Essential early game tame, but they're extremely squishy and years of nerfs have curbed their usefulness. I normally only deploy pteranadons in emergencies, to quickly retrieve a body and/or tame. They have their pvp applications too of course, but the pteranadon is largely just an early stepping stone on your way to bigger and better fliers. Set your sights for the argentavis next.
Here tip how to make barrel roll on mobile
First go to controls setting and set the multi tap to alt attack 2.(I recommend the right one) Then to do it just tap the right side with 2 fingers. Ezpzlemonsquezy
Like so ppl can see
My Pteranodon, Shan. Absolute legend. True trooper. Top dog. Killed level 139 Spino on his own. Only level 92. Killed 20 Therizinos. 5 Carnos, 19 Direbears. 31 Raptors, 2 griffins and one Argentavis including a Megalodon that poked its tail up. Can fly from East to west without landing for stamina once. Wiped out a whole crew of boas with 5 barrel rolls. Rescued my Dilophosaurs more than twice. Very useful Pteranodon.
