On scorched earth take a vulture on attacking your target and put it on your shoulder and kill the paracer let ur vulture harvest the paracer. It gathers prime and its easy to cook because it stays fresh long. Easy prime meat for begginer tribes.
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
