A must tame because they are a mid-game mount and usually platform mounts are mid to late-game. So be sure to tame one but note: They run out of stamina pretty fast so I suggest you pump stamina into it.
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
Just so you know my bronto and I accidentally hit 2 of these my bronto got absolutely wrecked but why do when your mount dies with you on it why does it literally throw you off I died due to that other then that I woulda been fine so do not mess with these 2 in gensis they did more damage to my bronto then my bronto did to them. weird right?
