Just found out something really useful about Brontos! You can use them to transport goods a long way, but sometimes you have more than the bronto can carry, so, if you pack your resources on something like a high level parasaur or iguanodon, and put it on the platform saddle, it only takes the Dinos drag weight, not resource weight, allowing you to carry tons of materials at half the weight! Arrow so people can see this!
It would be good if this dinosaur gets a new attack, like a stomp, because, a tail that whips opponents gets boring. And a stomp makes sense due to its large size. Hopefully people agree, and those who see this suggest it to wildcard.
If you're grinding for something that requires a lot of thatch, don't bother with a pick. Use this boi. I was grinding for a stone battlement, and my Bronto was way faster to use. If you're wondering what I used I used a lvl 62 Theri, lvl 39 Dodic & a lvl 42 Bronto.
I sometimes wonder why the bronto only has a tail whip attack, I mean, just look at it, it’s huge, I think it should have a stomp attack, or an attack similar to the paracertherium (gets up on its hind legs and slams down on its front legs). It makes sense because of how big it is, it would also make the bronto, less boring, if anyone knows the ark discord can someone suggest this to them. Hopefully it becomes available across all platforms, especially console, pc and mobile.
Fun fact, these aren’t real dinosaurs! Not technically anyway… Palentoligist Othniel C. Marsh found the apatosaurus fossil in 1877, and well he found another fossil, naming it brontosaurus, although it was the same thing as an apatosaurus. So really this should be called an apatosaurus, NOT a brontosaurus.
This dino has a realy good use in the wild(only on pve servers) so if you want to break a base or structure just get a dino with lots of health and because its range is wide just make the dino stand near the base on pasive and the base will go down (as long the base is made out of thatch or wood or Adobe) oh and make sure the owner of the base is not online or hell kill the bronto.good luck breaking bases in pve!
Even though they're not Multi-passenger, their saddle is so dang big that you can drive, while your friends stand & chill behind you. Once you get a saddle for one, you and your friends can get up by: you mount it, then dismount. you'll still be on the saddle. You and your friends repeat until you're all on, then One of you drives, and off you go. If there's still mor of you and no room, get a diplo and now you all have seats. Please ^ if this was helpful!
So if you really want to grind metal in single player you should get a bronto get a platform saddle and spam its weight build a furnace room on top with everything you can, then tame an argy and anklo (if you don’t have one) then use the argy to pick up anklo and find a metal supply ise the anklo to get the metal then pick the anklo up and carry to the bronto platform saddle with the argy then smelt it in the metal base you made. Hope you like it if.
Bronto's are a beast! Make a platform saddle, have mortar and pestles on it, carry spoiled meat and you will make thousands of narcotics in no time! Also a great thatch gatherer, would definitely recommend taming the Bronto.
