🆕 Based on user feedback, I've made some updates to how player tips are sorted. Tips are no longer sorted by total upvotes alone. Tips now receive a boost based on how recent they are, giving new tips a better chance to rise. Old tips can still rank highly if they're still receiving sufficient upvotes, but this change will also make it easier to push down outdated tips. Please downvote and report inaccurate or outdated tips.
These are Arks thugs .. they don't care what you are doing whether it be minding your business or if your just looking to pet a dodo. They will come and they will kill you and your dodo.. Run as far as possible swim as far .carry a bola on you so you trap your friend and escape . @chief3alpha xbox
In a recent PC (and very soon to console) update these little jerks can now pounce on you...and they WILL. Every. Damn. Time. They knock you off mounts and on you to the ground while they gnaw on your bones...mocking you. They’ve knocked me off an argy and therozinos several times. They’re much more deadly now. Upvote so everyone knows about this new ability. PS...alpha raptors ALSO do this.
Just tamed a level 122 on Dead Island no kibble and only a few narcs on me. Had to fight off a scorpion and a sabertooth to keep from it waking up. As the tame was close to finishing I was attacked from behind by two scorpions and they knock me out. As I'm getting attacked by them and I am sure that I am a goner, the raptor tames, gets the them off of me, and kills both of the scorpions. I wait in horror as my consciousness returns, hoping that I am not going to die to a patrol. I didn't, and I turn around and see a Rex almost close enough to aggro me. I put my raptor on follow ran to my raft, and escaped the island as the Rex was chasing me. I named him Saving Grace on the way back, but as I am passing the swamp, a sarco attacks my raft. It knocks my beloved raptor off, and it was swarmed by the sarco and a group of megapiranha. I try to call it to follow, and it dies almost instantly. I am utterly devastated and heartbroken...... :'((
The Raptor is a well-rounded and easy-to-tame dinosaur. Its high speed and ability to defend itself make it very useful for travel, especially for newer survivors. While the raptor has a lower torpor tolerance, its speed can often make it difficult to target.
