I hate these bastards with a burning passion. They have knocked me off my mount so many times in the red woods, get my health down while I’m stunned and then some Carno or terror bird comes over and finishes me off. They will kill you, your family and anything you have ever loved.
I keep confusing these things for archaeopteryx and dimorphs. One will flee in fear and climb onto the trees, one won’t react at all unless you attack them, and one will tackle you off your mount and eat your face.
Many confuse these with the archaeopteryx. The micro raptors have singular head crests, whereas the archaeopteryx only have head feathers. The micro also has a flat cluster of feathers on the end of its tail, archaes have feathers along each side instead of at the end.
Get off of your tame with a bola ready, and once it runs at you, bola it and knock it out. One rare flower will tame nearly any level with no narcotics, but anything else will require some maintenance
Microraptors are very useful tames for pvp. They’re ability to knock player off mounts means that you can have microraptors hidden around your base in case an angry player is going around raiding bases, the microraptors will kick the player of the mount and leave you a chance to kill the player while they are stunned.
You can strap a c4 to a micro raptor, and if you have a couple of these, maybe 10, you can whistle attack onto someone riding a parasaur or bronto, and switch to the detonator, wait until you see the first damage indicator, and press the button. The person gets stunned, their mount dead, and your little turkeys will finish them off. I accidentally did this to my friend on small tribes when he wasn’t in my tribe at the time.
