Shark Attack Tips:
* You should craft a wooden spear, which is a tool that allows you to attack the
shark. However, you want to play defensively. If you jump in to the water to
fight it, you will lose. It is a shark. You will lose. Dont try it.
* Wait for the shark to attack your raft, and then hit him with your spear.
After four hits with the wooden spear, he will let go of the raft.
* You can also distract it by using shark bait, which will keep him in place for
a while, useful if you want to do some underwater expeditions.
How to Use The Research Station:
You can craft a handy station in this game, the research station. Using it
correctly will allow you to craft new things to develop your raft and character.
When placed, you can walk up to it and interact with the book on it, which will
open a menu showing all of your researchable things. You can get new researchable
things by using blueprints, found in barrels. Place an item in the research spot
and it will fill in the research requirement of that item for every researchable
thing you have avaiable. All of them. Once you have met all of the requirements,
you can click learn, and then from that point on you can craft the item.
Tips & Tricks:
1. Placing Equipment
If Possible always place equipment over one or more tiles. That way if one gets
destroyed the item is still on the other piece so it is still there. You can also
put them on roofs and walls which can help making them even safer.
Remember, unlike the old raft you do not actually put the cup into the purifier
you only use it to put water in and take it out. This has lead to confusion among
many youtubers and it is likely that other players will also struggle with this
is they think it is like the old raft.
The bucket anchor is a one time use so make sure to use it wisely. Only use if
for big islands you can reach without needing anymore resources. Otherwise you
may not have enough. When you are anchored resources will not float by as the
stay in about the same spot. It also helps to throw it close to the island as
the raft is dragged that way.
If you take damage underwater it is probably the shark eating you and not the
plants if your oxygen bar still has oxygen left. If none is left then it is the
oxygen bar. (It may also be the eels)
5.Managing Your Status
We recommend keeping both of your stats high and at about the same level. If you
have high water and low food (and vice versa) it will affect your speed and other
things. Keeping them high also helps heal quicker and also if you run out of food
or water you will have more time to get it before you die.
Research in raft is simple and easy. However we would not recommend starting it
before you have decent resources as many things that the research table unlock
are for cosmetic or upgraded things that you already have in a lower form. When
you do decide to do some research put all the items in for the recipe you want
to unlock. (these items will also unlock in other recipes that feature them)
then when you have put in all the resources something takes to craft click the
learn button that appears. If you get a blueprint you also need to put it in the
top of the crafting table to allow that recipe to be unlocked by putting items
in. It sounds complicated but in game it is actually very simple.
7. Building Upwards
While most people will know how this works many wont as it has changed from
itch slightly and not everyone has played itch. When building upwards you need
supports from the floor below. In the old itch the supports used to need to be
massive and in the middle. However in the steam edition of raft the poles are
small and can go on the edges (and in the middle depending on how big the floor
is) They can hold 2 if they are on the side and 4 if they are positioned in the
middle. (pretty sure this is the case)
Seagulls like to eat your crops and can be a very be very irritating however
you can do things to stop this. The main way is to build a scarecrow which
scares off the seagulls, however they can be damaged by them if you are not
careful. A more simple way is to kill them but you need to be quick or they
will just fly way. You are rewarded for your efforts with 2 drumsticks and
5 – 8 feathers.
9.Easy movement of items
Shift + left click to instantly move items to chest or hotbar. (If chest
is not open.) Same system that many inventory style games use. This also
include middle clicking to split stacks as well as holding right click.
10. You can wear the shark head if you place it in one of your equipment slots.
Getting Food and Water:
Wood and water are two factors which will determine if you survive.
You can get food in two ways, growing it, and fishing.
Growing your Own Food:
To begin growing your own food, you need to craft a planter.
Currently, you can only craft a small one.
Craft it and place it, and keep an eye out on your inventory each time you
collect a barrel. You might get a potato, or a beet. You can plant these two
plants in the small planter, and like all plants, they need fresh water
(see below). Give the watered plants time, and stay near them, as seagulls
will try and eat them. You will get more plants back than you planted, making
this a renewable source of food, albeit time consuming.
You can craft a fishing rod here, which is an incredibly useful item to have.
It allows you to cast your rod and catch fish when prompted. However, eating these
raw fish is inefficient, and you can improve their hunger satisfaction by cooking
them. To do so, you need to craft a grill. That is straightforward, and once you
have it crafted you can place your fish upon it. However, you cant cook something
with the power of sheer willpower alone, you need some fire. Placing planks upon
the grill will allow it to cook. Give it time, and your fish will be cooked.
