I've developed a method for taking out these beasties whilst you (and, hopefully, the carno) are still in the lower levels. Grab yourself a bow and a few handfuls of tranq arrows, and then play a game of 'catch me if you can' with your foe. (Hopping up on rocks, running in a zig-zag pattern, and taking advantage of tree trunks works well for me.) As you're running and dodging, lob as many arrows as you can into the beastie's snout. Fair warning: you're going to get bit. But a dozen or so arrows later, the tables will turn, and the Carno will attempt to make a run for it. At this point, just trail behind and wait for them to drop. Voila! Either dispatch or domesticate the fallen fiend. I don't know how many I've ended in this fashion, but enough to have faith in the functionality. The highest level Carno that I've taken out with this sprint-and-shoot method was only about a 30, however. Of course, this'll become redundant once you become powerful enough to take one head-on.
I didn't know about anyone else but be careful. My first encounter way by a river and one of these game out of the woods and attacked my Parasaur at same time a raptor worked with it and took me off my mount and killed me. Never thought I'd see two different species work together.
If ur on a single player use another controller and make it split screen use that to be a bait pump the health and make it a bait whe ur player tranq it just make sure that it get aggro on the bait player which is the second controller player ;)
I hate these things more than I hate taxes. Get movement speed to a solid 134%. I've found that you can out run them with that. If you're in red wood run to a dire bear for safety even if it's wild just don't go too close. I've never seen a carno kill a bear. Collect the carno's prime after this and enjoy ;).
If u ever run into one in the wild just sprint toward the nearest river dive in and attack the carno feet’s and u will be good. You should be fine killing it quick enough underwater with a metal hatchet or pike. 👍
WILD Carnos are just 0.5 units faster than a player with no points in speed, 892 vs. 892.5
If you have one point in movement speed, you should just be able to outrun wild Carnos, but don't count on it.
For killing the alpha:There is a height in which you can hit it with your flight without being noticed even.My Lv80 Argent with 1500 stamina can easily kill one with several turns of rest and attack.Also valid on alpha raptors.INVALID on alpha rexes.They are so fast and their attack radius is huuuuuuuuuge so their is almost no way you hit it without being re-attacked.
I tamed one of these guys on craggs island, they are quite good tames even without a saddle because they take on just about everything and their horns are natural sunglasses so they can fight in the summer!
One attacked me while I was taming a baryonyx. I was able to take it out with a crossbow and pike, but If your any lower level than that you better run around other dinos and hope you have enough stamina.
