Remember that it has to go to sleep from time to time so don’t go into a raid or massive fight with it until you check the time when it needs to sleep you can let it sleep whenever you want so you don’t have to always wait for the timer
These guys are a must-have in Aberration; they are always awake (at least in the bioluminescent area), and thus always have their night buff. Of course, this also means you must always be wary of wild ones while in their territory.
The devs should add a command for singleplayers that the Megalosaurus can grab creatures on it‘s own without attacking them so the player can knock the dinosaur out easily in front of him (through a command like turret mode on the chalicotherium)
A level 1 Mega can rip a level 1 Rex to shreds during the night with over 60% of its health remaining, so I don’t know what you people are talking about when you say that it’s power is EQUAL to a Rex. It is clearly superior.
This guy is only usful at night if he wakes up on day time he gets a stat affect groggy it makes his stats down by some notches I learnt that the hard way only use at night they fall back to sleep after a while
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! :-)
