When tamed, these are powerful allies, especially early game. I shouldn't invest in movement speed, carry weight or stamina as they're already fast with a bunch of stamina. Instead, go for health and melee damage. They're useful as hunters and are useful for caves
On mobile a taming two of three of these and leveling them up will allow you to take almost anything. Keep their inv full of food and their health basically never goes down. One of the best tames I’ve found because they’re speedy killers and regain Health at unheard of speeds
Raptors are the best beginner's carnivore. They are fast, agile, and can do moderate amounts of damage very quickly, especially in a pack. They can also punce on smaller prey, pinning them down while you finish them off. Similar to the Direwolf, the alpha of a pack will sound a call to the others, causing a buff to all the packmates. Unlike the Direwolf, however, the buff increases attack speed instead of power. This increased attack speed can actually allow you to deal more damage than the Direwolf. Although the name of this creature is just "raptor," it is clearly a Utahraptor, the largest raptor to ever live, growing to the size of an ice cream truck and weighing 1,000 pounds. This was a beast in real life, but not quite in ARK, as they get killed by seemingly everything. Overall, a worthy starter tame, but useless late game. Unless you want to breed them and give them pretty colors.
The raptor is a good beginning mount.It is good at gathering meat and is fast. The raptor however has low stamina and health so fight smaller dinosaur to level up and then move on to fight larger dino. The raptor is a pack animal and in a group can easily kill players. It is also good at base defense if you put your raptors on aggressive and wander IN YOUR BASE WALLS. They are a good first mount and even helpful later on when you tame multiple and make a pack
