Think of your favorite tame... that was cute. Introducing you to your new favorite tame, GOD... I mean megatherium. Sorry, with one kill of a bug they are very hard to tell apart. You remember waking up on the beach naked and running away from those drones? Yeah, now they will have nightmares of a big ass sloth frothing at the mouth for their demise. Giga making you worry next door? Nothing a Megatherium or 20 and some bug crack can’t fix. I promise you getting one of these changed my life. Collects Chiton pretty good I guess. If pretty good is you throwing out 16K cause you’re slot capped. Your future daughter will call this tame daddy, if you already have a daughter... you should have had a son.
THIS DUDE IS LITERALLY A THERI ON CRACK its attacks have wider area damage then a theri, its faster then a theri, it does more damage then a theri, it collects fiber with the default attack, it excels in collecting thatch, chitin, and it has bug buff
It's great at collecting berries, fiber and chitin from insects/bugs. He also doesn't collect charcoal from the burnt trees near the volcano in ragnarok anymore. Great for fighting broodmother and doing artifact runs on the island and caves that are filled with insects. Definitely worth taming
Absolute godsend for meat runs in caves. Only things that'll aggro up on it are Pirhana, Megalania and (presumably) Megalosaurus. Otherwise, everything else (including Arthropleura and Sarcos) won't aggro. Have at 'em!
Good against the broodmother,because of their boost against bugs.(if they kill a bug they get a boost that basically makes them the strongest Dino in ark.)Breeding them is also really easy because they give you a baby instantly and don't drop an egg, which saves a bit of time.
He is basically the incarnation of a gorilla god if he gets his hand on any bug. He will obliterate any who stand before him and rip the chitin from your very soul. Cause if you didn’t have chitin before now be prepared to have to much of it. The only downside of this literal demy god is that it’s hard to get his fat furry ass anywhere cause he is humungous.
In my opinion one of the best land mounts in the game, slow turn radius and sprint speed are its only cons, great base health and damage, amazing base carry weight and good stamina make this my taming mount, at 4K health it can tank a Spino while I tranq it still riding which just sold it for me. It can gather berries well enough and it’s bug killer buff makes it a force to be reckoned with around any area with bugs or scorpions
Go out of your way to tame this thing, a high level mega is my go to land mount now
You never know what you've got until it's gone. Actually I knew exactly what I had and that was my mega. The BEST at gathering chitlin or keratin. I'd take him to a spot with a lot of bugs and after 2 mins I'd have stacks and stacks of chit/keratin. I left him on a boat while I took my argys to get some obsidian real fast and ended up running into 3 spinos. Took a while to kill 2 and tame the 3rd while fending off tickle chickens then on the way back I found a gigantithicus or whatever the sasquatch is and followed him around shoving berries in his ass until he was tamed and by the time I got back to my raft base with the spino and harry my mega was dead..... I've spent 2 days looking for another and can't find one. I saw them ALL THE TIME until I'm looking for one lol.
