So once I was going to tame a raptor with my dodo, (Rexy) and I was not expecting a WHOLE PACK OF RAPTORS to come and attack me, I took my axe and started to attack them with it, (I was new at the time) I was fighting with my dodo and she died to the alpha, I finally knocked one out. It was a beautiful teal color so I put some meat in it and I soon died to a red one, I named him Charzard and I made a grave for my dodo, 1 like= 1 respect for rexy
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
I don’t mind them, but they get annoying when they LITERALLY KILL THE THERIZINO AND QUETZAL LYING ON THE GROUND THAT WERE VERY HIGH LEVELS. They also killed the Tapejara that I really wanted to tame too. And, well, you know what happened in early game.
When taming a raptor you have to be careful of your surroundings, when I tried on my first time, two of the came up on me and started attacking me, they have a pounce feature when you are on the floor and can’t move or fight back, you get back up after some time but if you are in a fight with 2-4 of them, you’re screwed. When you’re only up against one of them, once you deal enough damage, start chasing, because they are quick to retreat, feed it any meat when it’s unconscious, my raptor is a nice blueish green, her name is Yoshi.
What makes a raptor deadly is it’s pounce attack, which renders the target similar to torpor unconcious for a few seconds( you will not gain torpor, but you will be helpless). During this timeframe a raptor can use its biting attacks while in the pounce stage to inflict serious damage to you and your armor. However, if you ride a medium/large mount, you can negate the pounce, making the raptor a nuisance rather than a killing machine.
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
