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.
Though commonly mistaken for Archeopteryx, the difference between the two theropods is the microraptors blinding speed, and ability to leap up into the air and orbit the player until stunning them and dismounting them from any creature they're on. Keep an eye on the bushes and trees, they can be anywhere in the redwoods forest.
They seem to only be aggressive when you are on your mount. Dismount before approaching or else you will find your self thrown off and Stunned. Walking forward and backwards quickly allows you to "hula hoop" an attacking Micro, giving you time to dismount and avoid the stun.
This guys spawns in redwood and sometimes at the near swamp river in south!
If you ever see thing don't just go and attack them thinking they are we they will dismount you and there are chances of rex, raptor, carnos, allos, baryoynx spawning near them so just stay away form them unless you want to be killed or tame them
My tribe mate got stunned by one these while he was peacefully getting ripped to shreds by 1 thyacoleo, a swarm of bugs and a pack of terror birds. Guess which one caused his death? The microraptor because it stung him and he couldn't fight back.
