Not too much of a problem, just watch out for alphas. I was playing splitscreen with my brother the other day on Xbox, and one jumped out and slaughtered him (He was very new. I had given him some gear, but not any bolas, and he wasn't good at fighting yet.). I had only brought my raptor. I whistled for my raptor to attack, and he eventually killed it. However, the alpha brought him down to about 37% health, and I was shooting the thing with my crossbiw the whole time (I ran out of bullets earlier in the trip). He was a level 100 at the time, and the alpha was a level 15. They aren't a joke in combat.
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. Upvote so everyone knows about this new ability. PS...alpha raptors ALSO do this.
