When wild they are a pest, they steal your stuff and murder your tames.
But when tamed, they are amazing, have a pego, set it on somebody, it will then steal whatever is in their last hotbar slot, if they have nothing it will take a random item.
Better still, tame a whole army, they will Rob your victim of literally everything, berry seeds, superior kibble, guns, broken pickaxes, cryopodded pets, saddles, life, their job. . .
Nothing is safe from a pego army. . .
You can pick what it steal so as a shoulder mount so when I put it on eggs I lost it so when it came back with an army of angry Dino’s and a Wyvern and now my main base is fifty percent destroyed but I have a wyvern 🔼 for info
This is the ultimate combo. Pego, troodons and seagulls
If you want to loot a guy without leaving a trace , here is how you do it.
1: pego problems, send a squadron of pegos to pick pocket your target just to piss them off.
2: seagull stealing, next send your seagull fleet to steal their items while they are chasing the pegos. If you are lucky, the seagulls will take the item they are using or the ammunition for the item
3: troodon terror, lastly, so they don’t know what happened, send your troodons to put them to sleep with their venom attack, they won’t know what hit them and you will walk away with all of their loot, if you are feeling like they have more stuff on them, grab narcotics and put them to sleep even more, then search his body. And boom free loot for the minimal price of lost tames. Hope this helps you pick pocket the alpha tribe!
The funniest thing in life happened today. I was on my raptor near my tribe's base and this guy came up to me and STOLE my berries and at the same moment I pounced with my raptor and it said YOU HAVE TAMED A PEGOMASTAX LEVEL 59 and I was in shock for a second. Then I named her Peggy Carter and brought her everywhere 🤣
These little buggers are annoying until you realise that they are an easy and efficient way of getting early game simple kibble. So go out gather a few stacks of Mejos, put said Mejos into zero slot and let them steal it from you. Easy simple egg tames.
3 Females and one Male should be a good starting amount.
Have a chamber surrounding important rooms in your base filled with narc traps, bear traps, dimorphodons, troodons, and these little guys. The traps will either trap/KO raiders, the troodons will tranq them, the dimos will kill them, and the pegomastxs will disarm them. This has defended me from 10+ attempted raids
