Honestly I think the combat capabilities of the Pteranodon is underrated. On mobile these guys actually makes a double hit every time they attack, so even though their base damage is 15 (a bit lower than an Argy’s 18), they have much better DPS than argys. They are also much more nimble than argys. I’ve been to dead island many times before on my pteranodon (lvl 240) and have never been pulled off by a raptor, cuz whenever I see one of them is about to pounce I just press forward and I’m 50 yards outside of the raptor’s attack range. When I went there with my argy (also lvl 240) for the first time I immediately got yeeted off cuz the argy is too slow to get out of the way. I survived (barely) thanks to my full set ascendent flak or chitin armour. The pteranodon’s barrel roll attack is also very strong, cuz you do like 3 times the base damage to anything in your path and you speed up drastically so you can get out of the attack range of the baddies you’re fighting in a split second. I tamed the argy thinking it was gonna replace my pteranodon, now my argy’s only use is as a cargo plane.
How to do barrel roll on mobile: Go to settings and then go to controls then either go to left multi tap or right multi tap. Then select Reload/Alt attack2. When you are done, go and press on your screen twice on either left or ritght side. And you pteranodon can now do a barrel roll! Disclaimer:wastes stamina alot so be careful. Like so newbies see this!
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.
I suggest taming a lvl 120 cuz they are really op and when tamed they are lvl 180 and they can carry decent weight and 1k stamina I tamed one and I named her Aurora and we killed 4 brontos and two spino together and tamed a lvl 95 therizino and she was the best *she's still alive btw
