Behavior[]

Scav raiders are advanced Scavs that are considerably stronger and more tactical than everyday Scavs. They fight in groups, often patrolling the Lab, and Reserve in small squads of three/four members. Raiders employ multiple different weapons and tactics, not afraid to flank, rush, and pin down intruding PMCs. Extreme discretion is required when facing Raiders, as unprepared players will often be shot down almost instantly. Raiders often say voice lines while patrolling or fighting and are easily distinguished from Scavs when speaking English. Scav Raiders start out neutral to other Scavs (including player Scavs), but will get irritated and shout warnings when they get too close. If the warning is ignored, they will open fire. If some other Scav has alerted a raider, it becomes hostile to all other non-raider Scavs; it is safer to always assume that they are hostile.

Boss followers have a similar logic, with the exception that the boss gets angry without a warning.

Strategy[]

Because Raiders are able to have Class 5 and 6 Body Armor and Tactical Rigs it is best to bring high penetration ammo, if you can't bring high penetration ammo then it is better to aim for the head, or more specifically the face, as the Eyes and Jaws hitboxes will be protected by at most Class 3 face shields however other head hitboxes won't have any armor class higher than 4. Also peeking the same angle twice is highly discouraged as Raiders will watch an angle if you peek it once so it is best to regularly change your position. It is also best to engage Raiders in close range or in enclosed spaces as there is more cover and it is much easier to land headshots in close range, however you always need to have a place to retreat to as Raiders are able to use grenades so being inside of a room with no way out except towards the Raiders is a death sentence. It is also useful to use grenades for your own advantage, grenades are very useful at displacing the Raiders and forcing them to leave any cover they may have which will put them out in the open where they can be dispatched.
