They're great for acting as bodyguards when you go to possibly dangerous areas, and for hunting since their spit slows animals down. Once I had 2 of mine attack a Carno while I shot at it, both survived and killed the carno.
They make a distinct aggro sound when they lock onto you, keep this in mind when one is nearby. They are easily outrun and with very little practice you can avoid their arcing acid attack. Spears/arrows to he head are very effective
I love thse little fuzzballs soooooo much! I ahve over 30 of these little guys and they make great guard dogs. Mine are all about level 70 at the moment as i haven't had a chance to level them up but i mostly pump on health, some melee damage as well but I take them out hunting when I'm riding my therzin and they take things out pretty quick. So id reccomed them. Love my little babies <3
