The magmasaur will be Arks equivalent of long ranged artillery, being able to fire powerful blasts at long distances, but it is also effective at close range, having a Velonasaur stile AOE attack and doing damage to anything withing range just by existing. It is not however effective everywhere all the time, depending on biome, weather and temperature changes how strong its attack is, how much stamina and material is used and so on. In high temperatures and dry areas it does most, while cold and wet areas it does least. Lastly for convenience purposes it is also a portable forge and can swim in lava. Note:The magmasaur does damage to friendlies near it as well, only one who is safe is whoever is in the saddle, so this creature will need to be kept alone away from the base or in a separate pen.
