I wish there was like an attachment like a camera or something attached to a tamed compy’s back. And you can control it and look around through the camera while using the compy to run around and look. I think that is a good way to scout a tribe I wish there was something like this in the game. The camera needs gasoline to be activated just needs to be put in the compy’s inventory.
For practical uses that is. Compy’s are the housecats of ark. Tame one and set it on wander inside your house and you have endless companionship. It’s dumb, and really impractical seeing as you probably have tons of other games to keep you company, but it’s still nice to see a tiny little dinosaur run around your home.
I tamed one and put her in my house to be my emotional support compy. Basically, whenever I die and lose all my stuff/one of my tames, she’ll be right there to cheer me up! I know they’re not very useful, but I love compys
They're good to have in packs and are worth the prime meat despite people calling them useless. Get enough of these buggers and you'll be unstoppable, well unless you encounter a dodo those end game creatures will end your army instantly.
Breeding a high level compy army is a waste of your time so taming a metric f*ck ton is the way to go. Riding a slower animal while surrounded by your army feels pretty awesome and it's hilarious to whistle attack target on whatever irritates you.
While many say the humble compsognathus is a useless creature,
This could actually not be further from the truth!
They have the strange ability to get much more meat from animals than most creatures their size, this coupled with with their portability makes them ideal taming companions before cryopods are available.
They also can be incredibly powerful in swarms, some have said they can kill an allo with about fourty, couple twenty complies with five of their aerial counterpart the dimorphodon, and you have a brilliant combat group capable of taking down almost anything.
-Meso throw poop at targets, slowing them down, like a cheap bola. That attack can also be useful for battles and PvP.
-Otters Insulate you, keeping you warm, or keeping you cool.
-Dimorphs Can act as a last ditch effort to save a tame from a creature, distracting it, until you can come in with backup. They are also good fighters, and decent for PvP.
-Archa can act as a parachute, also letting you glide to get places on foot faster, (e.g across your base, to a bush/tree etc.)
- Jerboa can predict the weather with noises.
- Pego can steal from players, have the invisible glitch, and act in a similar manner to Dimorphs. Not as good attack though.
But these?!? No Use! Horrible at PvP, bad attack, trash health, AND THEY NEED FLIPPING PRIME TO TAME! If they need prime to tame, they should at least have a use. They're nice to see run around in your home though... Anyway, these are so bad, they should have a use.
