This article is about Stray. For a list of all skeleton-related articles, see Skeleton (Disambiguation).

A Stray is a variation of the skeleton Mob that is usually found only in cold Biomes. They were introduced alongside the polar bear and husk mobs.

Overview

The stray is one of three mobs added in The Frostburn Update. This mob is biome-specific. It is a variation of a Skeleton that wears torn clothing. Its behavior is also similar to a Skeleton.

Like the skeleton, strays are easiest to kill using either a diamond sword or a bow and arrow.

Effects

When the stray hits a player with an arrow, the player will be temporarily affected by Slowness. It will only inflict Slowness I, which means it can get away from a player easier if it wishes to do so and if they're not already cornered.

Strategy

  • Despite the stray's slow effect, fighting it is relatively similar to fighting a regular Skeleton.
  • A player can jump and sprint right at a lone stray with a sword and rapid click at it to kill it without taking any damage in the Windows 10 Edition, so long as the sword can kill the stray in three or less hits.
  • A Bow with either the Power IV or Power V enchantment can kill a stray in one hit.

Spawn

The stray will only spawn in colder biomes, such as the Taiga or Ice Plains. In these biomes, strays have an 80% chance of spawning instead of a skeleton when spawned directly under the sky.

Drops

Trivia

  • This is one of only two biome specific mob variants, the other one being the Husk, which often spawns in the desert instead of a Zombie.
  • Despite using arrows of slowness, the stray itself is not immune to arrows of slowness that are being used on it.
  • Some people believe the stray's torn clothing is torn dyed leather armor. However, it appears to be purely cosmetic, as Strays have been sighted wearing different kinds of armor.
