Everyone needs to know and it is dev confirmed that Oviraptors DO NOT buff chances of mutations or twins or triplets. This is a long going myth that needs to be shut down. Any twins or triplets you are getting is purely coincidence. This was said by one of the devs on twitter!
These guys can steal eggs without aggroing surrounding dinos! You can get easy wyvern and rock drake eggs! Put it in a cryo pod, sneak into a nest, pop it out of the pod and have it set to follow close, run to the other side of the nest and when it gets to the nest it will take the egg. Once it has the egg you can take the egg from it and there won't be any aggro. Just make sure you don't switch the egg out of your inventory because you'll get the aggro then. Rinse and repeat for super easy wyvern and rock drake eggs!
Stats have no impact on the egg buff, so get a low level one to safe time and eggs. The egg buff will only occure when the Oviraptor is set to wander, just fill it's inventory with junk to make it stationary. The buff does additionally not stack, so getting more than one only makes sense if you need to cover a bigger area.
The Oviraptor will eat meat once tamed and does not increase the chances for mutations or multiple hatchlings.
These will NOT collect eggs laid by tamed dinos. It increases the rate at which they are laid but are still required to be manually picked up. I was under the impression they collected tamed Dino eggs if set to wander in a Dino pen. THEY DO NOT
For those who don’t know, this thing is a secret prime meat harvesting GOD! While I’ve been breeding argy for stats and mutations, I tend to get a lot of bad one, so I just kill them. This little guy (who’s making everything lay some more eggs) would run up to the dead body, and attack them. Nothing ever happened, he kept attacking till the body would eventually disappear. One day, the same thing was happening, and I got sick of it, so I grabbed the bird to move it. This thing harvested it. I was shocked. I checked it’s inventory, and it was LOADED! Cooked all of it as fast as I could.
Is this worth to tame?yes it is here i present to you oviraptor dont understimate its small size it can boost your dino egg production just let it to wonder put it on a box so it wont run away then get your dino and place it near the overaptor then in few weeks you already have lots of eggs
Don't like getting titanoba eggs your self drop this little dude in the swamp and follow it with a argy or quetzal and when it manages to get a egg swoop it up and you got your self a titanoba egg with out any harm done to you
Seems very useless when your a noob but this is a really good Dino to tame. Many buffs for it higher chances of getting dodo feathers, eggs, mutations in fertile eggs, and there’s much more tame this Dino and keep her/him safe from RAPTORS. Honestly tame it
Note that oviraptors do NOT collect the eggs of your (tribe's) tames. Oviraptors are useful because they will collect wild eggs and will allow you to pick them up without aggro-ing any nearby dinos.
To use them, set them to passive and following you/your flyer, drop them near the egg, fly closer to it, then pick your oviraptor up after it snatches the egg. Fly to a safe place (if you're in dangerous territory) to collect the egg!
