Personally, I keep a pack of lv 100+ Dilos that are my alpha squad. An easy and cheap way to take care of alpha raptors. My squad can take anything up to lv 90.
They can open and close doors even if a different person’s door!
These are great if you want to raid something
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
You can't ride them, you can't use ANY acccessories on them, they can't carry much, and they don't deal much damage. I wish ark could give them a meatpack or something, like how dodos have decimation bit and gathering bit.
If you weigh them down you can make them a spitting turret they will probably get killed from stuff as there low HP So make sure to level that before
But really they won’t survive long
A good first defensive game. Their acid attack slows all dinosaurs and can be a lifesaver early to mid game.
Put heavy things into its inventory and there you go, a poison spitting turret
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
I tame one then level up he attack and hp..now he can kill raptor
