If you are having a hard time finding spino's in their respective spawn zones (especially Ragnarok), kill all the fish in that area. They share the same spawn capacity and can be out spawned by coles! ( up vote so Rag players know!!!)
Got my first spino pretty easy with my heart pounding after witnessing the havoc it can wreck..I laid a couple of large bear traps and lured it into them the shot it with tranq darts...and fed it with narcotics and fish meat..I am currently terrorizing my area with the spino and two baryonyx
Whenever you're taking the Spino, remember to take at the very least 300 narcotics. It wakes up FAST, and whenever your taming ANY creature, surround it with wooden spike walls! Saves me countless tames from smaller pack animals. And to knock it, you simply need steep high ground and go to town with your tranqs. Happy taming!
To be strictly honest the spinosaur is one of the best mounts in game if you are even wble to obtain one be sure to make it a high level one they are very squishy at first so go around killing small dinos before attacking big prey
Place 3 stone dino gates and one giant bear trap in middle, shoot it and boom here he comes... While he is on trap place last stone dino gate on the back ez tame. Really good in swamp everything fears them and kapro cannot grab you while standing in 2 legs.
Once tried to tame one for my bf while he was offline bc he wanted one. Flew with my Pterra and shot it full of 20!!!!! tranq arrows . Didn’t even flinch. I got too cocky and went too close to the edge of the cliff i was standing on. I fell off RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE SPINO. it’s health was low enough that it started to run away. Without looking back, i whistled for my Pterra to follow and ran for my life. currently trying to get another one :( wish me luck!
TLC patch coming in March 2018 to add the ability to swap between 2 legged mode (faster attacks and ability to attack with claws) and 4 legged mode (Faster movement), as well as increased turning radius, movement speed, damage, and health regen while in water and for a short time after leaving it. Like so people can see!
