Here’s what I did in leveling up quickly.
1. Spawn in south zone 2.
2. Run to the east and you’ll find a swamp.
3. Lure sarcos and boas out of the swamp (make sure you don’t lure any kappas and don’t get bitten by the boas ok?)
4. Find a giant group of wild turtles and trikes.
5. Let them battle it out and kill one of the swamp creatures when it is low on health.
You can use this guy as a distraction whilst hunting raptors. Once I saw Raptors terrorizing near my base so I took my Carbo with me (Karen) and she attacked the pack of raptors while I caught the alpha raptor with a bola and killed it with my longneck and pistol. Karen was still alive by the time I went to help her out and all of them were focused on killing Karen so I threw a bola at all of them and killed them. Also if you want to invade a base with turrets take this dude and use their eggs to make kibbles to tame Brontosauruses so you can start you first tour de la ark
Immeasurable usefulness... It's criminal how easy to tame these are, they have high EVERYTHING except movement speed and okay damage.... They are sooo versatile..
1. Walking Talking armoured safe.
2. Damage soaking tank with decent return damage
3. Easy tanky amphibious saddle...
4. Frontline of attack and defense
They are just awesome and taming then is an easy ordeal... Unless you are taming a high level it's no task, just walk backwards while slingshotting... I never use trans they are wasted on them unless they are high level and you don't have all day. If they get too close just flank them and continue after gaining distance. Feeding them takes forever and high levels need narcotics however they spawn near beaches where you can collect lots of biotoxin so that's convenient... If you don't have about 100 mejoberries lying around get ready for some serious foraging but if you already have the berries it's just the waiting game...
If you are having trouble with Dino’s at the start and want to tame a Dino to help protect you but a trike is proving to be to hard just look for one of these turtles and then knock them out and if one is not enough get more. They can be like your living turtle wall to stop raptors and even spinos and rexes from just easily walking in and killing you before you can even run
These guys are the best at getting karitan if you dont want to look for one to kill just simply tame 2 of these guys the opposite gender and for the one you dont need to breed with simply kill it like the ovis for getting mutton. But this is for keritian. Sorry for bad English.
Can escape over railing
Please build 2 tall walls and also make them have no nearby structures here is how freedom: my female turtle got her name: after her 1st baby, who still has no name, she escaped my dino compound and crossed the river to where the raptors were. I got her back with no issues until about 1 minute later she had broken out.
When breeding tamed Carbonemys, they will try to wander off in opposite directions. I tried positioning them next to each other and overloading them past their weight limit to keep them still, but they refused to mate. You literally have to box them in to the point that they can't move.
The carbonemys is perhaps one of the best creatures to tame in the early game, and provides decent protection against dilos and lone raptors. The carbonemys can easily be knocked out with a slingshot, and even a survivor with base movement speed can outrun one, making it one of the easiest tames for the early game. Not only can it carry a lot, it can be used a bait for taming (or escaping) big carnivores that would love to eat you and you (amazing pink dodo) for a snack.
Amazing for early game
Can carry lots of stuff
An easy source of meat, keratin, hide, and XP for early game players
Really slow on land
Gets stuck on stuff a lot
Makes annoying wailing noises all the time
