This guy can take on small-medium carnivores like raptors or carnos without getting hit. It has decent knockback with a weak attack but good stamina and movement speed (including backwards movement). Time your hits right and keep going backwards and alot of threats are no longer a problem! Be careful because his high jump can mean taking alot of fall damage so I suggest upgrading health quite a bit
I find it useful if you pump nothing but weight and then harvest metal with it, just put yourself in the pouch and have a friend walk up to metal nodes, then you can harvest metal without even leaving the pouch!
Had one of these in a multi server, named him Steve Irwin. One of the best transport tames ingame period, got around 30 levels because of him. I’ve killed rexes and broncos with this thing. Knockback is amazing, and can easily run away from a fight if things go wrong. Sadly, game crashed in a cave and he passed away. Rest In Peace, Steve Irwin.
