First Appearance

Update 0.15.0

Strays are Hostile Mobs added in Update 0.15.0.

Spawning

Strays are variants of Skeletons that have a 4/5 chance to spawn in place of Skeletons in snowy Biomes, and spawn at light level 7 or below.

Behavior

Strays are stronger variations of Skeletons. Strays appear to be Skeletons wearing ragged clothing and holding a Bow. They fire Tipped Arrows which inflict Slowness I for 30 seconds upon any target they hit. Like Skeletons, they avoid Wolves.

Combat

It is best to use a Bow when attacking a Stray. Using melee attacks is not recommended as Strays inflict Slowness I which prevents the Player from charging too quickly, making it possible for the Stray to easily shoot him/her.

Trivia

  • The Stray Mob was first hinted by Jeb in a tweet, when he posted a picture of a new 'archer' Mob.
  • Strays have the regular Skeleton drops, but can also drop Tipped Arrows of Slowness.
  • Like regular Skeletons, Strays burn in the daylight.
  • Strays have a chance to wear white dyed Leather Armor. Despite this, they drop regular Leather Armor when killed.
  • The Stray is made up of two models, mainly "stray", and "stray_overlay".
  • Mobs which can apply status effects on the Player include (listed in order of addition to Minecraft): Cave Spiders, Wither Skeletons, Witchs, Strays, Husks, Withers, Elder Guardians, and Shulkers.
  • When given Invisibility, its overlay will still appear.
