Magmasaur is able to destroy ALL STRUCTURES utilizing its searing spit. While it is a walking forge it produces metal at the same rate as a refining forge. You can use the jump button to taunt other creatures and when holding searing spit use crouch to erupt. (This attack pushes creatures back and leaves magma everywhere) it is breedable in lava. Hope this helped
Get one of these, they harvest everything in abundant quantities.
Want to build? Bring your thatch and start harvesting.
Want metal to trade with other tribes? Get a Magmasaur. They tend to get metal out of any source of stone or metal node anywhere, and better than an Anky... and I have 900 mêlée Ankys, and I would still use a Magmasaur.
And they are FAST while they harvest. They sprint around like nothing.
Eat a Dino that drops raw prime and you need it cooked right now? “Enable Smelting”. Your prime will be cooked.
Your Magmasaur is low on food? Force feed it stone. Works better than meat to fill its food.
Want to tame a basilisk? Breed your magmasaurs and use the fertilized eggs to tame a basilisk. Then have your new basilisk follow you and carry your junk, just level weight.
Want to survive inside the volcano on Genesis during an eruption? Mount your Magmasaur and don’t get out of the saddle until the eruption is over. It’ll kill your shoulder pet, though.
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.
If you are planning on doing a hunt use the magma with a acendent saddle if you do not have one go to the bogbeatdown mission on gamma (obviously in the bog) and you can get one very easily also remember to grab alot of ambergriss because it heals massive amounts of health per piece with no cool down. If this help is so other can see
Magmasaurs will eat stone, it fills up way more food than raw meat or raw prime meat. They dont usually eat it so you have to force feed them, they can also eat crystal but i find stone much better. I think more people should know this.
Magmasaurs are phenomenal metal.and stone gatherers, but also really good crystal and obsidian gatherers too. Doesn't seem to be mentioned often. They can gather oil from oil rocks as well, but cannot gather ambergris or element shards.
