Don’t set on aggressive when cave diving, mines tried to jump about 100 metres into a lava pool after a Scorpus and ended up swimming in the lava, worse than that was his form was terrible, 4.5/10 max.
The best way to gather chitin for early players in scorched earth, unless you can somehow manage to tame a sloth early on. I take mine out to hunt for scorpions or thorny dragons, and taking out jugbugs with these is better than just using an axe. This is great for getting cementing paste to make wells which are pretty much essential in scorched earth. Once i harvested 30 keratin from a thorny, so I would recommend hunting those for a good amount.
Great for taming other tames even if they run away. Just chase after and shoot. Be careful wait a few sec between shots or you will end up killing the creature due to the fact tranc take a few sec to take effect. Also great for a quick sprint in caves to get them goodies and collect hide while doing so.
