This dinosaur is a very intricate but interesting dinosaur to get. I did find it near the shore line as it had seen me and wanted to eat me. However I had 5 tranq arrows which you can get at lvl 21. I shot all 5 and he fell to the ground. Very good dinosaur to tame especially in the water. It beats anything in the water even with its stun strike. I recommend using this dino to fight. I have one named Juju. One like equals One love for Juju
When I was a noobie in Ark I saw this guy. Like the therizinosaur incident with me thinking this guy is passive I walked up to him while he was busy dealing three raptors. He slew the raptors easily then he drew his attention to me. I was like “Hello there” and he was like “Omae wa, mou shindeiru.” He stunned and easily killed me. Lesson learned. Don’t ever, ever go near creatures dealing with other hostiles. You might save your character by doing this.
Super easy to tame, but better than a Spino or Rex. Literally faster than a raptor, and swims pretty fast. Unlimited oxygen, super good stamina, stun attack (10 seconds), high damage, great jump, good weight. This thing is INSANE. I’d definitely recommend you keep it in your arsenal. Water base defense especially. Great creature to have on your water platform saddles, as it can stun lock creatures and knock players off their mounts.
NEVER and I mean NEVER FIGHT IN WATER. They will stun and all you can do is wait as you see this thing kill your lv 132 triceratops. That has killed rexs. Rip Trixie the triceratops Jan 2020- Mar 2020.
Mines name is lulu and she’s one of my best Dino’s. They may be small but their a beast on land and in water. Don’t underestimate the bary. Easily one of my favourite Dino’s and one of the best cave mounts👍
Be VERY careful with these things. They're difficult to kill at low player levels, and your best bet is to bola it and book it in the other direction. Unless you've got an ascendant bow and some high ground, you're screwed. And NEVER go into the water with those things nearby; their tail spin stuns you if the Baryonyx is in the water.
I would argue that this dinosaur is the strongest mount that can fight on both land and in the water. I had one that was bred multiple generations, full imprint, purple saddle. I named him Fury to represent all of the anguish I experienced leading up to his creation. He was able to handle anything I threw at him with ease. People were surprised to hear that I was easily able to kill both squids and alpha carnos with him. Never got to attempt an alpha Rex. He met his match when I attempted an alpha squid. RIP Fury.
Extremely useful, find them near almost any river bank. Lure them out of the water (do NOT try to fight them in the water, you will 100% die) and bola them. Then either knock them out with a few hits or hit it with a tranq arrow. We use them as protection when traveling, and they have takes out everything from a pack of raptors to a therinosaurus to carnos.
