Drake Battle Strategy

Keep Moving

A Drake's attack pattern is very scripted, they will fire a few shots at you and move away for a bit. Constantly moving allows you to easily evade their shots while having the time to aim and shoot them down.

Use a Bow and Arrow

Since Drakes are always flying, it is very hard to kill them with a melee weapon. It is recommended to use a Bow and Arrow to shoot them down while they are still to kill them with ease.
