When a raptor pins you. You can do nothing and no weapon works.
EXCEPT..... Metal/stone Hatchet. Even though it doesn't show any hitting animation. You will see that while pinned downed You can cause damage to it through a hatchet.(MOBILE TRIED). Up If Anyone Does Experiment. Good luck. Try it.
This is just about the game being an a**hole that includes raptor but not a tip about raptor. Okay so there that “daily pursuit” thing where you get rewards or whatever and on mobile you get ancient amber and the amount of amber you receive increase the longer you do it in a row right? Okay so today it was a pursuit of killing an alpha raptor which isn’t a big deal I knew some of their location in case I needed for this exact reason. I go over there with my spino to where I last seen a alpha raptor, didn’t find it there. I went to another location where I’ve seen an alpha raptor there as well and surprise surprise it wasn’t there either. So I go back home get on my griffin start flying around in case I see one. I went to the redwoods the island near the red obelisk(The Island Map) and the snow area and the mountains. As I didn’t find an alpha raptors I decided to check on a Giga that I’ve been deciding to tame or not but as I go to that giga location it has despawn as well (not surprised)the alphas raptors COMPLETELY disappeared when I needed them and I didn’t find one at all causing me to lose my daily pursuit 8th days. Now it isn’t hard to come back from that but it’s just the fact that the fu*ken game did that 💩 on propose is what got me mad. Anyways have a nice day and I hope this crap doesn’t happen to you🙃
