Tier 1 (Simple) Bait

The first tier of bait is already unlocked in the game. So all you need to do is to find or make a Trash Cube. It can be found in the debris floating in the ocean or made with the Recycler. Once you have purchased the Bait you can use it to fish with any kind of fishing rod. 

Tier 2 (Advanced) Bait 

After you finally obtain the tier 1 bait and catch fish, you can sell it to the vendors. This helps to unlock the second tier of Bait. When you unlock the second tier of bait the efficiency of fishing goes up.

The best thing about it is that the price of the bait does not change even after you unlock higher Tiers of Bait.

Tier 3 (Expert) Bait 

To unlock the last Tier of bait in the game of Raft, you just need to follow the same steps you take to unlock the 2nd tier. After selling a bunch of Fish to the vendors, you can unlock Tier 3 Bait. This will help you find the best fish throughout the game when you are fishing.

Final Thoughts

Survival is one of the biggest adventures of open-world RPGs. Most RPGs require your player to eat food to raise their hit points or HP. You may also need to eat food in this genre of games to improve your overall stats.

Raft is no different as it has all the survival elements of the RPG genre. And having bait at hand is one of the best ways to get the abundant food in the game. Once you raise the tier of your bait, fishing not only becomes easier but also enjoyable. So Upgrade the tier of your bait whenever you can.

Raft is a multiplayer RPG that brings something unique to the table. While this game has an open-world survival setting, you are found drifting in the sea on a raft. Your player is left to survive in a vast ocean by gathering Trash and using it to upgrade your raft.
