Direbear has no pause time between hits. The attack has no push back on its end no matter the level. Just think of it as non-stop hit for hit if you're cornered. End result death. But can be avoided because Agro circle is very small (3 foot away from direbear will be its agro circle.) making it easy for a head start run in case you try to tame.
If they start to run after a first few shots stay where you are and stay on a rock or somewhere it can't get you it will deal massive damage I lost a lv 129 baryonyx to a level 50 run in a zig zag it gains speed faster it runs straight
