The best way to gather chitin for early players in scorched earth, unless you can somehow manage to tame a sloth early on. I take mine out to hunt for scorpions or thorny dragons, and taking out jugbugs with these is better than just using an axe. This is great for getting cementing paste to make wells which are pretty much essential in scorched earth. Once i harvested 30 keratin from a thorny, so I would recommend hunting those for a good amount.
This is basically an upgraded raptor. You can use them to collect meat, travel, and cave exploration. They're great for taming other dinos. Bring them along when you tame other dinosaurs so you can easily kill anything that tries to attack you or your taming dino.
It is a very fast mount, especially when you sprint + jump. It is stronger than a raptor, weaker than a carno(in the wild). Tamed if you level it up enough it can even take on a rex. It harvests a lot of chitin and hide, even more than it harvests meat. Perfect creature to cave with.
Simply amazing at collecting hide and chitin. You can easily get 50-60 chitin per scorpion kill. Hide numbers run up quick too. Within minutes you'll be sitting at around a 1000 hide. They're quicker than the raptor Imo and pack a much harder punch. They do lack higher defense like other big dinos, but don't be fooled by their size. These guys are nasty. I recommend getting health above 1800. Stamina around 800-100, movement speed 130+, and melee around 250-300%. If you can achieve this, you'll have an exceptional utility hunter.
Collects hide, chitin, and keratin very well. Very good in caves. A good tame to use in a group with mate boosting. Stronger than raptors, and requireing a saddle gives them more defence than a wolf. With a short breed time a good tribe can breed awesome stats into them quickly. Good to use on s.e. in a group to hunt deathworms
