Baryonyx are quick like Allosaurus and do just as much damage (but don't get a pack bonus). They don't use oxygen for swimming and can sprint in the water. Right click in the water does an AoE stun that lasts about 10 sec. Their 'C' is a... Taunt? They also jump and you can fire a weapon from their back.
These animals do wonderfully for caving expeditions! They especially work nicely in undersea caves as well. All you gotta do is pump into health and melee, find a high level Bary and you’re golden. Imprinted ones are a nice bonus but the one I use was wild caught at lv. 145. Just finished the cave containing the Artifact of the Clever with my Baryonyx, Greenbeard. He slew many bats and spiders. He is my indispensable caving mount and made it a breeze. Plus if you fall into water, that tail spin makes short work of most aquatic critters. Please, Wildcard, never nerf this tame. 100/10, a wonderful and good boi for any survivor to have.
Excellent tame for living on a boat due to it's ability to breathe underwater. Will harvest hundreds of raw fish meat whilst defending you from other underwater nasties. My Bary lvl 64, named Ratchet, killed in excess of 35 Megs before meeting his match with a lvl 40 Alpha Meg whilst defending our house boat. A salute to all your hard work old friend, you shall be avenged.
These guys are the absolute best! I tamed a max lvl 150 baryonyx and bred it with my lvl 152 baryonyx and got an OP, 78% imprinted baryonyx. Her name is Moon. As of right now she is lvl 234, with 8,500 hp, 700% melee damage, and 135 movement speed. She can obliterate almost any Dino on land and sea, including rexes and spinos. Also, if you get a high level, you get of added stats per level up, and they level up insanely fast. They are the absolute BEST cave mount IMO (except for the Northwest cave, otherwise known as the cave of the sky lord, because it can not fit in the entrance, like all other cave mounts), because their long neck allows you to reach the flying dangers of the cave and it protects you from the arthroplura’s spit balls. That combined with their attack speed and amazing damage output makes it my favorite cave mount. Just watch out in the lava cave, because you can easily get pushed off into the lava or fall in the lava due to a bad jump. I am about to try out the cave of the strong, but I have no doubt in my mind that I will demolish it. It has one attack on land, which is his bite attack, along with an option to make it roar, but like the spino’s roar this does nothing. On water they have their bite attack and a tail spin that stuns nearby dinos(use button that you use to jump on land to use tail spin). On top of that, they can jump, which makes it a good travel mount, and once again, an amazing cave mount. This and the spino are my two favorite dinos as of right now, and if you are debating about getting one of these, GET ONE RIGHT NOW.
These guys are the perfect cave mounts, I've solo'd the swamp cave with one. The only caves i haven't done with them is the ice and water caves, although i can see it being possible in the easy water cave. They're also perfect alpha carno killers because of their stun attack
