ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
What is a diplodocus used for? diplodocus battling strategies in ARK: Survival Evolved.
Good tanks for raids! Use as a frontline attack in front of Brontos or Gigas etc, can push tames back when attacking so you can use this for defence too. Their high speed allows you to run from turrets when on low health. Worth it when passive tamed as the low kib needed means you can tame more.
transport for large tribes with large terrritories over large grassland, runs fast and is easy to tame. its saddle can carry plenty of tribemates and they can carry descent weight, but they are terrible in terms of offense as they only give a forceful push, but if you push enemy's of a cliff that would be more effective, overall rated a 5.2 for me, mobile and conveniant, but lacking in other aspects.
This dinosaur is like a mini bronto, which is faster, easier to tame and more better. A bronto takes forever to turn around and are veeeeery slow. A diplo is pretty fast, I don’t think it’s faster than a raptor, but still pretty fast, and it has a big weight capacity, so you can transport your goods with this dino. I do short reviews on other herbivores please up
Jurassic Bio: Diplodocus
Name means: Double Beam
Period: Late Jurassic
Description: Diplodocus was the 2nd longest dinosaur in history (1st was memenchisaurus). Unlike its relative, Brachiosaurus, it stood completely horizontally. It likely would’ve used its whip like tail as a weapon against predators.

Ok so my feelings on this animal: I absolutely love this creature. So fast that any creatures prone to going aggro on us never even see us because of how fast we are going. Also super helpful in carrying loads of heavy stuff and plenty of stamina my only issue is I have the same feelings about the fact that the diplo shall be able to defend his or herself with the tail when stuck cornered and being attacked multiple times if you’re stuck at the moment and need a hot minute to get unstuck and flee. So I agree with other players who feel the same way. Being attacked by a bunch of stupid mean insects or a dilo or compys leaves you with no choice but to flee on your diplo. That’s good because diplo is fast but then you got to come back through the area to complete what you’re were working on such as taming a creature in the area or collecting something and then you get attacked again and that’s not good. So yea super annoying and have to go through the work of destroying the meanies by shooting them off or hitting them with my pick or spear. Other than that diplo is awesome has lots of health and stamina and speed and ability to carry loads of heavy stuff. For now I’ll just be grateful that the best defense is to run away cos they are fast and at least can nudge the meanies away over and over till the meanies are destroyed. The end.
Don't underestimate this dino's usefulness. It may not do damage but it's knock back is very useful for holding off raiders. If your base is near a cliff you can knock players and dinos off it. Another thing is that diplos actually do trample damage. This means that it can kill small creatures like bugs, dodos, and compies by walking in them. In addition there is no level requisite to tame it, so it colud be the first dino you tame.
Since these big teddy bears can't really defend themselves tame a couple of little birds mount the diplo whistle for group follow. Then turn thier group whistles off (so they don't leave) and put the follow (so the don't get in the way) and attack range better at high. They will then stay with the diplo at all times protecting it.
