The Battle Raptor is one of the first critters listed in the Animal Trainer. A free Battle Raptor is obtained by completing the mission Raptor Crew - Part 2. Players should be careful when utilizing Battle Raptors because rare Teeth are needed to heal these units.
The Battle Raptor is arguably the best animal to train, far superior to its wild counterpart. Unlike the Imperial Boar or War Mammoth, it can attack every other turn, has a reach of 2, and a high chance to suppress, as well as scoring critical hits against certain units. At lower levels it can easily take out most units in one hit. It is also extremely nimble, reliably dodging most tank shells and even capable of surviving a Tank Killer barrage.
Having two Battle Raptors is useful, because the 1-turn cooldown means that one raptor can attack each turn. Unlike the Imperial Boar, the Battle Raptor has longer range and is a well rounded unit. However, the promotion for Rank 2 requires a large amount of Iron, which many players will find difficult to obtain at early levels. After Rank 2, promotions require Lumber instead of Iron.
