Ok so I was getting some wood and then out of nowhere at the top of my screen it says ‘you have entered a dangerous area’ and I’m like “wha-?” I didn’t get to finish because around a rock I saw it. It was an ALPHA RAPTOR. I started to run away from it,but it pounced on me and I died. I respond hoping he didn’t kill any of my Dino’s. I get back and I see all my Dino’s (9) fighting the alpaca raptor. In the end only 2 of my Dino’s died. The main help was my Pteranodon he was the one that actually killed the raptor while the others watched. Sorry this was kind of a long story.the MAIN thing I’m trying to say is IF YOU ARE A LOW LEVEL STAY AWAY FROM RAPTORS. And please give a prayer to Forest and Ivy :( they fought the best they could.
Once I tamed one of these and named it itchy. Itchy got his name from when I don’t mount him he always twitches around like his whole body got infested by fleas. Once I played with my friend and we were traveling to dodo island when a random sarco came out of nowhere and started biting my friend. I ordered my trike (Tina) to get rid of that thing. But Tina fell into the water and attracted megalodons. We didn’t have any cargo on that raft so we abandoned it immediately and I jumped onto Itchy and he was insane fast and swam away before the megolodons could react. Sadly for my friend and Tina that they died and my friend lost all his gear because he did not have one of these. Itchy was a real life saver for me. A good starter mount for starters.
Let it draw you in.(If you escape without doing anything try getting closer to it)
Put on Ghillie.(And bug repellant to not get annoyed by swarms)
Give it some Parasaur to eat.(Increases effectivity)
Remove ghillie.(Again bug repellant)
Let yourself get webbed with Blood bags in your inventory.
Good Luck!(you also might need parachutes/grappling hook)
Once I saw a high level spino wandering around and killing everything in sight and when I shot my bow it ran away and I was like what the hell? Killing them isn’t hard just tame a few Dilophosaurs and let them spit poison at the Spino before killing it with your pistols. If you don’t have pistols, get more and higher leveled Dilo and stand back and shoot it with a bow to assist.
You can use this guy as a distraction whilst hunting raptors. Once I saw Raptors terrorizing near my base so I took my Carbo with me (Karen) and she attacked the pack of raptors while I caught the alpha raptor with a bola and killed it with my longneck and pistol. Karen was still alive by the time I went to help her out and all of them were focused on killing Karen so I threw a bola at all of them and killed them. Also if you want to invade a base with turrets take this dude and use their eggs to make kibbles to tame Brontosauruses so you can start you first tour de la ark
