On Scorched Earth the Paracer with its platform saddle is a needed tame. You can put a cannon on it and use it for taming Rock Elementals or use its high weight and health for carrying large loads of supplies around through dangerous areas.
Ok, so I just tamed two of these. (I live in the swamp/Redwoods) So, I’m just living my life, and an Alpha Carno just comes out of nowhere?? He just kinda,,, appeared. And I was really stressed out cause I thought I was gonna lose everything, but my paracers came through! They had the Carno down in less than a minute. I would definitely recommend these things to mid-level players like me, especially since they’re not hard to tame at all! (Sorry it’s so long, I got excited)
I use my paracer as my cargo transport dino for short to mid distance. I use it to go to the redwood nearby and gather MASSIVE amounts of metal. Just hop off, get the metal, load up the paracer, then get back home. They can defend themselves quite effectively
