These guys make great chibi/skin storages. They eat chitin, you won’t really need to worry about them starving if you fill their inventory with it. Using this as a parachute is okay however you can’t use any hand items,(weapons, spyglass, etc….) while holding the Archaeopteryx. They fall to slowly. You can cancel the glide while falling and can’t re-enter the glide later, that I’m aware of. They’re better to be cryopoded and used in caves as gliders if you want to safely jump over gaps.
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.
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
