ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
Must tame!Scorched earth jack of all trades!gathers cactus sap,(a great food),berries,is tanky,and does a lot of damage to creatures,great for defending against raptors,my level 90 morrellatops protects against all raptors coming my way and has 1356 health,please like so beginner desert dwellers can see
In a group they attack, individual they run. Pick the lone wolf and lead it by facing the way you want it to go and trap it against a wall or rock or a safe place. No missed shots, no wasted resources, and a easy Morrelatops tame.
It gathers a lot more cactus sap from the tiny cactus plants ( the ones you harvest by hand)
On console these things are a nightmare to chase down, so I good trap is some wood billboards, much like you would use for a maewing
Good at harvesting berries, WOOD, thatch and cactus sap. To harvest wood, you need to look for the bushes that look like tiny pine trees. Attack those and you will get about 80-120 wood. Hardly on par with a beaver but much better than looking for trees in the desert.
It can easily kill carnos, sabers and wolves of a lower level in a 1 on 1 as the primary attack has a knock back effect, similar to a trike in the island. The secondary attack is a stomp with an AoE effect. They have decent health and good carry weight and you can drink water from their hump. To fill the water, take it to a well, use carriables or harvest cacti with it.
Very good all round dino, especially early game.
Only drawbacks are speed and stamina.
This thing is the god of scorched earth beginners. Easy to tame, can hold 750 water, decent at combat and great berry collecter.
So when these guys are in a group they will fight back if they are aggroed but if they are by themselves they will run in fear
If you read the shots until flea it says 1 but that’s only if they’re alone, if they have friends they WILL attack and can easily kill you and any weak tames.
Tame a low level with a boomerang at the beginning of scorched earth, that's when you start to progress
Scorched earth walking water keg.
The water inside them does not evaporate, so if you have several tamed you can refill and keep tons of water with you.
They are also one of the best tames for gathering cactus sap as well as berries.(I'm talking about you narco berries)
Not a fighter as it is a plant eater, but easy to feed(any berries will do). Also, sweet veggie cakes heal great.
The best part about these guys is the ease with which to find them, way better than a parasaur on scorched earth.
Sadly the downside, they are mostly pointless on other maps.
I knocked one out, but I couldn’t access it’s inventory!
