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
If you need hide , pelt , or chitin, then this is the animal to pick . Speed is decent and they are perfect for caves . Sabers don't fit in all caves so be careful . Plus they are super cute when they are babies !
The Sabertooth can collect meat about as well as Carnos can, and are about as strong, but in addition, along with dire wolves, they collect hide, chitin, keratin, and other non-meat materials from creatures at a high rate. Leech blood, for example.
Powerful, decent stars all around, fast, and can leap forward, allowing you to cross rivers and gaps without even entering them.
Small attack range. Often times leeches will attach before your mounted saber's attack connects.
This is one of the best creatures for early-mid stage tribes. It’s so easy tame, it’s fast, powerful, and common in the North and mountains of the island. Smilodon is a great ally and if you have a larger tribe with a cat each, it’s an unstoppable force.
This thing literally saved my life!
I was on my boat going down Viking bay2 and all os a sudden I was knocked of my boat by lag or something into shark infested waters where out of nowhere my knight In black fur cane from 2km away and somehow saved me in time! That’s right this thing will go as far as to teleport to save its master and I am ever so grateful for its sacrifice. RIP Not So Pink Panther may you forever be at peace.
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.
Don’t set on aggressive when cave diving, mines tried to jump about 100 metres into a lava pool after a Scorpus and ended up swimming in the lava, worse than that was his form was terrible, 4.5/10 max.
