When facing the ‘thugs of ark’ they will run towards the player and jump on them, pinning them down, they then proceed to RIP YOU TO SHREDS.
However for a low level player their is a trick that can be used against these vermin, they attack any neutral or passive animial, so if a player were to run by another animial, the raptor will attack them and if it attacks neutral animals like Trikes or Stegou’s then there is a chance they will die
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.
