The Microraptor (MIKE-row-rap-tor) is one of the creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena, the author of the dossiers has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creatures.

NoteHelena.png
Wild
Microraptor gnarilongus is one of the smallest non-avian dinosaurs on the island. Incredibly fast for its size, Microraptor is a voracious carnivore.
Domesticated
While not a powerhouse against armed enemies, Microraptor is particularly suited at bringing down enemy riders. Microraptor's natural tendency to attack weaker creatures means they ignore the mount while attacking the rider with leaps of fury.
Known Information
Aggressive towards anything its size or smaller, Microraptor fancies itself an apex predator. It will attack humans on sight, especially if it's not alone. When hunting, Microraptor's speed is only one of its assets. While not quite capable of sustained flight, its wings allow it to stay aloft for several seconds while jumping. This allows Microraptor to attack its prey's vulnerable areas, as well as search for small river fish.
~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

In spite of the dossier's statement of the Microraptor being an aggressive hunter, this is only partially true. The Microraptor will attack a survivor that comes close, but only stuns them briefly before fleeing, without doing much damage to the survivor. They seem more skittish and timid rather than truly predatory.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Microraptor is a small carnivorous dinosaur strongly resembling a bird with a reptilian face. The large feathers on their limbs act as primitive wings, allowing them to glide for short distances in pursuit of arboreal prey or to attack mounted riders.




Color Scheme and Regions

This section displays the Microraptor's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Microraptor. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Microraptor will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.

Server admins can use this region information in the Console Command "cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>".
For example, "cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6" would color the Microraptor's "body" magenta.

Pack Boost

It appears that Microraptors receive pack boost, just like Compy and Troodon.

Wild Stats Level-up

Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding-stats with an external tool.[1]

Microraptor
The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps

Note that after the creature is tamed it gets bonuses on some stats depending on the taming effectiveness. This makes it hard to retrieve the levels on a tamed creature, so this tool is only for wild ones, but gives a first impression, how well the stats are distributed.

Combat[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

The Microraptor employs hit and run tactics if you get too close. They will not attempt to kill you, but only stun you then sprint away. Sometimes they kill you.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Can be easily killed with almost any weapon if trapped in a bola or bear trap.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

While the Microraptor itself does not pose any true threat, its ability to knock riders off their mounts and immobilize them can allow more aggressive dinos to finish you off.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

There are two simple ways to kill a Microraptor, due to their speed and agility, chasing them will not lead to results, and may land you in front of a hungry Rex. Instead, it is reccommended you use a bola on the microraptor and take it down while it is immobilised. The other method relates to being attacked while riding a mount, the best thing to do in this situation is to get off your mount and allow your pet to destroy your little feathered attacker. It is also best if you whistle neutral to your mount after getting off it, otherwise it won't do anything and will simply watch you get attacked.

KO Strategy[edit | edit source]

If you happen to encounter one of these little guys in the wild and wish to tame it, Stand far enough away to be safe, Hit it with a bola, Then just pelt it until it gets knocked out. Note that while bola'd, the Microraptor will still make small, weak lunges at you.

Preferred Food[edit | edit source]


Utility[edit | edit source]

  • Used for fighting or as pack animals, they are not rideable
  • When thrown or whistled to attack an enemy mounted on a dino, the enemy player will be dismounted and stunned.
  • Using them as a bodyguard is also valuable. When mounted on your shoulder, you are ready for a range of pvp sudden encounters

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Microraptor, see the relevant Wikipedia article

  • Dossier released July 20, 2015.[2]
  • The Microraptor was one of the first dinosaurs found with feathers.
  • In real life, it is believed to have eaten insects and small lizards rather than larger animals.
  • Despite being listed in the dossier as a carnivore, its two favorite foods are Rare Flowers and Rare Mushrooms.
  • The skull that is attributed to Microraptor in the dossier actually belongs to the famous Velociraptor and it is nearly identical in appearance to this picture of a Velociraptor skull.[3]
  • It has been confirmed in a digest by the devs that microraptor will be shoulder mountable.[4]
