The Utahraptor is a creature from Prehistoric Rift.

Journal Transcript[]

"Utahraptors are predators that form loose packs to hunt mobs since it seems like they know that there's strength in numbers. They usually prefer the plains biomes, but they will ambush prey that step into the forests they call home. Their main weapon is the sickle claw on their foot which they use to slice open the neck of their prey, or cling onto them to damage them.

To gain their trust is a really big deal, as they're commonly believed to be very vicious when really it's possible to reason with them to some degree. Once you give them some food, they'll eventually trust you and not even attack you unless you decide to attack back. What's even a bigger deal is to raise one, as they're really mobile and their ability to climb and pounce on prey can come in handy."

Behavior (Wild)[]

Utahraptors are usually found in groups, though they may be also spotted on their own. They're frail, but they're way faster than many other mobs in the game and they are also agile. They can climb up walls, leap at their targets from afar, and sometimes, perform a pack buff to boost all nearby wild Utahraptors. This pack buff applies swiftness 3 and strength 3.


Utahraptors can be serious pests especially in the early game. They deal quite some damage and have low health, but are fast and attack quick. Be careful of packs however as that's where they're at their strongest.

They're very easy to deal with once you obtain some iron gear and even a shield, and once you tame a creature that can attack, you can quickly squash them as if they were an ant.


To tame a Utahraptor, you must sneak while holding flesh treats, then give it to them to make them eventually trust you. Once they trust you, they will not attack you, though be careful as they might fight back. You then need to give them flesh treats every 10 seconds, which is indicated by an icon above them. Eventually, you will be able to tame them. You can then give them any form of meat to make them grow up and heal them.


Utahraptors are the fastest mount in the addon, which makes them useful for land navigation. This is exacerbated by their ability to climb, which one can trigger by pressing and holding jump while looking up and being next to a climbable block, and disable by looking down while pressing jump.

Utahraptors are somewhat easy to tame. You can eventually tame a whole army of them so that you can use the pack buff ability to make them all shred larger creatures easily. Of course some of them may die, but whatever.

Whenever a Utahraptor falls, they will deal damage to whatever they will come in contact with. Regardless of how far they fell off, they will do 12 damage.

Their swiftness makes them good for a hit and run style attack, but you should watch out for their health as they are very fragile.
