It is a very fast mount, especially when you sprint + jump. It is stronger than a raptor, weaker than a carno(in the wild). Tamed if you level it up enough it can even take on a rex. It harvests a lot of chitin and hide, even more than it harvests meat. Perfect creature to cave with.
I used a stone trap with one dinosaur gate, and six window frames (you can also use door frames), two walls high. Use wooden fence foundations to connect it all. Using Bronto kibble is the easiest way, on Mobile. When you have them, they’re super easy to tame and breed.
Simply amazing at collecting hide and chitin. You can easily get 50-60 chitin per scorpion kill. Hide numbers run up quick too. Within minutes you'll be sitting at around a 1000 hide. They're quicker than the raptor Imo and pack a much harder punch. They do lack higher defense like other big dinos, but don't be fooled by their size. These guys are nasty. I recommend getting health above 1800. Stamina around 800-100, movement speed 130+, and melee around 250-300%. If you can achieve this, you'll have an exceptional utility hunter.
For those who read my rex story (about a rex on the other island and swam back a couple of seconds later and I was killed by a scorpion) This devil killed me the second when I reopened (near forest) I thought they were only in tundra or snow, I guess not :(
I just about had my Griffin Tamed, then this guy came over Lvl 177 killed me and my Griffin. Rip in the chat. Next time if you see one run away or bola in tame it kill it or run away. Very fast. 130 movement speed at least. Likes for the Griffin!!!😭😭😭
Simply Aggro it, lurę it to the trap, it can be wooden,you will knock it out with tranq darts or arrows before it destroys the trap, grab some meat, narcos and it's yours, you have a chitin and hide tank. ;)
