This isn’t really a tip but I had this dimorphodon named Eagle who was super quirky and occasionally killed things that tried to kill me from compys to allos. On day a theri wandered onto my wooden base and guess what happened. 20 of my BEST tames were slaughtered along with my best Iguanodon for travel. Eagle tried to put a stop to it but was killed in the process. All my other creatures were passive. There wasn’t even an implant to revive her with. D: I was so filled with rage, I trapped it and killed it slowly and painfully with my lvl 131 dodo. Rule? Kill and aggressive creatures before they kill ur pets. Press the up arrows if you agree.
Best tame for the time and narcotics. I have about 20 of these above lvl 200 defend my base.. They shred people along with my turrets. I also raid with 10+ of them. They make shooting at me impossible as they swarm people not their mounts. Use the spyglass to scope dinos or people and whistle attack target. It is an invaluable sniper tool.
P.S. Keep them close to your fabricator and smithy to level faster.
These little creatures are amazing for clearing caves just get about 20 of them drag them into a cave and watch them work you need to pay attention to there hp though there strength is in numbers so individuals can die
I went to raid a base with 4 buddies, a rex, 3 carnos, and a bronto with a platform saddle and cannons. All we heard was a whistle and i swear about 50 of these little devil's swarmed the whole group, killing everyone in the group and one carno, the turrets shredded everything else, but the rex must have ran off and we never got a death message so its still out there in the jungle.
I had a pack of 15, roughly level 220+ mostly second generation beasts. All at 2500ish health and 300+% melee damage. They'd kill wild 150 rexes and brontos in a couple seconds. They're all now rip when I thought they'd work on a level 15 giga... woops.
When in areas that have many dimorphadon remember to be careful and not to hit one by accident when fighting other creatures as you can easily be overwhelmed.your mount will not be able to save you as they deal damage directly to the rider.
These little guys are great for base Defence. The first technique I mostly only use to defend against quetzals is strapping C4 to a low level dimorph, then whistle him to attack the quetz, and trigger the C-4. Just as he's closing in to bite the quetz. You might need four or five of these guys to down the quetz, but if you ask me, 5 10 minute tames are worth it for a game that probably took the opposition a few hours to tame. Another technique like to use to take out rexes gigas, and other tanky dinos, is go around, behind them with a swarm of dimorphs (don't do this against Brontos or any Dino with a huge AoE attack) Then whistle attack (which is ".") on the rider. They will shred through him so fast, he won't know what even happened. After the rider is off, you can easily trap the giga in a large bear trap, kite it off a cliff (or away from your base) or just kill it, when the Dino doesn't have a rider, it sacrifices attack speed which is a very vital part of PvP.
