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!!
Great mount to get to and from hidden sea cave bases, they have enough health and the stun ability to fend of hungry megalodons, fast enough to get away from the nastier stuff like mosas and plesis if levelled a bit, no oxygen(idunno maybe they have gills or something), can get their favourite food source on the journey(fish), they also have decent health and damage, good tame if you like an aquatic lifestyle also equally good if you're just going down into the sea for resources.
These odd-looking little beasts are in fact fearsome sharkysaurs
I took one to the cave in the south first I was nervous but then I got brave enough and ran in I was killing everything in there then when I came out I had lots of prime meat and meat and chitin I felt like I was on the top of the world so bring a medium strong dinosaur to a cave
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.
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
Good mount fast and can swim. Many says it is one of the best cave mounts. But for me every cave has its best mounts. It is best for swamp caves. The reason why its not good is because it needs fish meat. You don't get fish meat available in all caves. Most you encounter are raw meat givers. You can increase lost health by feeding meat or non veg to the respective dinos. I am taking a very basic perspective of cave venturing scenerio. So you have to pack a lot of fish meat before going in or something else you can do for this. Or just take a good level meat eating mount.
