How to build A Dilophosaur Spit turret/ Sentinel Tower
What you will need: Rocks/ heavy surplus material, meat, Wooden structures or higher, Wood ramp, wood ladder, one dilophosaur
1. Put down a foundation for your tower
Begin building on a completed structure
2. Set up your first floor and build the walls and roof of the second(you will want a second foundation for the first option)
3. Set up your ladders
4. Place down your ramp
5. Set your dilo to its lowest following range and set it to follow you
6. Lead it up onto the second floor
7. Destroy and replace the ramp to the tower
8. Lead the dilo onto the tower
9. Tell the dilo to stop
10. Put the heavy material into its inventory with a mixture of meat to keep its health up
11. Change its behavior to agressive to medium/high range
You now have a tower that can spit poison or alert you of creatures getting close. If you have guard creatures, like pachyderms or some reptiles, they will be alerted and eliminate the threat.
Up this if you found this a helpful tutorial
Low on hide? Dont worry
Tame 2-4 of these make em aggressive and enable wandering they can also protect ur base
Up so everyone can see
Fists can easily knock a Dilo out. There spit can help you hunt or defend you from other survivors. In groups of 3 or more they are dangerous.
Put a bunch of stone on them and put them on your roof on aggressive and you have a spit turret
•ULTIMATE DILO GUIDE
•10-20 Raw meat.
•Only use bat if you have at least 120 health.
•Bola if you have access to it. (Not necessary, recommended.)
You will usually find these in packs, try to kill all the dilos nearby first, they will defend the one you try to tame.
Attack it by it's back, never stay nearby the head, they'll split poison at your face if you do.
(In case you are using a slingshot, headshot it, but try to dodge it's split, when it opens it's mouth and frills, it's about to split.)
(Use bola if you have it. Be aware that it can still split when trapped.)
Once knocked out, open the inventory. Put about 16 raw meat.
(Some of the raw meat isn't for taming, it's for feed.)
There, you have your own dilo.
Can hunt down stuff like dodos or compy packs for you. Be aware that it has fairly low damage and health, needs a pack to hunt bigger, agressive things.
CAN ALSO HUNT:
• Moschops (In pack)
•Parasaurs (In pack)
•Pachys (In 5+ dilo packs)
•High speed, can blind enemy.
Can hunt things like dodo •quickly.
•Will likely die to most dinos if not in pack.
•Fairly low health and damage.
Build storage boxes around them, if you don't have acess to storage boxes yet build a one by one thatch house. (Roof not necessary but recommended.)
Needs 3 campfires, putting torch on egg recommend.
Hatches fairly quick, put about 30 meat on baby's inventory.
Make sure to imprint.
PROTECTING YOUR DINO:
Make sure you have a base with spike walls around your base as soon as possible, A dilo can be killed by literally anything on passive mode. If you can't put them inside your thatch base.
Put 5-10 meat on each dilo's inventory, make sure to replace it every 2-4 days.
A good first defensive game. Their acid attack slows all dinosaurs and can be a lifesaver early to mid game.
They're cannon fodder, like the grunts in halo. They're weak and useless with just a couple but get a swarm of dilos and you'll be able to kill most dinos you encounter early game except for like rexes and spinos
Bring some meat and a club on adventures and take a few of these to protect you if you don’t want your better Dino’s to get hurt
Alone not very affective but I once had a group of 7 and they took out a carno with easy as well as other aggressive creatures
You can't ride Dilophasaurs, but they can carry goods for you
This is a very over looked tame. I have a pack of 10 and they were all tamed at 150s. Set them all on a lvl 105 rex to actually get them killed to decrease my tame cap. And they murdered the rex lol
