They are no problem fighting. However, they can knock you off cliffs. I saw a compy go shooting down a cliff, right where I was half a second ago. Don’t even try to tame. Carry a dimorphodon or a vulture on your shoulder as compy repellent.
Got SOOO annoying over by the area on the island where the west coast and the southern jungle meet. They travel in packs most of the time. The worst place to encounter at is the rocky areas. If your character is getting damaged and you don't know what it is, look down and around your legs, there possibly will be a pack of four or less. They run off when they are damaged to where they are at 30 health or less, then they come back, so you have to pay attention to where they run off to. You don't want to encounter a group of them if you're already at low health, trust me.
Very dangerous, very annoying. Also kinda cute. This is the compy, or compsognathus. It is a pack dino, which means it gets a pack bonus if there are other compies around. They are very small, which means if you attack one, others could quickly stream out of the small berry plants. However, they are relatively slow and quite low on health, so if many threaten you, don't bother fighting them. 1. Because it's a bad idea for new/low lvl players. 2. Because they barely give any hide or meat
Aww cute litte thing at first but it bites and more and more come and they kill u unless you have any metal wepon or worse or better y'know imagine your player in jurassic park 3 yeah they will hang up say by to any passave mounts
A single Compy is never an issue. Due to there curious nature of humans they'll walk right up to you and observe you without hostility. But after they see you they will send out a call to nearby Campus beckoning them. Once another Compy is close enough to get a pack bonus they loose there neutral mentality and the pack mind takes over and they become hostile to beware of multiple Compys.
