DO NOT ENGAGE OR YOU WILL DIE! I was hunting araneos when this thing came out of nowhere and three shot me! All my dimorphs were literally devoured when I came back. It is like centipedes in real life but instead of killing you slowly with poison it kills you with bites quickly. Do not equip anything lower than Chitin or you will get one shot. Make the up arrow green so people can know 🙏🏻
If you want to kill it, get a crossbow, but DON’T hit it with melee weapons. My sword broke in two swings! If you want to tame, get bug repellent or ghillie (or both) and feed spoiled meat. Also, don’t let it hit you, it broke me Mastercraft chitin armor in two-three hits. Hope this helps. Peace out ✌️
Tips for newbies: 1.Do not wear any armor when riding a dino if you want to farm chitin or when you want to go into a small cave full of these. 2.When caving, try your best to avoid any arthroplueras on your way. 3.I don't recommend killing these with a low level raptor because it can absolutely destroy your tames and you too if you're not careful. If you want to farm chitin, just kill dung beetles, spiders or pulmonscorpiuses because they don't give much chitin unless you have a sabertooth or any other good chitin harvesting tames. Goodluck caving ma guy :D
If you plan on building in a cave, build at least 2 layers worth of walls of the material of your choice (the stronger the better). I built in a cave once, I logged in it was fine, I took my raptor out for some meat for my feeding troughs and when I got back, I saw one of these dudes eating my wall. My tames killed it but I had to fix that gap. So if you are planning on building in a cave. Have more than one wall dividing you and the killer centipedes. Or do the the therizinosuarus tips and do the bounce spike wall I mentioned. Never failed me.
