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!!🥺🥺😞😞
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.
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).
So I had a carno named corn it was a she, so one day I was killing a trike after we killed a lvl 200 Rex came up behind us and even though corn was lvl 210 she was killed well I saved her! I pulled out a longneck rifle and shot him in the head with traq he argoed onto me and I ran up a cliff that he couldn’t get up and my carno, corn ran up with me guarding me from raptors and dilos while I shot the Rex until he was finally knocked out. So we were guarding it and I got off to feed it narcotics (hehe bad idea) and a raptor pounced on me and my carno attacked it but a whole pack of them jumped out and attacked corn and she died I killed them all and got her implant and I put in the Rex that got up minutes later. So I put on a saddle and went home and I had enough amber to revive her so I did and I was so happy to see her!
Very useful mid-late game, I have a carno lvl 218 with 4 raptors lvl 180+ and they can escort me anywhere. They kill Rex's like is no big deal. The only thing we can't defeat are titans. The day will come......
Wanted to write this for a year but never got around to it. While riding your carno, you are still prone to getting knocked off it by a wild Raptors pounce attack. Not sure how it's possible, but I found out the hard way.
I have a little story. So I'm exploring with my iguanadon and I get swarmed by a pack of Raptors. Of course I left the thing on passive flee so it gets destroyed and I die. I'm like whatever and go get my other iguanadon. It doesn't stand a chance. I'm throughly pissed so just grab my carno (who I dont like, they look dumb as hell) and go to get my stuff. It killed many dilos, chompies, Raptors and a thezanisaurus. The thing is a beast. 10/10 would recommend for protection
I have a 168 Carno that's a literal beast, it goes against practically everything I throw against it, kills Low level Brontos EASILY, and that's with a mere 150% Attack, I use it as an overall mount that is helpful as a guard dog. Take one and have fun! :)
