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.

Aggressive towards anything regardless of size, 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. Notable, the creature also tends to use this ability to knock oblivious humans off of their mounts.

Domesticated

While not a powerhouse against armed enemies, Microraptor is particularly suited to dismounting enemy riders. Microraptors natural tendency to attack weaker creatures means they can ignore the mount while attacking the rider with leaps of fury.

~ 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. The microraptor's strategy is to knock you off your mount and kill you while you are immobilised. Once it has done so it will then flee to escape the bloodthirsty beast you took on your journey. After this it will attempt to kill you once more while you try to get your stuff back. However if a microraptor is in a group this does not occur as they get a pack bonus will not run away.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Evidently, these creatures are not strong. They are easily killed once trapped in a bola or bear trap and almost any weapon.

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 usually 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. However the microraptor can be particularly dangerous to riders who have have just been badly hurt in a fight and are close to death or are low level, as the microraptor can kill them easily while they're immobilized and unable to defend themselves.

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 recommended 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.
  • Thanks to 200% speed taming bonus Microraptor is the fastest tamed ground creature in the game, which can easily outrun even Gallimimus. Though not as good shoulder-mounted fighter as Dimorphodon it still can be helpful for hunting fleeting herbivores like Parasaur and Phiomia.

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]
