After the TLC, Carnotaurus has become not only a more powerful mount but also a very dangerous encounter especially with their Yutyrannus leaders. The secondary attack causes a nasty bleed effect that drains the targets' health significantly. This paired with the significant knockback can easily kill many creatures with high health pools such as brontos and stegos. A fully imprinted, mate-boosted and mutated pack of carnos are a force to be reckoned with and can even take out Alpha Rexes.
This is one of the easiest to tame dangerous creatures and one of the more helpful carnivores in the game. It has speed to chase down fast herbivores, it’s a great prime meat gatherer, and it has an easy and quick kibble for powerful creatures like dire wolves. Definitely a good choice for a person taming their first dangerous dinosaur.
Tamed carnos are excellent almost all around: their health, attack speed, and base damage allow you to take on most of the creatures on the island, including Rexes and Alpha Raptors. Having a mated pair greatly strengthens this quality. They run fairly fast and can carry a lot, making great transport mounts. They are a fairly good harvester of meat and prime meat.
Their only real disadvantage is a slow stamina regen, even when stood completely still.
It is sad to see the Carno for not getting too much love these days. Whenever I try to find mutated Carno videos, it only shows a few of them before showing off Rex, Thyla, basically everything else except the Carno, and I'm disappointed. Carnos are basically a nerfed apex predator. They have the power and health you would expect while being speedy as well. They are not too difficult to tame, just a simple knock out tame. Even though a TLC could spice things up a bit, I love it for what it is.
DEFINITELY a creature you need for early to mid game. I have a level 173 female that was tamed at level 100, it gained 40 levels so the 33 levels were me leveling it. I put a decent amount of attack and got her to 4000 hp. She makes quick work of EVERYTHING, I've taken on 4 different alpha raptors (not at the same time), she makes quick work of rexes, brontos, and like I said, alpha raptors. There is an alpha rex kinda sorta near my base in the forgotten lakes, imma try and kill it tmm😜and also, be careful around the forgotten lakes, raptors, therizinosaurs, and alpha raptors will spawn near by. you all think the creator of this app should add a section for good base spots and stuff of that sort.
