Allos are my one of my favourite if not my most favourite creature in all of Ark and if I’m being honest I believe Allos are underrated, and I’ll tell you why. Some people question their uses because if you want a fast ground mount people tend to choose a Carno and if they want a power mount they choose a Rex or a Spino. Allos are in between, fast and a good damage; alone they are dangerous but in packs they are a force to be reckoned with because we all (or most of us at least) know about the pack ability that these gain when in a pack of at least 3, the bleed effect attack, now this attack drains 5% of the targets damage over 10 seconds which means using that specific attack, it can 20 shot any enemy. Using an Allosauruses bleed against a Giga or a Titan will significantly damage it but it would be best to use the Allos as the main damage while another dino tanks all the damage. Anyways, to further explain the pack bonus, the leader will be the highest level (obviously) and the leader does not only gain new attacks but they receive a 50% damage increase and a 25% damage reduction, so if you have an imprinted pack leader, it gains a total of 55% damage reduction which is an extreme damage reduction. There can also be multiple pack leaders, especially when in multiples of 3. Thanks for reading, I hope you found this helpful and might reconsider your thoughts on the Allos.
Allos stay alone until another allo gets close enough. When an allo finds another allo they will join forces and form a pack. The highest level allo becomes the leader once the pack reaches a size of 3 allos. A pack of allos will always follow each others no matter what. They usually follow the leader, but can follow a different allo if say a player calls over that specific allo to follow him . If they wander too far from each other the bond will be broken and the allos will set off on their own until they find each other again or other allos. Once a pack reaches a certain size the allos will stop accepting other allos in their pack. The same goes for tamed allos. Once they reach the max pack size of 15 and more allos are introduced your original 15 allos and the new allos will form different packs. Hope this helps you understand allosaurus pack behaviors. Thanks for reading.
The Allosaurus is a pack-hunting theropod that's smaller but faster than Rex. When in packs of 3 or more, the highest level Allosaurus will become the pack leader, emitting a red aura and making it stronger in battle.~Steel Cookie 123
If you really think about it, these are SOOO underrated. Incredibly high damage and speed. A pack of 10 is easily better than a Giga. 3-4 ballista bolts, (lvl 29 btw) can make a Giga rage, and ballista bolts have a VERY long range, so... you’re dead if you’re riding it. Against a level 30 player. You see 10 Allos coming for you? Run for your ballista? 3-4 Allos dead, still 7 Allos killing you. Even rockets against 10 or so Allos? Crap. You’re still dead. They are so fast and can 20 shot ANY creature in the game if it’s an alpha. Yes, Titantos? Dead in 20 shots. (5% of the creatures health over time.) (Doesn’t work on bosses.) Compared to a Rex, an alpha Allo is arguably equal. Base stats of the Rex are 1100 health and 62 damage. Alpha Allo is 787.5 health and 52.5 damage. They have much faster DPS than Rexes and have better stamina, allowing for more overall damage. Not as much health, but still. To a wild Giga (level 1) with the alpha attack they deal 4000 damage. 4000!!!!!!!!!!
