Contract: Shrieker is a witcher contract quest in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Geralt is tasked with killing a monster that has been terrorizing the inhabitants of Crow's Perch in Velen.
- Contract: Shrieker
- To Whom It May Concern:
- Let it hereby be known that whoever kills the shrieker, the monster that's wove its nest near Crow's Perch and has taken to killing both men and beasts, will be given a sizable reward. Take heed that she's a dreadful dangerous creature and killing it'll take a trained fighter, not just a pack of peasants with pitchforks.

Journal entry Edit
- Not only did the people of Crow's Perch live in constant fear of the baron's mad impulses and the greed of his band of toughs, but they also had to deal with a vicious monster. They had given this beast a lovely, full-of-wholesome-folk-character name: "shrieker." It had tormented them so terribly that they had decided to pay for a witcher to take eradicate it. Geralt, who was far from deaf to the concerns of simple folk (and also was forever in need of more coin), decided to take the contract on this mysterious beast.
- It turned out a cockatrice had left the tracks. As this beast's name implies, it looks something like a rooster crossed with a basilisk and, according to Geralt, tastes a bit like chicken.
- The cockatrice slain, Geralt took a trophy from its corpse and went to collect his well-deserved reward.
