When I first encountered a carno I had a lucky escape.it attacked from behind and sent me flying and I did not know what hit me but I ran until I fell of a cliff the carno followed and got stuck so get them stuck.
The Redwoods on the Center is the best place to find high level Carnos. Most of them are in the upper 90s, with the exception of a few level 45s.
Carlos are really great all around if you can get past their horrendous stamina recovery
I tamed one of these guys on craggs island, they are quite good tames even without a saddle because they take on just about everything and their horns are natural sunglasses so they can fight in the summer!
WILD Carnos are just 0.5 units faster than a player with no points in speed, 892 vs. 892.5
If you have one point in movement speed, you should just be able to outrun wild Carnos, but don't count on it.
I used another Dino to locate it and did frocetame LoL hacks to get force tame on Xbox go on pause then go LB+RB+X+Y den press Admin commands so if u see a Dino face it go to pause and press admin commands bam a new Dino plus u can ride it without a saddle
One attacked me while I was taming a baryonyx. I was able to take it out with a crossbow and pike, but If your any lower level than that you better run around other dinos and hope you have enough stamina.
I hate these things more than I hate taxes. Get movement speed to a solid 134%. I've found that you can out run them with that. If you're in red wood run to a dire bear for safety even if it's wild just don't go too close. I've never seen a carno kill a bear. Collect the carno's prime after this and enjoy ;).
I didn't know about anyone else but be careful. My first encounter way by a river and one of these game out of the woods and attacked my Parasaur at same time a raptor worked with it and took me off my mount and killed me. Never thought I'd see two different species work together.
