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.
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!"
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.
This little demon IS THE MOST IRRITATING THING TO HAVE EVER EXISTED. They are everywhere in the redwoods, they knock you off your ride then you can't move, after that all your dinos go insane and get completely unorganized and there goes YOUR ENTIRE EXPIDITION BURNING AND FALLIGN APART BECAUSE OF THESE GARBAGE DEMONS.
Lost Island.. this map doesn't care where your supposed to spawn. Hatered is too pure a word for these feathered mini beasts who give birds a bad rep.
Anyways encounter, so first off they dont seem to spawn till about the 20th ark day if your on console it seems like the more complicated dinis take longer to spawn. Their spawn location is the redwoods and plains/savana as well as mountain areas, very rarely the dense forests where the boundaries are iffy at best. They do a screech and a mario jump into the air and glide at you at pteradon speed so please if you manage to dodge one keep flying and don't check if its still after you because it is. They can glide for at leastmost of your ptera's stam bar so your gonna need to use the terrain to your advantage. If you cant 1hit KO this thing kite it to your other tames as most dinos will ignore them. You either notice them while your high up or they notice you close to the ground either way if they miss you better be gone before they hit the ground.
Escape; I landed with my argy after fighting with a glitched alpha raptor and noticed from the very corner of veiw a lil 💪muscle bird charging me from out of render distance, since i was laned higher and further away it didn't jump ip yet n i was able to get away. Came back with my ptera attacked it and fled, got it down to ground level and slaughtered it with a pack of dilos and a parasaur since they can detect enemies.
Tip: If you notice passive dino's running/flying away from something and you cant see any carnivores just run. Sorry it was so long i wish ya the best ~Witch Subject#1
After reading these tips, im actually pretty lucky :D ive never had much problems with these guys, usually im riding my argi near the ground, looking for something to tame when these knock me off my mount. I dont actually get mad at them, i just whistle for my argi to be on neutral and my argi kills them. They never stun my argi. I actually look for them sometimes because theyre super cute and i want one (i dont have one yet). But then, the "Omg its so cute thing" also goes with terror birds and carnos for me, which my sister despises and she'll never forgive me for loving the "ugly" things.
