Whenever u stumble accross one of these just run and try to run it any other creature like a trike diplo a parasaur it will be distracted, use that opputunity to run.do not engage head on unless u have a good armor and weapon
These guys are very annoying when you're taming things one of em killed my knocked out therezino I was at 50% beware new players but if you're strong enough bring you're spino and wipe you're area of these guys
This is if you encounter a an alpha raptor near the shore. The best option I've found is to use a longneck rifle with a scope. Dump all your things into a raft with a chest, once you're stripped attract the alpha raptor to the edge of the shore and let it kill you.Respawn on or near your raft with all your things and take it out to the raptor but maintain a far enough distance that it doesn't chase after you. from there croutch so you get a steady shot and use the longneck and scope to shoot at it. It depends on the level but I managed to take out a level 10 with this strategy. Make SURE YOU HAVE LOTS OF AMMO. Good luck friends.
Just because they are far away from you doesn’t mean they will not go to your area. I saw one far
Away from the base and 2 minutes later boom he knocked me down like a person who needs life alert and now
I’m dead. This travel distance makes them very hard to avoid. Keep a bowla on you seriously.
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
You can kill these with a hatchet. I was minding my own business when I start getting hit by a lev 7. Hit it with the primitive club till it was knocked out then finished it with a hatchet. I’m level 5 and new to ark.
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? :(
Found a 150 so I went back to base and grabbed my kibble. I came back and it was still sitting there. I used a bola and trapped it and knocked it out. Turns out it had a buddy. Killed its buddy and then waited for it to tame. It tamed and came out at 215. It’s so OP. I love it so much.
