In this aspect it is similar to the bear, with a longer range and a bit more stamina.
It can kill a few unmasked greedlings within its range with one hit, but not all of them. The fact that some greedlings can survive its charge, makes it very risky to rely on its attack for protecting the wolf pup, even on the first nights. On late-game waves it's useless for defense. See history note.
During the rest buff, it can charge a few times in a row without getting tired.
The wolf howls when it sees the moon. Howling it can rest, recharging its stamina and receiving the rest buff; i.e.:
- it only howls at night (never during the day)
- it only howls on plains (never inside forests)
- it can howl under a Blood Moon
Usually it only howls once per nighttime, but if it has done any charge attack after howling, and the moon is still there, it may howl a second time to fully recharge before the dawn.
