Be ware!, they are the best kicker of all ARK. Imagine they hit your head with their super tiny leg, and surprisingly, with its power, they can knock u off from your mount and stunt both of you easily. Thats the power of the chiken leg
Oh yeah, dont forget with their massive scream. If you translate it, they say " u expecting an archeo, but its me MICRO!!! ORA!ORA!ORA!ORA!"
Was riding my pteranodon when these dudes just knocked me off.Where did I got knocked out of my tame? Near a purlovia mound and then I got pounced by the purlovia. Wow I think ark just hates me. I died and my pteranodon barely made it out alive... I hate the microraptor.
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.
