This thing is the true Boogeyman of Ark. It has a very distinct sound, they make, so if you hear it, it’s probably a good idea to sprint in the opposite direction and hope it didn’t see you. This bastard and a half can be extraordinarily sneaky, though, and I’ve had several cases of a couple breaking down my dodo coop and murdering them. They tend to travel in packs of at least two, often male and female, so if you see one and kill it or knock it out, don’t let your guard down; there’s probably more. Once came across a pack of seven of these thugs, and they tore up my entire base trying to get to my poor dodos and dilos. Honestly. What did they do to deserve that? :(
Cheap scum who will snipe you off your mount without warning and will hundred to zero you because you’re perma stunned. It doesn’t get better as you level up, they still dominate the top slot of most menacing and terrible creature on the island
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.
