How To Join a Werewolf Pack in the Sims 4
The Sims 4 Werewolf expansion not only added diversity to the game but a whole new social dimension like the ability to join a pack.
But how do you become a werewolf and join a pack? In this article, we’ll explain how to join a werewolf pack in Sims 4.
How to Become a Werewolf in the Sims 4
In order to join the ranks of a werewolf pack, you first need to become a werewolf. But you can only catch the curse of lycanthropy if you’re not affiliated with any other creature group (vampires, aliens, and fairies). There are several ways you can become a werewolf, only some are easier than others.
These are the options:
- Make a new werewolf sim
This is the easiest option of all. When making a new Sim, pick the “Add occult sim option,” and then “Add werewolf.” Your new Sim will be afflicted by the curse from the start.
- Get bitten by another werewolf
If you’re currently working on a career and don’t want to abandon your Sim to make a new one, this is the way to do it. Firstly, you need to get to Moonwood Mill and find a werewolf to provoke into a scuffle. It will take a few in-game days for your Sim to transform, and the signs like hunger and mood swings will be the first to appear. A red aura will be visible on your Sim in the lower left corner of the screen before the transformation.
If you want to get bitten on a voluntary basis, you can also befriend a werewolf. At a certain point, you’ll have the social interaction option to ask for a bite. However, in order for it to work this way, they need to have “Curse Bearer” unlocked.
To do so, follow these steps:
- Pick the werewolf and open the menu in the lower right corner of the screen where happiness meter is situated.
- Click the option “Ability points.”
- In the “Werewolf abilities” menu, you’ll see the “Curse Bearer.”. Unlock it to proceed.
- Raise a werewolf child
For the final option, you need to have two werewolves start a relationship and have a child. If both parents are werewolves the chance is 100%, and if one of them is human, there’s a 50% chance. But just like the voluntary bite option, it takes time. Be patient and work on it.
Even simpler, but perhaps not acceptable to achievement hunters, use cheats. Press CTRL + SHIFT + C to open the command line, then type or paste “
traits.equip_trait trait_occultwerewolf” and press ENTER to confirm. The same can be done on the console version of the game. On Xbox, you press and hold “LT + RT + LB + RB” for a couple of seconds. And on PlayStation,“L1 + L2 + R1 + R2”. That will open the cheats menu where you can find the occult transformation cheat.

How to Join a Werewolf Pack
Now it’s time to choose a pack, join it, and eventually become the alpha. There are two options: the Wildfangs and the Moonwood collective. The former believe that a werewolf should be animalistic, wild, free, and a hunter. The latter are a civilized group and live similarly to the human Sims, trying to tame the wild side. Once you decide, you need to do the following:
1. Befriend the pack leader
Good relations are a key to becoming a full pack member. For Wildfangs, you’ll need to find Rory Oaklow and be friendly with her. Note that she doesn’t have a single location so use the “Manage worlds” option to find her. For the Moonwood collective, you’ll need to befriend Kristopher Volkov at the Collective cabin.
Just like with any other relationship, you need to reach 40% – 59% on the relationship scale in order to be considered a friend.
2. Ask them to join
When you become a friend of the pack, social interaction will become available with the leader. After that, you’ll be challenged to complete three trials of your choice to prove yourself.
3. Complete the given challenges
“Demonstrate Scavenging,” “Give an Uncommon or Rare Collectible,” and “Give Excellent Quality Food” are considered the easiest for beginners. Regardless of the pack you choose, the trials will be the same.
4. Ask for a full membership
Having completed the challenges, talk to the alpha again to make it official. Don’t worry. If you’re friends with both groups, this won’t affect the relationship. However, you can only become a member of one of the groups for that playthrough.
Now you’re an official member of a werewolf pack. Make sure to play the game according to the pack values to move up the ranks. And once you’re ready, challenge the alpha for leadership.
The Best (Expansion) Pack
The Werewolf expansion pack is one of the best in the paranormal series. It brought a good amount of new content to enrich the game, but also gave enough space for the player to make their own story. The choice of two groups with distinct personalities, and a ranking system will definitely benefit the fans by adding extra hours of fun and replayability.
