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!
For the love of god, do not fight them in water! A level 4 baryonx nearly killed my Theri because the baryonx had stunned him. No matter how shallow the water is, do not even think about fighting one. They can stun you and knock you off your creature.
Never ever ever take one of these guys on with a pteranadon even if your friend tells you to. These Dino's can knock you off your mount and stun you for ten seconds, this is no dillo blinding attack when stunned you cannot do anything at all except watch him eat you and your dino.
As soon as you see one, lure it out of the water, Bola and tranq it. They’re easy enough to tame on raw fish IF you catch them before they have a chance to KILL all the fish in the area which is what you’ll usually find them doing 😂. Amazing Dino for such an easy tame. Do NOT, under any circumstances, get in the water near it - they’re fast and will catch up to you and stun you before you can swim back out. If this happens, all you can do is watch helplessly as it eats you and your Dino friends.
