Increasing dmg stat does not increase saddle weapon dmg. Seemed intuitive based on saddle info but was not the case. Found out after doing more research myself but hopefully I can save someone else some heartache
Guy from the summoner, noglin, and shadow mane tips! These guys are probably the most BUSTED tame out of all the tames in gen 2 and possible the entire game. These guys can do 5 different attacks with 2-3 of em to do MASSIVE damage to any structure. AND THE BEST OF ALL? TURRETS WONT SHOOT THE GRENADES! (Going to be nerfed 85% chance) If you manage to “somehow” get your hands on ascendant an saddle then and have a high level bred one mutagneized (definition for the word in Stryder page). Then you can possible raid any base that isn’t a cave.
(Xbox controls) So they have their basic mode, where they fly slowly and can go in water. Then, when you press the tertiary attack button, it goes into star fighter mode, and the wings extend. It becomes a plane, and in sprint mode goes extra fast. It can tip right or left with the movement button, but it flies on its own and just goes forward. You can use the movement button and move it left or right twice to do a barrel roll to that side. Pressing the primary attack fires two small two cannons, secondary attack (if you have grenades) fires a rocket and holding primary attack will lock onto a target and fire a ten missile. If you fire a rocket, you can press secondary attack again and explode it prematurely. Tertiary attack does a loop, which can help you get on an enemies tail. You can pull back on the movement button to slow it down, and if you aren’t sprinting, forward to speed it slightly. It is the fighter counterpart to the astrocetus, which is something of a bomber helicopter. It would be something to see two players dogfight with this, although to effectively use it drains element. Overall, it is the master fighter of the skies, and can flee to the water if the battle is not going well, and if things are bad underwater it can always fly out. Weapons are not equip able, but you are plenty set without them. When sprinting, they get an extra speed boost when they dive. I find them to be an excellent advanced battle creature, and would recommend to anyone. They are fast, safe, maneuverable, and they can hold their own in or escape from any situation. Happy hunting, and have a nice day
For those concerned about the FOOD BUG, you need to put a saddle on, use element to quickly find an easy to kill dino and kill it with the MELEE attack(not the lasers) and then harvest it. You can see if it worked by sprinting normally(non-starfighter mode). If the food doesn't go down by the thousands, it worked. This has permanently fixed the bug for my tames.
