— In-game description
The Wereshark is the eight Top-Secret Lab shark to be unlocked in Hungry Shark Evolution. It was added as part of the Halloween update in october, 2018. Its special powers are Hyper Speed and Moon Rush.
The Wereshark can only be viewed when the Top Secret Lab is unlocked with a high score of at least 350,000. Once an additional score prerequisite is met (scoring 750,000 points), it costs 180,000 coins or 900 gems to purchase, which is a regular price for one of the newest Top-Secret Lab sharks.
Abilities and diet
The Wereshark is a powerful shark that begins every game at a pretty large size (about a Great White Shark's). It grows rapidly, but growth is not saved. During in-game night time, the Wereshark grows a fur and increases in size, known as shape-shifting. According to the Wereshark's first mission, during night-time it changes into a wolf.
Do not confuse shape-shifting with Moon Rush. Shape-shifting happens during in-game night-time, regardless of the points earnt. It does not affect the prey and predators. Moon Rush is nearly the same thing as Gold Rush. The difference between Moon Rush and Gold Rush is the partly transparent dark overlay on the edges of the screen and fish that moves fast like the tuna and swordfish will move a lot slower.
The Wereshark has an health bar similar to the Tiger Shark's in regular form, but a slightly larger health bar during in-game night time. The boost bar is, in both forms, similar to the Great White Shark's.
During daytime, the Wereshark can't consume mines or extremely big enemy sharks. However, it can destroy vehicles and eat jellyfish. During night-time, the Wereshark can consume bombs and even destroy certain walls while boosting, similar to Leo (Liopleurodon).
