Don't put points into its movement speed if you want to glide faster. It glides as fast you run, so putting points into your movement speed will increase how fast it will glide. Hope this saves you from wasting levels like me : )
Amazing for riding Ptera. Right before you run out of stamina on ptera, simply jump off while holding one of these and the ptera will regain its stamina in the air. Once your pteras stamina is full you can hop back on. Never need to land in dangerous areas again.
Some youtubers say that they are useless. WRONG. They are better than wasting time crafting a parachute and they can attack and they are small so very hard to target. I saw one of these drill through a rex and the thing didn’t even take damage once and the rex died.
Using just an archaeopteryx if you jump from a very high place you can travel the entire map with little to worry about. They are also good for when that one god damn microraptor gets you and your argy.
Oh archaeopteryx, you little chicken on steroids. This little guys is just a whole load of fun. They can carry you over vast distances, but also double as a, hey you seem to be falling, lemme help you out. However, getting down can be a bit of a problem. Otherwise... WOOOOOOHOOOOOOO OH YEAH IM RIDING THE SKY USING THE POWER OF A LITTLE CHICKEN THING
