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.
I was playing on my Mobile ARK, and I had a carno I named Bruce Wayne. Whenever I needed prime meat, he was there. When I was out grinding, he was there. When I fought rex’s, therizino’s, and even alpha’s, he was there. Life was beautiful. Until the day I went for the artifacts. I took him to the Middle Passage Cave. We got to the Artifact relatively quick. But by then it was night and the whole cave was awake and ticked. Rushed out the cave we went, but soon we were surrounded. B.Y. fought to his last breath, but was subdued by the onslaught, with his last action being tossing me off his back out of harms way! His scream of perish meant infuriated me enough to kills ALL cave citizen near me. I later took care of the Artifact of the Clever, but never forgot that Caron’s sacrifice! RIP: BRUCE WAYNE
My Deceased Brother in Arms. Amen!!🥺🥺😞😞
Carnos are probably the best thing to take with you to go Alpha hunting if you have no rexs yet. Their strong and quick primary attack can rival an Alpha Carno at only level 10(proven by personal experience)! Also, their relatively high torpor allows them to fight for a while if the opponent has high health( Alphas, Brontos, Rexs, Therizino’s, etc).
