One thing to know is that they can be glitchy.One way you could exploit is to stand in its hitbox and pike/sword it.If you have good stam and speed then simply run at enemies and make him agro onto that.If niether and you just started out you could try to out swim it.One other thig i suggest is that u bola them.Also if you have a house with a normal door run in open the door and pike it (it's pretty much an exploit) but it can't damage you.Last but not least i say you should hit it through the wall if you have anything other then a pike.
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!
If you want to find one of these make sure you’re doing something really important where you just can’t die be on a flying Dino and run out of stamina Trust me they’ll be waiting. And they will kill you. It will kill your Mount It’ll kill your best friend. It’ll kill some guy you don’t know. And then it will kill you so many times that you’ll stop playing ark
I live in a rag server on SW a zone. Outside my house they are everywhere. Every turn I make, they are there. They travel in groups, where they range from level 20 to 160. If I leave my house without bolas these satan parrots will eat me alive. I spend day and night killing the birds as soon as I get them alone, then the Al Capone of terror birds send in another gang of them. Help 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.
