Extremely good starter tame. Having even one makes life on the ARK so much easier, and a group of 3 or more is more dangerous than it seems. And once past its prime, they work really well as guard dogs.
Want to make your base area safer? Tame everyone of these you see and put them on aggressive and wander and just let em go wild
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
•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.
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
I have an army of 12 of these babies. It’s epic. Highly recommend
A good first defensive game. Their acid attack slows all dinosaurs and can be a lifesaver early to mid game.
If anyones wondering how to get baby dilos put them on enabled wandering when you stuff then in a pen then wait and get the eggs put them by a campfire and wait then take care of it till adulthood
Hope this was helpful
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
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.
