How to Kill Screecher in Raft

Although Raft is perceived as a pretty peaceful game with its attractions of sailing through different islands and exploring some niche towns, it doesn’t exempt from having its fair share of enemies and bosses. Like many brutal bosses found on different muddy trails of Large Islands, Screechers are a threat you’ll often come across. In this Raft guide, we’ll be looking into what Screecher is and how you can efficiently kill it.

How to Kill Screecher in Raft

Screecher appears as a black and red bird that is described as death from above. It is a bird that obviously does not want to mind its own business and wants to pick up on you with its vast attack radius. You can encounter it on Large Islands and randomly come across it. This annoying bird carries a huge boulder in between its claws and will drop it on you to give you massive damage that will ultimately kill you.

Once this annoying bird targets you, you will have to keep an eye on where it flies and what it is doing. The Screecher usually will pick up the boulder after you encounter it. And while it does that, to your luck, it makes a noise. It will tug for about three times before it finally gets the rock in between its claws and then flies directly towards you to drop it and deal damage. Whenever that happens, run for your life or attack this nasty bird.

Before talking about attack strategies, you first need to equip yourself with some bows and spears to kill a Screecher and avoid getting hurt. The Bow and arrow will allow you to land a couple of shots onto the bird and kill it quickly. The trick is to shoot the bird as it’s coming toward you. You can land about two to three hits if you aim correctly and account for the arrow drop.

Once it’s directly above you, you can sprint by holding shift to move away from the boulder’s path. Consistently keeping on the move will confuse the Screecher and prevent it from getting an accurate shot at you. Additionally, you can also move laterally around a hill, making the Screecher follow you in large and predictable circles, allowing you to get a few easy hits off of it.

Something we recommend to do is to confuse Screecher and to move it to a wider landscape to detect the movement of this bird better. Being present in between trees can be confusing to spot where this bird is, resulting in a lot of damage for you. On the other hand, if you move to another spot with fewer obstacles, this bird will follow you there, too, making it easier for you to attack it.

Moreover, you can also make good use of your Spear by using it when the Screecher is on the ground to pick up the rock. Although there are fewer chances that this enemy will pick up a rock nearby you, you can still take the opportunity to run up to it and attack it.

Apart from attack strategies, the best way to avoid Screecher’s attack is to hide behind a rock, inside caves, and over hard-to-spot ledges. Moreover, constant movement will also delay the boulder drop, which will buy you time to sort out your attack strategy. And there you have it. Following these strategies will make it easier to deal with a Screecher in Raft, and constant bow and spear attacks will eventually kill.
