How to kill a harpy
There are plenty of deadly enemies to face in Survival: Fountain of Youth, but some of them are just annoying. The harpy is one such creature, and is also a valuable source of food and crafting materials. Read on to find out how to kill these pesky birds!
What is a harpy in Survival: Fountain of Youth?
A Harpy is a predatory bird that lives on the Isle of Hope in Survival: Fountain of Youth. They usually fly high in the sky and won’t bother you if you keep your distance.
However, approaching a bird’s nest at any time will cause any nearby harpy to notice and become aggressive towards you. At that point, she will start to attack aggressively, flying straight at you and attacking you with her claws.
Where to find a harpy in Survival: Fountain of Youth
You can find a harpy in Survival: Fountain of Youth approaching any bird nest. Bird nests can be seen on the game map.
In addition to bird nests, you can find harpies flying through the sky, especially at higher altitudes. Just look up to the sky and see if you can spot any Harpies.
How to kill a harpy in Survival: Fountain of Youth
There are two ways to kill a Harpy in Survival: Fountain of Youth:
- Throw a melee weapon or fire a ranged weapon.
- Use a block attack with a melee weapon right before it hits you as it lunges.
Shooting a bow, crossbow, or pistol while the Harpy is airborne, whether it’s flying normally or moving in close to attack, risks not being able to retrieve your ammo. I highly recommend against throwing a melee weapon for the same reason – you might have a hard time getting it back.
A much better solution is to use a blocking attack. Hold a melee weapon in your hand and hold the left button to charge up the attack. When the Harpy gets close, release left click just before it hits you. If you time it right, you will launch the Block Attack, killing the Harpy and preventing any damage. If you mess around, you may take some damage, but you still have a good chance of killing the Harpy.
Killing a harpy will net you a harpy trophy decoration, a pair of feathers (used in crafting), and a pair of eggs (used in crafting and cooking).
