That moment at the night when you knew they are walking outside and you really need wood or food so you sneak to the first bush or tree. And then you finaly got the thing u need u see the red eyes.. then u know you are fcked up.. but when it knocks out me its run cirkles around me so i can wake up and then they knock me out again and that over and over and over...
Me and my Carnotaurus went out on an adventure together for the first time and around 4 troodons and a raptor attacked us. He couldn’t attack them because because his turn radius is bad, so I jumped off to try and save him from dying. After I respawned I went back with my pteranodon to try and get my stuff back but before I could escape my carnotaurus and my pteranodon died (a dilophosaur snuck up on my pteranodon while I was trying to save my carno) which left me stranded to die again. I will never go back there again. 1 up=1 prayer for Carnold and Petrie
This section describes how to fight against the Troodon.
It is not advised to engage in combat with a Troodon in melee range as these cheeky buggers are small, move very fast, and their poisons cause rapid torpor gain that is not lessened by Riot Gear. Fight them mounted, or keep stimberries on your hotbar and constantly eat them while fighting. However the latter is less likely to work against more than one Troodon.
Their venom only drains stamina on other creatures but adds torpidity to survivors, so as listed above it is advisable to fight them on a mount. Any mount will do, since Troodons have low HP, but high stamina is advised. If you must dispatch of a Troodon then do so during the day if you can help it. They can very easily conceal themselves in environments dense with foliage, rocks and trees so be sure to take all pack mates into account before attacking.
To combat a Troodon, use either a tamed & mounted dino or ranged weapons so it can't knock you out. You can also try to throw a bola at it. Then you can just use a range weapon, or a melee weapon with reach to kill it (i.e. Pike). Avoid getting too close.
Troodons are considerably stronger at night. Their aggro range and speed increase by a large amount. A huge danger to early game Survivors. They also gain pack bonus similar to compies, max of +4 only works at night. Packs usually consist of 3-4 individuals.
Long ranged weapons such as the Crossbow can nullify the Troodon's torpor effect if used properly. Troodon are scared of most light sources and will run away from campfires and torches, carry one on you to deter attacks
Get a dimophodon. Have it sit on your shoulder on attack target. Get it’s health pretty good and crank the damage up. If the Troodons knock you out. I’ve had it where one Dimophodon kills anywhere from 1-5 troodons with like four points into damage and one into health. It has saved me so many times. Cannot recommend it enough.
Earlier I went into the jungle to get a supply crate. I saw a Troodon that I thought was alone. I pulled out my sword to kill it. An entire pack came after me. I killed them all but fell unconscious. I got back up and started running away after realizing I risked my life for a water jar blueprint. Another pack of Troodons attacked me. I luckily defeated them, but fell unconscious again. I woke up again with 10 health. I was also overheating, but there was a stream of water just outside of the jungle. After waking up, I limped into the stream where I cooled down, healed up, then left to go back to Herbivore Island. I hate Troodons. I also really dislike blue supply crates now because it gave me a water jar blueprint after nearly dying to two packs of Troodons.
