I bring Baryo inside the cave to gain artifact of clever and pack! They’re good on both land and sea. Pump its health and damage, then you’re good to go! Ps: if you don’t have kibbles to tame it, use prime fish meat by aggro-ing sabertooth salmon with sickle.
Is really fast, must-tame if you wanna run away from allosaurs. Also has a ripple ability which stuns water tames. Fun: on land, swipe down for a roar (talking about mobile controls). It’s a little cute.
These guys can’t swim straight up or down, they go up at in incline, so watch your oxygen stat when riding into deep ocean, it will take longer to surface. Whirlpool attack is good tho, and also makes a great name
AWESOME mount, can take down carnos, raptors, therizinos, megalodons,
Sarcos,titanoboas and any underwater creatures, has no oxygen,gets
LOADS of fish meat and prime fish meat,best swamp mount and finally
Improve its health to about 3k and it can take down almost anything!
When taming its pretty easy because it gets affected by bolas.
A great first tame!
Breed one and get imprinted. Strongest Dino I have and can stun megalodons and mantas so basilosaurus are easy to tame. If you have good one alpha megs are easy + level up movement for insane swimming speed. No 1 best Dino
My friend and I were in the cave in dead island, I rode a baryonyx, he had a dire bear. We cooked the cave with our tames level 50-70. My favorite Dino because of its versatility. It traverses that cave very easy, anger in and out with no problem especially with its jump. By far my go to because of how good it is in land water and caves.
While it may look less threatening than a Carno, Baryonyx is still a very viable choice of mount, especially considering the fact that it’s more maneuverable than a Carno, especially in water, where it can stun anything its size with a tailspin. In addition, due to being a swamp native, leeches will ignore it. Much better mount overall in my opinion, with the only downsides being it’s frail at low levels and fairly rare.
With a shark and two of these bad boys as an escort, the ocean is your oyster. Mine have protected me flawlessly against sharks, anglers, eels, and manta with their sweeping stun attack. Even Plesiosaur and Mosa get quickly overwhelmed by the sheer DPS two of these can do as it will alternate who it attacks rather than focusing on one Dino. I’ve even been saved from JELLYFISH by these guys as they can attack in any direction even when being stunned (a swarm of jellies will stun lock them, but one or two is manageable with enough melee and HP boost.)
WARNING you can easily lose this Dino in the ocean after fighting manta and Megalodon as each shark gives them 300 or so fish meat and mantas around 200 - they get overburdened with meat FAST. Check their weight after each big fight!!
One of the most underrated dinos on ARK. Easy tame, just aggro let it get out of the water then bola it. Its the ATV of ark. Very underrated. Its fast on land and water. Having megladon problems? Baryonyx it. Stuns them, even in groups, then collects all that prime fish meat!! One of the first dinos I look for when starting.
Take it to upper south cave and murder the ever living fuck out of every single piranha that you can find. It regenerates health just by killing the fishes, and while the piranhas are too small to be affected by the stun effect, the spin attack still has a full 360 AoE. The Baryonyx will effectively cancel out ANY damage dealt by those little pests!
