What makes a raptor deadly is it’s pounce attack, which renders the target similar to torpor unconcious for a few seconds( you will not gain torpor, but you will be helpless). During this timeframe a raptor can use its biting attacks while in the pounce stage to inflict serious damage to you and your armor. However, if you ride a medium/large mount, you can negate the pounce, making the raptor a nuisance rather than a killing machine.
These are Arks thugs .. they don't care what you are doing whether it be minding your business or if your just looking to pet a dodo. They will come and they will kill you and your dodo.. Run as far as possible swim as far .carry a bola on you so you trap your friend and escape . @chief3alpha xbox
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.
If you're being chased my raptors (or anything raptor sized really) run into deep water and go down below them, they should swim away in a couple seconds and you should be able to swim away free. Good luck to all the beginners!! 😁
