Good tanks for raids! Use as a frontline attack in front of Brontos or Gigas etc, can push tames back when attacking so you can use this for defence too. Their high speed allows you to run from turrets when on low health. Worth it when passive tamed as the low kib needed means you can tame more.
Not really useful tame, but they don't do any damage unless they push you off a cliff. Their attacks are all pushing, no damage. Awesome giant walking prime meat machines to kill and harvest when you are taming something useful. Or tame one and name it the Magic School Bus and drive you and your entire tribe off a cliff into the Volcano.
If you want to go and farm up mountains and are in a tribe of 10or more people it is very easy to get resources as you can up their weight a ton. Have at least 2000 stamina and quite high movement speed. It’s also worth having around 1600 health. Picture this. You are up a mountain with ten tribe members on the diplo. They all have... let’s say 2 metal picks. Flak armour, a metal sword and a assault rifle with a lot of bullets. 5 gets Of and starts mining. A Rex pops up and the still boarded 5 people shoot it. I when it gets too close diplodocus shoves it back and it dies of being shot. And you carry on getting metal and other resources.
These dinos are usefull for many things such as tanking if no turtle is around also i understand that you could use a turtle instead but try this in your next raid it could save your life send in the turtles and then bring the diplos make sure you have at least 3 of these guys they have the health and weight of a bronto with much more movement speed also functions as super fast 10 person getaway in case the raid goes wrong this tactic is especially useful if the tribe you are rading is setup on a mountain easy kills because of knockback have like 3 people on the diplo and the rest on rexes and you will be fine make sure the 3 people the diplo have a steady supy of rockets of the diplo dies then you have 2 more to mount knockback is the best part of this tame this dino can knockback rexes and allos very usefull and if u dont see any other use just have your teibe go on a jurrasic world type adventure take good care of these guys they also gather berries mildly so dont rely on them
Can be used as a soak. Runs very fast has a crap ton of health and can probably be used to broadside shoot rockets off it's back while soaking turrets. This is assuming you get a health roll and level only health. You should see yourself at at least 37k health when fully leveled.
Don't underestimate this dino's usefulness. It may not do damage but it's knock back is very useful for holding off raiders. If your base is near a cliff you can knock players and dinos off it. Another thing is that diplos actually do trample damage. This means that it can kill small creatures like bugs, dodos, and compies by walking in them. In addition there is no level requisite to tame it, so it colud be the first dino you tame.
They are probably the best pack animal in the game, for its size and carry weight it moves super fast allowing it to quickly transport huge quantities of supplies over long distances. It's recommended to pair it up with some other animals as guards as it can't do much in a fight and even though it has a massive health pool it regens health pretty slowly.
If you play PvP you can pair the Diplo with a parasaur and make it easy to find enemy reapers/basilisk/purlovia, just use the parasaur to detect where it is and then have a Diplo attack it and it will push it out of the ground and kill it
