the official website's Buy Platinum page incorrectly displayed the Enemy Sense as +20m at max rank. This has since been fixed.
