The morrelatops should be one of your first tames on Scorched Earth. They are excellent at gathering berries which will make taming higher level dinos easier, and they can hold water so if you live far away from a water vein or a lake you won't dehydrate.
In a group they attack, individual they run. Pick the lone wolf and lead it by facing the way you want it to go and trap it against a wall or rock or a safe place. No missed shots, no wasted resources, and a easy Morrelatops tame.
Good at harvesting berries, WOOD, thatch and cactus sap. To harvest wood, you need to look for the bushes that look like tiny pine trees. Attack those and you will get about 80-120 wood. Hardly on par with a beaver but much better than looking for trees in the desert.
It can easily kill carnos, sabers and wolves of a lower level in a 1 on 1 as the primary attack has a knock back effect, similar to a trike in the island. The secondary attack is a stomp with an AoE effect. They have decent health and good carry weight and you can drink water from their hump. To fill the water, take it to a well, use carriables or harvest cacti with it.
This tame is a Bad in escaping but for fighting its a good one. You should tame one at lvl 80 lvl it up on health. A lvl 55 would do it too. If you need one for just gathering berries you can use a low Level one like 22 lvl and lvl it up on weight so you dont need to drop all the time.
Lmb:normal attack good for side and Front Attacks
Rmb: high jump attack good for Killing Vultures,Argies,and insectes
It carrys water btw 750 each time you would drink 100 means you good for 7 drinks before reacharging
This abbility is good for travelling tribes or if you have a base without any water source.
The taiming is the easiest Part cause you just need a bomerang and try to get it in a corner where it cant escape.
Now feed him berries and ask a nice tribe for berries.
PS: Starve it,it would be an insta tame

Great dino for almost any needs. Great at collecting berries and wood. Good weight. Easyily takes out predators with normal hit as its knockback is great so if you time it perfectly you keep knocking them back and they cant hit you. Lvl 75+ is able to take out a rex easily.
Morellatops are found almost everywhere on the map except in the dunes. If fighting one you should keep distance unless you are well prepared with armor and/or weapons. Morellatops are easily escaped by running through trees or rocks.
If you find yourself against a herd of these, just keep backing up and using your boomerangs, trans arrows, and slingshots. Both the primary and secondary attacks have a delay before they actually deal damage, and they have to stop moving first, so if you keep backpedaling they won't be able to hit you.
Typically they will run directly the way you are facing when you attack them. You can use that to your advantage by running it into rocks or a mountain side. Be careful if taking on a group! They are faster then they look by far. They have a good topar timer so dropping multiple at once and taming thdm all is not too difficult.
This dino is one of my favorites. Being an early tame it has great carry weight, mobility, & health. The ability to store 750 water is an absolute life saver. You can refill your water skins/water jars/canteens by putting the container in its inventory& remote using it. You can fill their storage by simply walking them to a water source & letting them drink. I recommend taming 2-3 if you plan on doing any traveling. Safety in numbers. Level in Melee, Health,& Stamina (Weight as needed)
When running into these guys, be mindful of groups. If attempting to take one down, check to see how many are around. They fight together in groups& are surprisingly quick for their size. If it's by itself it will run, so be ready to chase. They're relatively easy to take down. Ranged weapons are preferred, but pikes work well also if you can get one stuck on a rock or tree.
