ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
If you are fighting those, dont kill the alpha. It will be easier to kill lower levels, and when the alpha is alone, it will run (and probably despawn) - you will save a LOT of ammo/arrows
More Hyaenodon Encountering Tips
Fact: Hyaenodons in real life were actually not even related to hyenas , their closest living relatives are pangolins(which also are not related in the slightest to raccoons, anteaters, aardvarks, armadillos or hedgehogs). And real hyenas despite appearances are actually not related to dogs or wolves, in fact their closest relatives are meerkats and mongooses and meerkats and mongooses' closest other relatives are cats and civets(also known as bearcats)
Hyenadons in a pack of 2 or less they will run away
3 hyenadons will attack if you’re wounded
A pack of 6 or more will attack no matter what and kill your level 200 raptor with 75% imprinting (found that out the hard way 😢)
When tamed they are killing machines in a pack and with a pet bonus
Man encountering a wild pack of these bad boys with no strap your screwed😂. Good luck out there stay strapped boys.
These guys are simillar to hyenas (well that's what they basically are lol) and these only attack you if they are in a pack of atleast 3, if there are two or one of these, they will run away from you.
These absolute wankers are everywhere in the mountains and if you don’t have something larger than a parasaur it’ll target you and kill you
Fortunately if you are smart like me, you head to the nearest jutting rock and run around it, they have an insane leap so they’ll most likely overshoot and get punted down the mountains
Up this if you find it helpful
They can jump through stone windows. If you have any Windies in your taming pen, close them before you grab these guys.
These are not dogs. They are big furry pangolins.
You can find them in the city on extinction
1. Grab the strongest one in the pack with a flyer.
2. Bring it to an area clear of anything.
3. Pet it multiple times.
Hyaenodons are opprotunists, meaning if they have an opprotunity to get a quick, free meal, they'll take it. Corpses? Heck yeah. Low HP? Yup.
