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.
If you ever see one alone, get the heck out of there. It will kill your friends, your family, and everyone you ever met. Including you. I had a shotgun. And I killed one. Then sometime later, a Baryonyx comes and eats my Tapejara, my raptor pack, my rex, and most of my thatch home (Don't ask) I ended that Baryonyx with my trusty shotgun I named Cal.
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.
One is surrounding my area where I tame parasaurs, trikes, carbonemyses, diliphosauruses, igunadons, and pteranodons. My plane is to bola it, then kill or tame it. The baryonyx is near water.. should I do this.. I could lose my dinosaur(s). I’m scared
So, I began playing Ark, and happened to build a base right next to where a Baryonyx lived. My friend was gathering things from the other side of the river, and led one right to the base. It had been like a Jaws movie for the next few days. Well, I have formed a plan to get rid of it. Wish me luck!
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.
