What are Instincts and how to unlock them in Goat Simulator 3

Instincts are more than just you being impulsive as you run around a city creating chaos as a goat. There is something more biological about it. Instincts are a specific game mechanic that you can utilize to obtain Karma in the game. Think of Instincts as small tasks that need to be completed to get points so that you can unlock additional gear for your goat to try out.

You can look at all of the Instincts that you have unlocked by going to the quest tab of the in-game menu. From there, select the Instincts section to view all of the available Instincts that you can perform. Some Instincts are as simple as performing tricks like backflips or triple jumps while others are more difficult like exploding 10 people at once or finding the hackerspace. Each time you complete one of these small tasks, you will get Karma. The amount of Karma given is shown next to the Instinct in the menu.

To unlock more Instincts, you need to discover Instinct Shrines. These shrines appear on the map after you have synchronized with the Goat Tower in an area. There are seven Instinct Shrines for you to discover around the map with the first one being inside the Illuminati headquarters. You will also get Karma for discovering the Instinct Shrines.
