First Appearance

Update 0.15.0

Strays are Hostile Mobs that were added to Minecraft Pocket Edition in Update 0.15.0.


Strays are variants of Skeletons that spawn have an 80% chance to replace Skeletons exclusively in Snowy Biomes.


Strays are a stronger variation of the Skeleton. 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 it hits.


It is best to use a Bow when attacking a Stray. Using melee 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.


  • 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. They also can 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 skins, mainly "stray", and "stray_overlay".
  • Strays are the fourth Mob in MCPE that are able to apply Status Effects on the Player, the first being Cave Spiders, second being Wither Skeletons, the third being Witches, the fifth being the Husks, the sixth being the Wither, and the seventh being the Elder Guardian and the eight being the Shulker.
  • When given Invisibility, its "clothing" will still appear.
  • As of Update 1.0, Strays have the same texture that PC uses.
  • As of Update 1.0.4, Strays will try to avoid Wolves.
