Disambig-icon This article is about the animal. For the gang, see Rats. For the quest in The Witcher, see The Rat.

Rats are medium-sized, long-tailed rodents living in inhabited areas such as Novigrad and Vizima. Before the domestication of cats, rats had been a great problem to human societies, most often solved by hiring a rat-catcher playing on a musical instrument.[1]

Large, savage rats living in the wilderness are called skrekks. Mutated forms of the species are pseudorats,[2] and the cursed people who are able to take the form of half-human, half-rat are wererats.[3][4]

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

When Geralt run into Triss Merigold in Novigrad she has a contract to get rid of rats in warehouse of some merchant. Then with Keira Metz he has to destroy the rat holes with either bombs or Igni spell to receive 100Tw3 icon xp for each destroyed nest.

Depending on whether you set option "enemy upscaling" off or on, they can be the weakest or the strongest enemies in the game.

Associated quests

Bugs

  • Rats will sometimes grunt with a female voice when bumped into by the player. This can be noticed during the quest A Towerful of Mice.

Notes

  • Keira Metz is terrified of rats, despite being able to easily do away with them.
  • Like all other enemies in the game, rats can be affected by enemy upscaling. This normally isn't a problem until you have to face several rats all at once, creating an almost impossible fight. To fix this, simply turn off enemy upscaling.
