The Sims 4 Werewolves: How to Find Greg

Where is Greg in The Sims 4 Werewolves and what does he do? The Sims 4 Werewolves is one of the most lore-rich add-ons to hit the gargantuan life sim in a long time. Not only does it do an impressive job of revamping what we’ve come to expect from occult-themed DLCs in The Sims 4, but it actually ties the lore behind werewolves together with that of the Vampires and Realm Of Magic game packs, in retrospect. giving them better stories in the process. Sparkling stuff.

Every character in the werewolf hometown of Moonwood Mill has a story to tell, but perhaps the most interesting – and certainly the most elusive – is Greg. No last name, just: Greg. This new NPC was teased heavily in promotional material prior to the pack’s release, but despite appearing in the game itself, he’s a tough wolfman to track down. There’s no such thing as a mystery to rallying Sims players around a pre-created character, so on this page we’ll be sharing all of Greg’s good gossip, including where to find him, details on how it behaves in-game and why your Sim might want to make the effort to track it down.

How to Find Greg in The Sims 4 Werewolves

Like several NPC inhabitants of Moonwood Mill, Greg resides in a shell building that is not placed on editable terrain on the map. This means that you can’t just go straight to his location and instead have to do some very light research in order to figure out where he lives.

There is, however, a big clue as to Greg’s location on the Moonwood Mill map. When viewing the city using the Travel menu or Manage Worlds, you can spot a building about halfway to the far left of the map, just above the reinforced bridge that leads out of the town. It’s not a “real” building in the game, so it’s quite stylized, but you can probably tell it’s some sort of run-down cottage. This, as you probably guessed, is Greg’s house.

To get there, you need to go to any lot in Moonwood Mill and then find it on your own. It’s easy to turn around when exploring in The Sims 4, so the easiest way to stay on track here is to follow the main walkway that connects the north and south sections of Moonwood Mill. Cross the river into the north side of town and immediately hang left, and you’ll find yourself in the path of Greg’s trailer.

Once there, you might be (un)lucky to spot Greg himself stomping around in his yard, in which case you can approach him and try to strike up a conversation. It is particularly prone to showing up near the full moon, unsurprisingly. If he’s not there, however, you can get him out by interacting with the warning signs at the edge of his property and selecting the Inspect Warning option. Or you can just walk away…

What does Greg do in The Sims 4 Werewolves?

As well as being the central character in the lore linking the Werewolves, Vampires, and Realm Of Magic game packs in the story (details of which can be found in several new in-game books and which I won’t spoil here), Greg has a few more concrete goals as NPCs you can interact with.

If you’re looking to turn your human Sim into a werewolf, for example, you can show up at their house and try to provoke them into a fight. (It doesn’t tend to be very difficult, though it’s slightly less prone to attacking a human than a vampire or other werewolf.) A human Sim will almost inevitably lose, in which case they’ll contract Werebies from Greg . This starts a countdown that lasts around two in-game days, after which they’ll turn into werewolves if you can’t find a cure.

Greg’s greatest importance in the Werewolves game pack, however, is part of the Lone Wolf aspiration, which has “fight and beat Greg” as its end goal before it ends. Luckily, Greg’s “boss fight” isn’t very complex, since it only requires your character to win a regular fight with him as an initiate via the social menu, not take direct control of the action. Unfortunately, Greg is incredibly hard to beat, even for another werewolf.

A social options menu in The Sims 4 Werewolves gives you the choice of trying to peacefully approach Greg.

Alternatively, you can try befriending Greg, if you’re feeling particularly brave. It generally does not attack human Sims, spellcasters, etc. on sight like he would with a vampire or a werewolf, so there’s a slight chance of being greeted friendly for those life states, although I personally wouldn’t bet on it. There’s even an informal challenge growing in the Sims 4 community that requires you to get “Gregnant,” which is an absolutely awful portmanteau that’s been lodged in my brain since I first heard it, and now I passed my curse on you. But it demonstrates that befriending and even seducing Greg is, in theory, doable. Don’t ask me what happens if you move it in with you; I suspect this will break Lone Wolf’s aspiration for all that backup. And uh, good luck, I guess.

How to win a fight against Greg

Keep in mind that Greg is technically the final boss of the Werewolves game pack, and you really aren’t supposed to be able to win a fight against him as soon as you enter Moonwood Mill. To get to the point where the game challenges you to defeat him, you need to have already won fights against five other werewolves, which should have honed your Sim’s combat skills somewhat.

That being said, Sims players may not expect to need to bring real strategy to a showdown; and it seems defeating Greg requires a surprising amount of specific planning. Werewolf Sims hoping to beat Greg in one-on-one combat should strive to have the following skills and abilities in their possession:

  • Maxed out his Fitness skill or came close to it (level 9 or 10).
  • Have reached the Apex Wolf level (highest rank).
  • Have unlocked the Alpha Wolf ability for a boost to combat encounters.

As with any business in The Sims, starting out in a good mood will also increase your chances of success. Eating a meal of Luna Fish beforehand can also grant a helpful buff that will increase your chances of success a bit.

Luckily, losing a fight to Greg has no particular long-term consequences if you’re already a werewolf. If at first you don’t succeed, take a few hours of gameplay to heal your wounds and wait for the negative moods to dissipate before trying again. So, once again, I wish you good luck!