Getting Fresh Water:
Start by crafting a cup, and a purification station. You can collect saltwater
from the ocean whilst holding the cup, and place it on the purification station
similar to the grill. Also similar to the grill, you must add planks to it to
allow it to boil.
How to Get Sand and Clay:
Written by DemonsHW-
Want to make wet brick? Need Clay or Sand? I got ya!
* Find the island.
* Anchor near the island.
* Distract / Kill the shark.
* Go to bottom with a hook.
Infinite Equipment Durability:
Follow these simple steps;
1.Start with crafting the Oxygen bottle/Flippers.
2.Whenever the Oxygen bottle or the Flippers are used or when the durability
of the item has decreased, pull the item out of the equipment slot.
3.When youve pulled the item from the slot, the item will still be damaged.
But dont worry, Step 4 is going solve everything.
4.Then you put the item back into one of the equipment slots, and the item will
now be restored to full health and in pristine condition.
Tips and Tricks for Beginners:
Written by Yocandy4
This guide contains tips and tricks that I hope you will find useful.
-=Food and Water=-
Who doesnt love food? Who doesnt need water? Especially when you are stranded on
a Raft in the middle of an ocean! But how in the world do you get food and water
when you are stranded on a raft in the middle of an ocean. Here are some of the
ways you can get food and the one way you can get water in the game Raft
1. Fishing is a really good and easy way to get food. If you want to fish youll
need a fishing rod which you can craft using some wood and rope. Also in order to
make shark bait you need two different kinds of fish which can be obtained by
fishing with the fishing rod.
2. Potatoes and beets can be found in barrels. So if you need a quick snack try and
find a nice juciy potato or beet.. or well a nice soggy potato or beet in a barrel.
3. Growing food is another good way to get food, but it is probably one of the most
expensive ways as well. It is expensive because you need fresh water and a beet or
potato, and it also takes time for the crops to grow. But after you harvest what
you planted you will have double the amount of food that you planted.
4. The most dangerous way to get food is by killing the shark. I have discovered
that the first shark you see will follow you until you kill it. It does not ever
stop following you and give up unless you kill it. I figured this out one time when
the shark was attacking my raft and I killed it in only a few hits. So try to
everytime the shark attacks your raft hit it at least once and you will eventaully
kill it, and I learned from other people that you should stab the shark a couple
more times after it is dead to get all you can out of it. I did this and I got two
more shark meat and the shark head. So what they are saying is true you should
definately stab it a couple more times.
Those are all the ways I have personally got food from. I know there are more ways
to get food but I have not gotten food by them personally yet.
There is only one way I know of to get water that you can actaully drink without
it taking away at your thirst bar, and that is by purifiing water from the ocean
aka salt water. Sidenote you have to have purified water to water crops. All you
have to do to get water is to catch some supplies floating by, build a plastic
cup, then build a water purifier, then fill the plastic cup with salt water, then
put your saltwater into the water purifier, then give the water purifier some
fuel aka wood, and then Voila you have water. There is also another water purifier
that you can build but I have not built it yet.
-=General Tips and Tricks=-
These are some tips that are just useful to know in general.
1. The first six things that you should build in order are,
* Water Purifier and plastic cup
* Wodden Spear
* Small Grill
* Fishing Rod
* Reaserch table
The reason why I put the spear before the small grill is because the shark will be
attacking and destroying your raft and it is hard to place a small grill on a raft
when you have no raft. Also, as long as you are grabbing the barrels floating by
you should be able not to starve because barrels sometimes have beets and potatos
in them. For those who do not know the hammer lets you build a bigger raft, and
can also help you repair your raft if the shark attacks and does not destroy
-=Now back to the normal tips.=-
2. Drinking un purified water aka salt water will hurt your hydration bar not help it.
3. Try to reasearch the net as soon as possible.
4. If you see another raft floating in the distance and decide to ditch your raft and
go to that other one because it is bigger do not do this. Because you will find a
crate on that raft and once you open it the raft will start sinking. Now, that does
not mean dont get the crate on it, because the crate has some useful stuff in it,
but it means dont ditch your raft for the other raft.
5. Never lose track of your raft! I made this mistake and lost my raft I eventually
just abondaned that game.
6. If you want to hook supplies, something I have found usfuel is to use two fences
at one of the front corners of your raft and make a corner. That way you can run into
it and hook things and not have the fear of falling off.
7. Never use rope fences it is a waste of supplies. Instead just use plain wooden
fences. The reason why is because rope fences cost two wood and two rope, and normal
wooden fences use only 2 wood.
