While a lot of people don't like these because they steal your stuff while wild, they are actually very nice when tamed.
Just hover your cursor over a fish or small creature (like Dodo) and throw off your shoulder. Your Itchy will kill the creature and bring it back to you. They will also inflict a buff on the dead creature which will cause it to give Prime Fish Meat or Prime Meat when harvested, no matter what they originally gave!
Not to mention how cute they look when bringing prey back.
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!
