Not only did one kill my me and Parasaur mount (we never stood a chance), my computer froze trying to respawn. This is the first time Ark has crashed my computer. I’m convinced the Terror Bird did this. They are learning how to terrorize us outside the game. AVOID AT ALL COSTS BEFORE THEY ESCAPE THE MATRIX!
These guys are fast as fuk and will catch up to you. On places like scorched and in the red woods be prepared to encounter HUNDREDS OF THESE. They'll easily swarm you if you try to run away and you'll die if you run on foot. Like on the giga page "If you encounter one of these with a friend, Bola your friend and run"
Get yourself a flock of these guys amd make sure they are bred and fully imprinted as well. Well they don't have to be bred but just wont be as good. Trust me on this. These guys are amazing as a flock. Watching them devour everything is amazing. Get tbese guys to as much health as possible and you'll be able to tear through alpha Raptors and Carnos with ease. Trust me
If in the redwood biome run to one of the small streams they glitch and don't register as water for you but it does for the terror bird so you can go prone in those streams and the terror bird will lose agro works for carno to.
