When you are a new survivor these thing’s are great because when these things attack a creature they won’t harvest it making that you can come in and harvest the dead creature and get some hide and they won’t agro to you.
Relatively easy to kill in the wild and with the new update they can drop electronics, Element Dust, Scrap Metal, and Oil, just like Enforcers and Tek creatures. Gives another safe way to gather Element Dust.
With a metal pick or hatchet you get element dust electronics scrap metal (can be melted in refining forge and turned into scrap metal ingot which is used as a metal ingot) and oil I usually get about 20 of each material
If you just spawned on extinction with no tames and see one, stay nearby for a bit. No threats cus it will kill them for u. Can’t tame anything near them tho or be near with a tame, they will just kill it. But when you just spawned they can keep u safe