8. Use fences at the edges of your raft so you do not fall off.
9. I am not the first person to say this, thankfully I read other peoples tips before
something bad happened. But whenever you have something important like storage or a
water pruifier or anything, make sure that it is not on the outer edge of your raft
so that the shark does not destroy it. You can use the hammer to build platforms
10. You need to give the water purifier fuel aka wood in order for it to purify your
Expanding Your Raft:
* You cant live on only 4 squares, where are you going to place all your treasures?
* Craft a Building Hammer and get to work !
* Hold [RightClick] to choose what you want to build then use [LeftClick] to place it.
It will appear in green so that you can have an idea before placing it. You can rotate
it before placing it.
* Everything you build will cost you materials, usually planks but sometimes also ropes,
* If you misplace something you can break it using an Axe, it will refund you half
of the original cost.
* If you want a second ( or more ) floor, youll have to build pillars or walls first.
Youll be able to place floors all around the pillar/wall so remember that when for
example you place pillars, you only need to place one in two.
* If youre playing anything but peaceful mode, you will need something really
important: Foundation Armor. It will protect your raft from shark attacks. So
place them in priority on squares holding something because for now, the shark
can absolutely attack foundations in the middle of your raft and if it holds
something, it will disappear with the square.
* Creative Mode is a perfect way to try out structures before placing them on your
current raft and risking wasting precious materials.
Mother Lode Achievement Guide:
Written by GrushenkosAfterlife
Simple method to obtain the Mother Lode Achievement.
I Killed the Mama Bear and So Can You
* 1 Bow.
* Up to 50 Arrows.
You don't need armor or other items. This is not the hero's way to kill her,
but it works.
* Approach the Mama Bear from any desired angle.
* Take note of your surroundings (e.g. blue rock, birch tree, etc.) and choose a
place from which to fire.
* Hit the Mama Bear with an arrow and run (she will chase only for a few seconds,
then return to her precious berries).
* Return to the same place from which you fired (blue rock, birch tree) and hit
her with another arrow.
* Repeat the process and you will unlock the Mother Lode achievement.
Not sure if the process is cumulative... I fought her three times and was incapacitated
each time. If cumulative, then as many as 50 arrows are needed
No leather armor is needed, just stick and move!
How to Obtain Former Glory Achievement:
Written by pokeninja
Disclaimer: You need to have caravan town to do this achievement.
So for this it says something along the lines of "the four pieces united"
witch isn't that help full I myself have this achievement and this is how to
First you need the metal detector from caravan town it will glow with all bulbs
on it if you are on top of treasure.
Second you will need to dig with a shovel on this spot,remember ii is not guaranted
that it will be a tiki piece
Third after doing this (on islands,small island gives 1 treasure per island and
giant islands give. For a while you will get 4 tiki totem pieces, they need to be
placed on each other in a specific order,you can use my image or you can look on
their forhead and bottom,match the colours (if there is no colour on top / bottom
then it top / bottom piece) and then it will spin if you did it right and you will
get the achievement,also pick up the tower for a secret item.
Upon picking up the totem you will get a tiki mask.
How to Feed Animals:
Written by fwe3434
-=Guide to Feed Pet=-
* You need to put down a grass crop plot, and then water them and wait. I would recommend
to make fences around your enclosure so that the animals will forever be stuck in there
with no hope of escaping, this step is very important.
* After this the grass should be finished.
* After the grass is finished put your animal in the enclosure and watch it eat as
you take its resources.
How to Get Wood (Easy Method):
Written by PandaPandemicTV
Get to Balboa Island (The one with all the scary bears and bees).
* Once you've completed this island, you can always come back.
* Everything respawns. All the trees, all the bears! Even the bees and honey.
* And the trees give you seeds occasionally (If you didn't know, the small birch
and oak trees on that island can be cut down)!
* So you can plant them again and hope they'll keep giving you seeds (We can all
dream. But you know they won't give you enough seeds back.
Might as well keep them there for decorations).
Get to Tangaroa (The giant glass dome one. Yes, with the robots).
* Once you completed this islands, you should have all the doors open to the top.
* When you come back to this island, you'll have easy access to the top.
The doors stay open.
* All those trees that are neatly planted around grow back! Sadly they don't give
you seeds, but plenty of wood (Big projects can finally be finished)!
* As a bonus, you can gather the coins again. So if you missed out on getting the
piano (I know, its expensive, and you needed all those potted plants to place all
over your massive raft), you can get it.
* You can also recollect the bananas and strawberries!
