This is an excellent all-rounder for the early game. Fast, tough, hits hard, just needs a bit of stamina. Very common on the beaches and in that lagoon thingy in the Southern Islets. Pretty slow on land and easy to get stuck behind rocks and trees. Definitely recommended
If you live near a swamp, then you’ll be able to use this Dino for incredibly fast travel! It’s also durable enough when tamed to kill or run from any threats. Level up speed and stamina, as well as weight.
Good mount to take into rivers and even the ocean. Good for hunting fish and I've even seen it beat a megladon. But never use it to fight a Rex because if things go south it is a very slow land mount. Short and sweet it is a hunting mount
I see all these comments on how to tame it lol. Easy. Shoot it in the face while walking backwards job done. None of this tame pen rubbish or hugging its legs. If you get one in the swamp your gonna want to lure it out of the swamp though
TLC patch coming March 2018 adding "Deathroll" grab attack on small creatures and a grab attack (possibly thrash) on larger ones, gaining a 180 degree attack and a small lunge to its attack (maybe for deathroll purpose), will no longer aggo pirahnas and in the wild will sit with mouth gaped open awaiting prey. Like so people can see!
Do not kill something in the water near a tamed sarco on aggression target, it will glitch the sarco to spin around in circles and will eventually pick you up and possibly crash your game. It’s cool though.
In my experience I have found a couple of ways of taking these big boys down easily. The first one is to utilise it's turning circle as it cannot turn fast at all, so hug it's back legs, turn with it and whack it with some sort of melee weapon at the same time, a sword or pike works best for this. The second technique is to just walk backwards and shoot it with something, preferably something damaging, so I wouldn't suggest using a slingshot here. But doing this back step technique will allow you to just be too far away from the Sarco's bite, however, be careful of what can come sneaking up behind you. And by all means do not try and out swim this thing, it will win, every time.
