In my opinion, these guys are the best, go on, say i am weird.
First, they are very easy to tame, all you need is a few spoiled meats and a bola, tranq arrows or even slingshots will do.
Second, after they are tamed, they are super useful, you can use them for cheap creature knock-outs, plus, if you tamed one in a cave, then use it for exploration, nothing in the cave can pick on you, making it easy to get to the artifacts.
Third, they are super easy to care for, they eat spoiled meat as well, so if a stack of meat spoils in its inventory, it will still eat them.
They have decent speed, stamina and melee damage, and can cross over tough terrain that most dinosaurs can’t.
Faster in water. Can knock out dinos after being tamed but it’s not effective. Nothing aggros unless you attack. Takes 2-1 stings to pacify. Wonderful for taming, pump health, use it as a tank, shooting tranqs, throwing bolas while mounted >:) Tame passives without spooking them. Makes it so much easier to tame everything tbh, if you don’t have an argy or quetz, get a scorpion! Good at collecting fish bc of there speed in water but bary is better
Scorpions make a great early seafaring mount if you hold the jump key ( space bar by default) a scorpion will float above the water allowing you to get past most Puranas without being attacked, this can be extremely useful for crossing dangerous rivers or even oceans.
If you see a quetz you want and you have a tame that can carry this pulminoscorpius pick it up using something like an argentavis fly up and drop the scorpion on it and that’s how you tame a quetzal and put this scorpion to good use
