A Guide to the achievements of Raft.
Other Raft Guides:
Beginner Bird Hunter
Kill A Bird
How to do: Kill a seagull. The easiest way is with a farm plot with flower seeds (easily replaceable if they get eaten), to lure the seagull down, or a scarecrow. Shoot the bird with a bow and arrow. It IS possible to kill a seagull with a spear, but it isn’t likely and very frustrating to do. While with a bow and arrow, the seagull won’t even fly away if shot.
Intermediate Bird Hunter
Kill 10 Birds
How to do: As with the Beginner Achievement, Kill 10 Seagulls.
Expert Bird Hunter
Kill 50 Birds
How to do: As with the Beginner and Intermediate achievements, simply kill 50 birds.
Beginner Shark Hunter
Kill A Shark
How to do: Kill a shark using a spear. Can be done over time as the shark attacks the raft and you fend him off, or by facing him directly in the water.
Number of Hits To Kill:
Wooden Spear > 30 Stabs
Metal Spear > 15 Stabs
Bow and Arrow -> 10 Shots
How to kill:
I find the easiest way to kill the shark is to have a metal spear and dive into the water (be sure to anchor your Raft or you will get left behind!) You want to stab AS SOON as the shark opens its mouth to bite you. If you stab too late it will still bite you, even if you damage it. The moment the shark opens its mouth, stab it, and it will turn and retreat. It comes back from the same direction it left, so keep your eye where it went. It is much harder to fight at night than during the day.
