How to find and kill a Ravager in Minecraft

Ravager is one of the most powerful, non-mattress mobs you will encounter in Minecraft. It’s hard to kill with a health of 100 points. His speed matches a player which means there can be no better than being. It can also destroy a wide range of blocks making most of them a bad block to hide or shelter behind. By killing a predator, though difficult, you gain a lot of experience and, if you are lucky, a saddle.

Ravager in Minecraft

A large predator, bison / rhino / triceratops is a mob. It is not easy to find as it only rains through the third wave of city attack. To find prey, a player must;

  • Find Captain Illager and destroy them or if tame wolf kills them.
  • Enter town after killing Captain Illager.
  • Wait for a raid to begin
  • Prey lasts until the third wave comes out when up to 5 predators spawn.

Find Captain Illager

Captain Illager spawnes in Illager mob. You will find these in the following places;

  • Illager Patrol that has spawned. They tend to spawn after 5 days in the aftermath but are rare
  • Pillager outposts
  • Forest premises

Of the above three, Pillager Outpost is the easiest to find. It is a rare structure but a Forest mansion is rarer than an outdoor space. Captain Illager is identified by the flag they carry. When you, or a tame wolf, are killed, you get the ‘Bad Omen’ effect.

Once you have the Bad Omen effect, you can enter a small town and it will start to attack.

Kill Ravager

After you start an attack, you have to fight through it and wait for the third wave of mobs to spawn. It is in this wave that the Ravager (s) appear.

To kill a prey, you can use all sorts of techniques but there are two common methods to use;

  1. Dig down until you have a hole in the ground. The predator will not be able to reach you but you can jump up and hit it with a sword, or any other weapon.
  2. Create an elevated platform that you can climb up. You can also climb a tree as it will not be able to destroy a predator. Once he’s close, you can use range weapons like a bow or rainbow or crashes to kill him.

Killing strategy

Predators only spawn in an attack that means you can plan for it. Once you find the Illager site, look for your nearest town. Establish the structures you need to be successful in the attack. Enter the outpost only after everything is set up and captain Illager is killed. Getting to know the location of your nearest town will make sure you reach it, and the attack will begin before the Bad Omen defeat wears off (lasts 1 hour and 40 minutes so there is no rush ).


A predator spouts through the third wave of an attack but an attack may have several waves. If you keep killing other Illager captains that you encounter in an attack, you will extend the attack. If your goal is to kill a predator, read up on attack mechanics so you can use it to your advantage.
