It does torpor over time while holding onto creatures. Although it does take a while to knock anything out on its own. Sharks and anglers will fall asleep in a few minutes but level 140 Mosa took 47 minutes for me. Would be better to have a tribemember to shoot it while you hold it.
Right analog is the ink/speed boost.
Left trigger is the torpor grab right trigger after for blood siphon heal and right trigger is regular attack. Tamed 10 takes a while to really get the hang of it left trigger them into walls ppl won't see them until its 2 late
You can grapple things and reverse drown them by forcing them out of the water, I've done this to an alpha megalodon, you can just take the items from their corpse once they're dead. Sometimes you've gotta push stuff up twice but it's pretty quick and efficient.
Very good at collecting bio toxin, with your aoe attacks you can kill jellyfish groups easily without getting stung by them since your tentacles aren't "attackable" and even If you get stung you won't drop off your Tuso
These guys are your worst fear when in deep water, I was diving on a plesiosaur and one of these guys came out of nowhere to attack me, I escaped because my plesiosaur was a high level but had I gone down on a lower level one I'd be dead, I eventually decided to go back down on my mosa and tame the thing,I grabbed my megalodon as a distraction too and got all the black pearls I could carry, I dove for it and the thing caught my megalodon and I fed it, it Instatamed, I was so proud of myself, I am now the most feared ocean dweller in the server.
If yiu can tame one of these solo then it is will be an tramendous help in taming a mosa, plesi or dunkl. It is the ability to KO creatures when you grab them. Although it is my h easier to tame witg a tanky mosa already at your disposal.
