Dilos are easy to encounter and they make great bodyguards!
To tame one, knock it out(u will need to dodge venom) and then feed it about 15 meat. Taming only takes about a minute so u can have a good defence against raptors! My team has 3 dilos in it 1 parasaur and 1 pteradon and the dilos did most of the work defending against raptors!
Please have your following distants at low or medium because if it’s at high or higher your Dino will not follow you for a long time and if it’s at lowest your Dino will follow you even wen you move just a little
Just bash it over the head with a club as long as its not high level if you're a fresh character. Then just feed it a couple dodos worth of meat (bring more just in case) and it'll be the easiest carnivore to tame and its insanely good if you have a pack of them early game.
They can’t equip saddles, but are awesome predators! My 3 Dilo’s (died after a pack of allosaurus attack) killed a lvl 3 Sarco outside my base without me knowing! And they are good guards :D just get a bunch, put them on aggressive wandering in front of somebodies base in PVP, and enjoy that newbie get wrecked
If you encounter a dilophosaurus early in game and want to kill it for resources such as meat then use a bow & arrow at medium range and spam stone axe during combat since spamming causes fast knockbacks that makes it difficult for the creature to attack you
To tame a dilo first find one then if you’re worried that it is going to eat you use a slingshot to knock it out then feed it some raw meat And then you have a dilo. Silos do not have a saddle but they spit at Enemeies to slow them plus them can carry items for you
Here’s some tips for my fellow noobs!
You will encounter these guys. It’s impossible to not see them at least once in the few days after you start the game. If you’re like me and want to avoid them, listen. I mean literally. They make a sort of chittering noise, very different from dodos. Listening to the world around me has saved my butt too many times.
If you want to fight one, wait until you have an axe and have upped your health and damage some. They’re easy kills if you sprint at em from behind and spam the axe. If you see them flash their frill, get to the side. When they flash the frill it means they’re going to spit.
Similar strategy for taming, but instead of an axe use a club. Toss some raw meat into their inventory and keep some narco berries on hand juuuust in case. They tame very quick.
At high levels they are amazing defenders and distractors, though I’d use carbonemys for distracting. They’re also very moveable thanks to their size.
