Flies as seen in an abandoned camp.
Near corpses left alone for a while

Flies are merely decorative creatures that spawn around most dead entities on the peninsula. They generally spawn after a short amount of time has passed around carcasses of wildlife or the corpses of cannibals and mutants. This is a good indication that the player has left the meat long enough to rot.

Flies can also be found around existing decorative corpses; typically blackened; across the peninsula, for instance in cannibal villages or at abandoned camps. They can often be heard before the player notices the body, especially in the caves.

Flies cannot be interacted with and serve no purpose other than to provide deeper immersion. They are not listed in the Nature Guide of the Survival Guide.
