These things are beasts, and relatively easy to tame too. Just a small pack of around 2-4 can take on a medium-high level carno, have decent hp, make for a fast mount, have a pounce attack that works on most things smaller than it, and also a pack buff. Also will slow spoil timers for meat in their inventory, and all this is before considering imprinting or stat mutations.
Don’t listen to that goofy ahh lvl 20 uncle who said that there isn’t pack buff on mobile, yes there is it’s just not on raptors or compys the ones I know that have pack buff on mobile it’s allosaurus and dire wolves
Raptors are essentially better Dilos. Whe lacking the poisonous blinding spit of a Dilo, they have a much better DPS due to their speed. In groups of three or more they benefit from a pack boost, and in groups of at least four I notice they tend to take on bigger threats on the Ark (notably Sarcos and Kapros). Plus their pounce ability is not to be overlooked.
In short, tame Dilos for the early game, but Raptors as you move into mid game.
