I was trying to tame a dodo and built the gate trap too close to base. When I shot it with the first dart it went crazy and destroyed half our base. We lost a Rex in the chaos that followed. When attempting to tame this build the trap as far from base as possible.
Imagine A chicken on steroids this thing will lay around 25-50 eggs every hour and that's about all it's good for. A must have for any tribes looking to take to the sky however, as their eggs make getting a Ptera much easier.
People are constantly saying that dodos have no purpose besides eggs and umm... fertilizer. I completely disagree! I live on a houseboat and travel all over the oceans and dodos are (in my opinion) are some of the best companions on the ark, especially since their small size makes the good for people with small bases or like me, boats
Dodos are incredibly hard to tame, when taming one make sure you have at least 100 darts, as soon as you hit it it will flee at an incredible 0.01 meters an hour! Once knocked out you will need over 50 mejoberries to tame!! It should take around 5 hours to tame.
They can be used as livestock since they lay so many eggs, you could survive off their eggs alone if you have enough of them. You can aldo use a sick dodo to get enemy survivors sick by dropping it in their camp, this'll weaken the enemy's combat stats
Dodos are very useful creatures throughout the entire
game. In early game, they can serve as companionship or possibly can be bait with some tripwire setups. In mid-game, the are egg-squirting machines, great for kibble and oviraptor taming. Remember to use stims! In endgame, their main uses are pvp. They can transmit swamp fever, and are golden for C4 cluster drops. If you really want to though, they are the easiest dinos to breed and imprint on. Hope this tip helped!
