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.
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.
When attacking one, all dimprpodons in the area will attack you along with the one you attacked. When this happens, it is best to just take a weapon such as a pike and repeatedly stab the air. You will hit them as they fly by to attack you. Also, be careful even when you are on a mounted dino. They can attack the player while it is still on the dino, and can kill you. This happened to me as well; even though I was on a rex, a swarm of dimorphodons killed me while I was on the saddle. Luckily I was close to my base so I could just respawn and get my stuff back. However, you should still be careful about accidentally attacking on of these. Others can come out of seemingly nowhere.
I laugh when I read about people freaking out over dimorphodons on mobile because they accidentally stepped on one and have 25+ of them come after them. I have stepped on these buggers so many times I lost count. However there is a way to live if you do step on one and a swarm comes for you. All you need to do is have a large such as a therizinosaurs,bronto,rex,giga,etc. Stay in one place preferably on a rock or such where you have higher ground. Then just start attacking them continuously without moving from that spot. You will begin to see their bodies shoot off like baseballs. This is the fun lovable sport called dimorph ball.
So if your landing and you see a turtle or para you wanna attack. Watch out to see if there are any of these guys. One time I was resting my argy and I decided to attack a turtle. I killed the turtle and I must of hit one of these and when I was about to take off I saw about 20 dimorph’s coming at me. Lesson:Don’t hit a dimorph
Whatever you do, DO NOT piss these things off when you have low level dinos. You accidentally hit one while attacking something else, and 6 more will pop out of nowhere, and swarm you-killing 2 mid level pteranodons, your FIRST 2 EVER Argies, and leaving you 300 metal and crystal in the negative.
The most efficient way to kill them are using some stegosaurus which can easily hit many ate one blow u can also use a basilisk or a bronto . However these are very good tames and and can easily kill big animals if u tame 4 or 5 of them
When I first started playing I saw one and was like, “hey, this thing it small. It should be easy to nock out and take.” About 15 had gang up on me by the time I got to my bace. Tip for new players: DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THESE THINGS. And be careful not to pick up an egg by accident, too.
Early on don't attack them. I made a huge mistake with my first Pternadon and the circled each other and kept going up. Soon I couldn't even see them but I don't have a death message. They're still circling each other
