Be careful, you most likely won't be able to outrun one of these guys (even on a raptor). Two terror birds vs my 150+ pachy, raptor and parasaur ...my para and pachy died and by the time my raptor and I tried to outrun them but eventually killed them she was very low health. You can find these suckers everywhere. I've seen them on beaches, deserts and redwood forests.
I definitely think everyone should get one of these guys! They're very fast and can do lots of damage. They will complete your dino army.
Made a base in the redwoods on mobile. Therefore, I always get raided by at least one of these guys daily. Carnos, dire bears, purlovias, argents, and allosauruses not included. Good thing I’m a tamer. I got about 17 dinos ready to kick their asses out of my base. I also get a stack of hide easily in a day. Got over 60 stacks and I don’t know what to do with them.
They fit through a doorframe. :) it killed my unconscious level 150 direbear which was at 96% ALL because it walked its little devilish arse into my trap because THE STUPID THING CAN FIT THROUGH DOORFRAMES. :)
These little birds are the devil. One minute you're walking all peacefully not a thing in sight, then out of nowhere you're being attacked by this thing! They often travel in pairs too. They are easy tames, but when you're not expecting to come across them, they're deadly. I recommend always carrying at least 5 bolas with you, when you get attacked by one of these, bola it and you then got 30 seconds to run away. Run fast! Don't think hiding on a rock will help you either. Also deep water is your friend. Just Like the raptor, quickly jump into water. They won't be able to attack you.
I hate them with a passion like no other. Fast, travel in groups, very aggressive and strong attack means these things won't hesitate to make a meal out of you. All over SE and heavily concentrated in the Red Forest on The Center. If you can outrun them, (higher level = faster bird) best thing to do before you run out of stamina is introduce them to their oversized cousin the paracer. Stand by it's legs and let the bird try to attack you. I will accidentally bite the Paracer and make it angry. Immediately move out of the paracer's legs and run forward then across the path of the paracer again as the bird won't de-agro off you till it takes damage from the Paracer. If the paracer is anymore than 20 levels below the bird, or if the bird has friends, run like hell! If not, wait and the Paracer will kill it for free meat and hide and often some items, as they carry them usually. Same idea works with wolves, cats, etc. You can also run them into other defensive dinos or their fav snacks!
This thing will aggro on most dinos you knock out. Me and my buddies were taming a 150 Rex, on Ragnorack, in a taming pin, and right when it got close to 98%, one of these douchebags ran past THREE Tribemates and ran STRAIGHT to our Rex to nibble on his nose. He lost 15 levels on Taming that day. Our Tribe member taming the Rex was speechless. Then we let the Rex eat the Terror Bird's corpse. It was a good day.
