ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
These make decent scouting mounts. They're relatively quick & their ability to glide by holding the jump button can get you out of some sticky situations that wouldn't be possible on a raptor (jumping from a cliff to escape predators). I suggest leveling in Health, Stamina, & Melee (Movement Speed as needed).
More Terror Bird Utility Tips
If you hold the jump button when you're falling on a terror bird, it tries to fly and falls slower.
just learnt this yesterday cause i never have tamed a terror bird before then in my life
Also quick thank you to Sunburn the Terror Bird for making Scorched Earth slightly less of a hell for me! :D
YALL WEREN’T LYING ABOUT THE GLIDING ABILITY- it’s little wing flapping😭😩 they’re not bad, they do have little stamina and don’t do much damage but they’re quick so I would only recommend for short travel also the amount of time they can Glide depends on their stamina too so be careful. -V
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
Everyone seems to limit this to just being a "scout". If you get a high level (170+) the terror bird can easily be one of the most deadly mounts out there. It's speed is unmatched and its ability to glide from any height, if it has the stamina that is, makes it amazing. If you pump HP, speed, stamina, and later on movement speed, you will have an absolute killer. (WARNING: Even high level terror birds will have low weight, only bring your essentials to maximize on speed!)
