be careful when near any kind of water bodies because if you're careless enough a sarco might just pop up from water and kill you or your pet ora an animal nearby
also if you encounter a sarco coming at you don't run away it will waste your energy because a sarco can see you from a long distance but what you should do is grab an axe or a pikaxe face the sarco and hit it when it gets closer also if you have a small gap between trees go inside there and the sarco will be stuck you can kill it or run away
If u see one of these go kill it or tame it they are a pain if they are on your island I have had these constantly spawn right where I live but thankfully I set up a nice spike wall along with watch towers be careful around these AND KEEP YOUR DINOS AWAY I learned my lesson already when it took down my first Dino my otter called cuddles.... please click up to pay respects.....
my dodo (lvl 4 at the time, thought he was dead until i whistled my other dinos to follow me) was apparently in the direction of the sarco (lvl 5). he walked right into the sarco and i was convinced he was dead meat. until the sarco’s corpse just flew into the air. man, that dodo was a trooper
Only go near one its out of the water. Try to avoid them if you are a beginner. If one charges stay away from the water. It may seem slow, but it can lunge with shocking speed. Do not climb on a rock, it can lunge and bite you. Run away and stay on land. Sprinting helps.
The sarco has a variety of moves that can make it dangerous so I recommend learning it’s moves before you fight it. While ridden you can turn the camera and then press attack to make the sarco spin around and attack making up for its lousy turn radius. Like modern day crocodiles it can also do the death roll. The sarco grabs a small creature in its jaws and spins itself around doing lots of damage. If the death roll misses its target the sarco will instead lunge forward.
