Raft How to Kill Shark

A guide detailing the easiest strategies I have found to deal with The Shark.

How to Kill Shark

Fighting the Shark is a constant battle you deal with on your Raft, but he is very easy to fight in the open water once you know the strategy.

How to Kill Shark in Raft

From times to times, the shark will attack your raft, if you don’t stop it, it will break a square and if there is anything on it, it will disappear with it.

To stop the shark, it takes 4 hits with a rock or a wooden spear, 2 hits with a metal spear or stone arrow, 1 hit with a machete or metal arrow.

Use the hammer to repair the raft and add foundation armor ( Metal Ingot + 2 Nails per square ) to make it unbreakable.

Hit just after the shark opens its mouth with a spear to deal damage without getting bitten ( it will turn around and swim in the other direction for a few seconds then charge back at you ). Takes some “getting use to” but once you get it, it should be easy. You can try to hit it a second or third time when it turns around by aiming its tail.

Hit from the raft with the bow to hurt the shark while being safe, you can also do it under water but then remember to also shoot when it opens its mouth so that the shark will turn around instead of biting you.

Once dead, it will give you 4 Raw SharkMeat + 1 Shark Head.

When the shark dies, you have ~3m30s before it respawns.
