These little guys normally see you before you spot them. But go into an area with a good horse and when they start to circle you to try and knock you....start kicking! I actually Ko'd one at random and tamed her up. Actually a beautiful baby I named Fifi, a suitable name for an ankle-biter! XD
I tamed one on the Halloween event,I know a lot of people hate these but they are really fun when you get to know them.Anyway I didn’t name my microraptor but I loved him dearly.Sadly he died Cuz I didn’t feed him😔RIP microraptor I will miss you
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
I hear on standard servers it only takes 1 rare flower to tame a 150. I can confirm it does at 2.5 (5x old rates) rates at least. Also they look almost identical to Archas almost, especially at a distance or while mounted.
If you are attempting to tame one or one is running up on you(pending no preditors are around) dismount as they fly around you, they will not stun and you can throw a quick bola. They are pretty weak downed a 174 with 2 darts from a 161% rifle using this technique. Great in pvp to terrorize people, I personally use them for kibble and they are just neat shoulder mounts.
