Any level up Ptera will do as the only stat you need to level up is movement speed. Good for getting around very fast.
A high level Ptera is recommended. Can be used to quickly transport resources back to base. I recommend leveling up weight to 300-350 and put the rest of the points into movement speed. 300-350 weight will ensure that you can carry a full stack of 200 metal, saddle and tools without being encumbered. Works great with an ankylo at the mining site or a character with high amounts of melee.
A high level Ptera is preferred. Level up stamina to 2k, movement speed to 160-180% and put the rest into melee. This makes harvesting prime easy as you can quickly fly it back to base before it spoils. Level up weight as needed.
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!
If you play on mobile and want to do the roll then go to settings left or right multi tap and chose alt attack 2 !!!
NOW FOR THE MAIN PART--- THESE THINGS CAN KILL GIGAS the normal roll does decent damage but if you roll and attack a dino while watching the dino through spyglass you can deal tons of damage (this works in mobile idk about other platforms) i killed tons of rexes,brontos,allos..etc. using this trick
Guys I found out something incredibly COOL! I play mobile so this might not work on PC but I found out how to kill stuff really easily. Whenever I use my spyglass and do a barrel roll and hit the creature it does a lot of damage! I have even killed brontos, rexes, spinosaurus, and more in just one or two hits! Just practice your aiming though, cuz it’s sometimes a bit hard to aim, especially if the creature is kind of small. Plz tap the arrow pointing to the sky if this helped.
