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.

Microraptor gnarilongus is one of the smallest non-avian dinosaurs on the island. Incredibly fast for its size, Microraptor is a voracious carnivore.
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.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

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.

Note that this creature was recently released, so official taming data is not yet available.
The information presented here is based on anecdotal evidence and may not be entirely accurate.
For a level-dependent count of time and resources needed, try an external taming calculator, but keep in mind that their numbers are also unofficial.

Utility[edit | edit source]

  • Used for fighting or as pack animals, they are not rideable
  • Base Guards: because of the Microraptor's ability to attack riders on their mount, if set to aggressive they could be very useful defences as they could kill the raiders before they could put down any bombs. (Level up health and damage)

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

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

  • Dossier released July 20, 2015.[1]
  • 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.
  • 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.[2]
  • It has been confirmed in a digest by the devs that microraptor will be shoulder mountable.[3]
