These guys are great for scorched earth players if you need to build adobe bases or get lots of cementing paste for metal structures. They are also good for taming because you can make narcs in their inventory and lassos.
This creature is a pain to tame but worth it. When I first got it I was like “Now, what in the world am I going to do with this?” Then I realized, it is great for knocking out wild Dino’s if you are short on tranq arrows (knocked out a lvl 120 sarco with 3 back kicks). It is also good for a mobile narcotic maker. Just put some rotten meat in this bad boy and run around getting narcoberries and use it’s saddle to make all the narcotics you want. Bam!!! Then you got all the taming supplies you need to go get some other Dino’s.
These guys are good starter tames in ark because you dont need a saddle to ride 1 also if it's a high level like level 100 tame it they have good hp, weight, stamina etc. Also if you encumbered you can ride this guy and put your stuff I'm him
If you play without flying, this thing is a must have. Decent weight, almost no stamina consumption while sprinting, reduced fall damage and imprinted ones are really fast. The Buck Kick (L2 on PS4) is really good forknocking out creatures. And don't forget that this things saddle is a mortar and pestle, so you can grind those sweet narcotic XP while traveling. This is my go to mount.
