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.
Guys I want to tame an itchysaurus, but I’m really scared of going into the ocean. I am a level 20, so I have no awesome weapons to kill megalodons. Will my level 18 baryonyx, Slicer, protect me and not die himself?
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 are great for doing fish meat runs. Most water mounts such as Basils, eat fish meat as fast as they can gather it. Others such as spinos simple are a pain to use in underwater combat due to turn radios and hit box. Baryonyx gathers fas much fish meat as a spino, but better due to its stun ability and unlimited oxygen and maneuverability. Just swim right up to a megladon, stun it, chomp. Rinse and reappear. Best at fish meat gathering in my opinion. Never underestimate their stun ability!!
It’s just perfect, because except for the snow cave, and maybe some of the underwater caves(which i recommend you use a basilo for which is an easy tame with this puppy) you can do every single cave with a high level Baryonyx.
They are just so OP.
It's like a small Allo combined with a Kapro, in my opinion. Useful on both land & in the water. Use its secondary attack while swimming to stun, attack, and harvest. Does NOT stun Cnidarias, though, so do not expect to overpower them.
These are what I use to gather fish meat, which is useful since they, amongst other things such as otters, only eat fish meat. It’s a must have when breeding them and other fish eating dinos. Simply swim off shore, stun any megs/mantas, eat them as they sit there helplessly, rinse and repeat.
Great mount for the swamp. Riding in 1st person is just below the tree line. It's tall enough to avoid some kaprosuchus leaps. It has a high torpor to survive the snakes/frogs. Eating raw fish helps it heal super fast. It has a good sprint speed, can jump and can swim. My new favorite mount
