All Old Bird attacks

The new Old Bird entity in Lethal Company is extremely deadly. It has a passive stance where it slowly stomps around one foot at a time, and an aggressive stance upon locating the player or any other entity in which it will quickly start running towards its target to attack it. It can also quickly fly into the air to reach its target.

Rocket Barrage

The primary Old Bird attack is to fire a barrage of rockets. The rockets fire from the Old Bird’s left arm and will quickly fly toward the original target destination. On contact with the destination, the rocket explodes dealing 30 area of effect damage to the area.

This Rocket Barrage attack is incredibly repetitive, and the Old Bird will often fire several rockets in quick succession at its enemy.

The best way to try and mitigate this attack is to use the Jetpack and fly around and put objects between you and the Old Bird to disrupt its attacks.

You can use the rockets to your advantage, however, as the AoE will also damage and kill other entities.

Flamethrower

Once you get close enough to the Old Bird it will light up a flamethrower attack from its left arm to douse the area in flames. The flames will deal a small but consistent amount of fire AoE damage to everything in the area that it catches on fire.

The Old Bird can also grab players and directly burn them to death with the flamethrower attack, much like the Forest Keeper entity’s grab attack.

Stomp and Smash

Players who get too close to the Old Bird will get stomped by the robot’s large bipedal robot chicken feet.

How to Avoid the Old Bird

The best way to avoid the Old Bird is using the Jetpack. If you’re on the ground, the only way to protect yourself from taking massive damage from the Old Bird when it starts firing rockets at you is to quickly get inside or hide behind some sort of object that will block the area of effect damage.

Using the Jetpack you can quickly fly around the Old Bird until you can get in close enough to take it out. Keep in mind that the rockets will fly to their target destination as soon as they are fired. So wherever you are when the Old Bird first fires a rocket, that is where that rocket will fly to. Being able to quickly maneuver around the map is key to dealing with the Old Bird.

On the Artifice Moon map, there are a ton of warehouses that you can use to counter the Old Bird. Inside the warehouses are switches that open and close the massive warehouse doors. Gain the aggro of the Old Bird then head inside the warehouse and quickly close the door, trapping it inside.

Where to find the Old Bird

The Old Bird enemy spawns specifically outside, though it can walk inside large structures like warehouses as well. However, it can’t be found inside map interiors like the Mansion. It mainly spawns in the new version 50 update moons, but it has a low spawn chance on other maps as well.

Here is where the Old Bird can be found:

  • 8-Embrion (Common)
  • 8-Artifice (Common)
  • 8-Titan (Uncommon)
  • 7-Dine (Uncommon)
  • 21-Offense (Rare)
  • 41-Experimentation (Rare)
  • 20-Adamance (Rare)
