Literally just started. Running round in me undies. Trying to build a base. Admim dude comes along and straight yeeted a raptor coming for me. He then proceeded to slaughtet the pack that was on my vunerable ass. Thank you Dear Leader
If your raptor is level 200+ then if you are careful you can easily kill level 50 Rex, you just have to lead it to a paracer or a diplo the Rex will attack the diplo and you can take it out from behind. people can get easy levels
Just tamed a level 122 on Dead Island no kibble and only a few narcs on me. Had to fight off a scorpion and a sabertooth to keep from it waking up. As the tame was close to finishing I was attacked from behind by two scorpions and they knock me out. As I'm getting attacked by them and I am sure that I am a goner, the raptor tames, gets the them off of me, and kills both of the scorpions. I wait in horror as my consciousness returns, hoping that I am not going to die to a patrol. I didn't, and I turn around and see a Rex almost close enough to aggro me. I put my raptor on follow ran to my raft, and escaped the island as the Rex was chasing me. I named him Saving Grace on the way back, but as I am passing the swamp, a sarco attacks my raft. It knocks my beloved raptor off, and it was swarmed by the sarco and a group of megapiranha. I try to call it to follow, and it dies almost instantly. I am utterly devastated and heartbroken...... :'((
Easy and useful for the entire game, bola and crossbow to the face and they're yours (a club can also do the trick tho) just try to find one that's alone
You can also just climb to a rock to tranq it but it's a bit harder
In a recent PC (and very soon to console) update these little jerks can now pounce on you...and they WILL. Every. Damn. Time. They knock you off mounts and on you to the ground while they gnaw on your bones...mocking you. They’ve knocked me off an argy and therozinos several times. They’re much more deadly now. PS...alpha raptors ALSO do this.
This is so cheap and worth it(trust me).
Step 1:find a pack
Step2:try to aggro one out of the pack.
Step4: slingshot it.
Step5: give him some raw meat(prime meat if high level.
There you go.
Once you get flak or chitin, taming these guys is much easier. Just get close enough to agro them, then bola and use tranq arrows. Kill a dodo or para if you are high enough level, and voila! You've got a raptor. Make sure to either tame more or get an opposite gender. Once you have a new raptor of opposite gender, enable mating and let them do the smoochy smoochies and now you have a raptor pack.
