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.
These guys don’t take fall damage (at least on mobile they don’t. I’ve never played PC/Console so I can’t confirm on those) when you’re riding that. Combine that with it’s high knock back, and it’s pretty great for mountain climbing! Kick enemies away from you and you can just jump down when you’re ready without having to worry about your roo dying!
Now one of the most important dinos for rasing babies! Have them mate boosted and you can get extra imprints and reduced food consumption! Baby goes in its pouch! Be aware its kinda bugged to do it...ark life...
