Can be found in Carno island cave, south west lava cave, south east cave near Stonehenge, Central cave near volcano, and possibly others. They are very rare spawns but if checked regularly you can encounter them if looking to tame.
Imo one of the hardest tames in Ark, especially on the island (he is 3 times on the map to the same time and possible spawns are upper and lower south cave, central cave, carno cave and lava cave and he is very hard to see because he sleeps during the day)…but he is really worth every second of taming, my personally favorite…
If you find one be prepared that you just get him out of 2 caves on the island (lower south and central cave or you tame 2 in the others and breed an egg) or maybe through glitches
For fighting: knock him out when night starts, sounds stupid because he is much stronger then…but if you use a grappling hook on he spot where he can’t attack you…you can knock him out easily...the good thing is that he sleeps through the morning till it gets night again, so he won’t wake up that fast and maybe you just need to shoot him down for one time...but if you knock him out during day, be prepared to knock him out again when it becomes night again…good luck survivor! :-)
When out at night, be sure to take this with a raft or quetzal with platform, so when it is tired, you can get it back to base without it being attacked. Just a tip to ensure that your prized Megalosaurus doesn't die whilst you are out.
Imo the most underestimated creature (only use him during night) great for farming leather, great dps, great meat and prime meat farmer and very funny to grab other creatures with rightclick and eat them very fast...give this dinosaur an own TV show
When raising one from an egg it is best to have it on follow that way when you're feeding it it will not sleep it will go unconscious but you can continue to feed it while it's unconscious and when it wakes up it repeats the whole process over again because if it falls asleep and you feed it you'll notice your food goes down so fast this is my best way to raise a BABY
