A small but fast creature capable of chasing down prospectors, biting and slashing them with its claws. Easy to kill, but there is always more than one. Like every hostile creature they will attack players as soon as they're alerted of their presence.


When in a passive state, the Strider can do two different actions: The first is sleeping on the ground for some time, during which it's blind, but can still be alerted by noises. Alternatively, the Strider can roam around an area, effectively patrolling it.

When a Strider enters the combat state it will bark at the player, alerting other Creatures nearby of the prospectors presence, before attacking them. Any sleeping creature will be woken up by the barks and also attack the prospector.


If the Strider reaches a prospector it will attack them with bite and slash attacks. A Strider cannot jump or climb, which means that a prospector can stand on a ledge or object and the Strider will not be able reach them.

A light attack from a Knife kills a regular Strider in one hit, making it an effective way to take out Striders in relative silence.


Killing a Strider has the chance to drop some Loot. Killing a Strider during the Storm increases the drop chances for some items.

Strider Variants

The Strider has one variant, the Heavy Strider.

Heavy Strider

The Heavy Strider is a grey Strider with stronger statistics like 150Hit Points Icon.pngHit Points, 27Armor Icon.pngArmor and 10Heavy Converter.pngPenetration for his attack. Instead of the dropping Strider Flesh and Strider Head Heavy Striders can drop Heavy Strider Flesh and Heavy Strider Head.

A charging Heavy Strider is faster than a sprinting prospector and can attack while moving, which means it's impossible to outrun one in an open field.
