The easiest way to tame those boring early game guys... Is making a 3x3 platform or cube and put the raptor in the middle, with a hole, they will fall down, and after use anytingh you can craft tranq ecc. Safe and best tricj
Raptors are one of the best early/midgame tames, because of their availability, easy taming, and balanced stats. Also their saddles are relatively easy to craft. To tame one just bola it and then club it on the head, just remember that they can still attack, and watch out for others
No-one's shared a tip about raptor breeding so I thought I'd help you folk out!
Raptors hatchlings are really easy to take care of. They hatch with about 3 standing torches, although the number varies depending on the ambient temperature of your region and time of day. They'll need about a stack of raw meat to make it through the entire maturation process and can be fed from a trough once they reach the 'juvenile' stage (10% maturity), however you WILL need to give them food beforehand as they'll starve before they reach 10%. Otherwise you can really just leave them be. Obviously they can't be ridden and I strongly don't recommend fighting with raptors that haven't matured yet as they have less health than a fully grown raptor (which already has low hp).
If you are a beginner, on easy mode, this thing is COMPLETELY AWESOME. It takes about 50 cooked meat for a lvl 30 but taming is EXTREMELY FAST. Just bola its face! Then slingshot its face! Then feed its FACE. And BAAAAAM RAPTOR
