When set to "Hunt & Retrieve" it will bring you dodos or fish and the dodos will give raw prime or a few of it. And fish will give raw prime fish meat. You'll know cause the corpse will glow yellow as the icthyornis is bringing it to you!
I had the pleasure of befriending one of these animals. Despite popular opinion, I find ichthyornis birds to be quite charming and graceful. So much that I found myself taming one. After he woke up, I saw a fire in Greg. From then on, we would be best friends. He’d come with me everywhere. From simple resource gathering to Bronto taming, Greg would be there supporting me from my shoulder. When I was too tired to go fishing or hunting, Greg was there to do it for me. He even makes the effort to make sure I get the best meat out of it. He is a quick learner, he went from from level 20 to level 40 in a day. Anywhere I go, he comes. Anything I need, he makes it his top priority. To this day, Greg continues to be my best friend and sometimes we just hang out on the beach or go fishing even when the resources aren’t needed. I thank Greg for his time with me and his endless favors that he has completed for me. Thank you, Greg.
Step 2: go find someone who is decked out and has good stuff.
Step 3: put them on hunt and retrieve and whistle to attack him.
Step 4: hide in a bush so op man don’t see u and run away once birds done their crime.
Step 5: flex on your friends with your “hard earned” stuff.
Just tamed one of these myself, after reading the story of Greg I decided there was only one name suitable for this creature. I love My Greg so much, he is amazing. Shortly after I tamed him I was out gathering with him perched on my shoulder when I was attacked by a group of compys, Greg instantly Launched himself off my shoulder and flew into the air with on in his Jaws while my raptor killed the other 2. I've never enjoyed watching something that has attacked me die so much.... Until a couple minutes later. A Dilo ran up and before it could even blind me Greg swooped in and grabbed him up in his Jaws flew into the air and tore him to shreds. 10/10 would tame a whole battalion of Greg's.
Also they are great for catching fish and taming otters.
This is the ultimate combo. Pego, troodons and seagulls
If you want to loot a guy without leaving a trace , here is how you do it.
1: pego problems, send a squadron of pegos to pick pocket your target just to piss them off.
2: seagull stealing, next send your seagull fleet to steal their items while they are chasing the pegos. If you are lucky, the seagulls will take the item they are using or the ammunition for the item
3: troodon terror, lastly, so they don’t know what happened, send your troodons to put them to sleep with their venom attack, they won’t know what hit them and you will walk away with all of their loot, if you are feeling like they have more stuff on them, grab narcotics and put them to sleep even more, then search his body. And boom free loot for the minimal price of lost tames. Hope this helps you pick pocket the alpha tribe!
