If you encounter an Alpha Raptor, lead it into deep water and make sure it doesn’t go to the shore, get on a rock (if there is one) and you can bow it if you are on the rock or try killing it with a sword or something else
When i was a newbie i got my first raptor and decided to go to swamp since i wanna explore the map, I'm newbie that time, i didn't know that there's so many titanoboa and sarco in that swamp we were just walking in the water when there's a sudden attack from a titano, we run fast and thought that we lost them but then a sarco came in front of my face i try to run but my raptor got bitten by titanoboa many time and fell unconscious i ran as fast as i could leaving him behind, i try to look back but i saw that there's so many following me, i decided to fight back since my raptor died without having a chance to fight, i used my metal spear then stab those fkin sarco and titanoboa in the head and their face I've made it back in my base safe
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.
