Just tamed a level 122 on Dead Island no kibble and only a few narcs on me. Had to fight off a scorpion and a sabertooth to keep from it waking up. As the tame was close to finishing I was attacked from behind by two scorpions and they knock me out. As I'm getting attacked by them and I am sure that I am a goner, the raptor tames, gets the them off of me, and kills both of the scorpions. I wait in horror as my consciousness returns, hoping that I am not going to die to a patrol. I didn't, and I turn around and see a Rex almost close enough to aggro me. I put my raptor on follow ran to my raft, and escaped the island as the Rex was chasing me. I named him Saving Grace on the way back, but as I am passing the swamp, a sarco attacks my raft. It knocks my beloved raptor off, and it was swarmed by the sarco and a group of megapiranha. I try to call it to follow, and it dies almost instantly. I am utterly devastated and heartbroken...... :'((
Try to stay in flat open land, this allows you to easily snare the raptor with a bola. Approach slowly until it runs straight at you then throw the bola at it. Once hit with the bola you can easily KO it using any method you choose.
Use parasuar kibble for faster and higher level tames if possible since you need less than 30 kibbles for a perfect 100+ level tame. It may also be easier at lower levels since gathering meat can sometimes be difficult and parasuars are easy tames.
If you hit a level 95 raptor, with a bola. It is very easy to knock out with Tranq arrows and fist. VERY EASY. The only hard part of taming a raptor is the part of just sitting and putting meat and giving it narcos or narcoberries.
The raptor is a good beginning mount.It is good at gathering meat and is fast. The raptor however has low stamina and health so fight smaller dinosaur to level up and then move on to fight larger dino. The raptor is a pack animal and in a group can easily kill players. It is also good at base defense if you put your raptors on aggressive and wander IN YOUR BASE WALLS. They are a good first mount and even helpful later on when you tame multiple and make a pack
Generally, you're going to want to invest in stamina and carrying weight for a while if you tame a low-level raptor. They're naturally fast,so you don't truly need many points in movement speed, and you can outrun almost all other predators, so health isn't needed either.
These guys, for some reason, can't beat turtles. Several times I have seen a 1v1 between a level 30 raptor and level 10 turtle, turtle is barely standing but the raptor goes down regardless. So if you see ONE fighting a turtle, it's a lost cause.
Speedy, deadly and agile the raptir is the perfect mount for getting around the island if you have just started playing ark. The saddle for the raptor is unlocked at lvl18. Raptors efficiently kill small dinosaurs, and can even kill a trike. Once upgraded they can take on low level Carnotauruses.
You don't really need to make the kibble for the raptor, it tames fairly quickly with just raw meat. When you tame them, make sure you're either in a clear, flat area or shooting at it from where it can't get to you. When on flat land, snag it with a bola when it runs directly at you so you have a clear shot. You could either hit it with a slingshot or tranq arrows and it will go down quickly. Watch out for other raptors, they often hang out in packs.
Was trying to tame a 135 turtle, left to get food, and when I came back a raptor was killing it. After it killed my turtle, I was it's next victim. Only then I realized it was a level 150. I tried to knock it out, but it ran in the water and got killed?.
Find one and single it out because typically they’re in packs of 3-4. When it’s chasing you, bola it because it runs ina straight line. Then it should be easy to knock it our with a club, slingshot, or even fists depending on level. Or use about 1-3 tranq arrows on a low level and more for a high level
