They are very good for traveling in the water they are very fast in the water but slow on land. They have good stamina and their attack is also pretty decent especially in the water. You only need to be around level 35 to craft a saddle and theyre great mounts. If your enemy is too strong or can dismount you (raptor for example) run into deep water on ur sarco, most land predators are slow swimmers and you can easily take them out once you lure them into the water. Just make sure to click attack a little bit before you reach your target in water because you'll dart right past it. Also they can't swim backwards and it takes a while to stop swimming too because of the momentum. I use them to hunt brontos, theris, carbonemis, trikes, raptors, even spinos but its pretty dangerous.
Ok most people say these big boys are for beginners but your wrong it’s the best guy for underwear mount it restores its stamina instantly under water it’s not good on land but put that puppy in the water you will love it 10/10
During my first 30 days of playing on my single player world, I was able to take 4 of these absolute beasts. We were UNSTOPPABLE. That was until an Alpha Megladon absolutely wrecked all four of them. Can I get an F for my boys
Once upon a time, my Sarco and I were hunting some Megalodons for fish meat, when a pack of Cnidaria stung the both of us, I tried to swim to the shore but it's too late. Mantas and Megs attacked me and my Sarco. My Sarco tried to fight back, biting his opponents. I swam back to the shore, and... My Sarco never came back. His dead corpse was a feast for Mantas and Megalodons. I hold my fists, my mind thirst for revenge. Rifle in hand, I swam back, shooting every Megalodon and Mantas I see. It was a bloodbath, bodies of Megalodon and Mantas floating in the ocean. I avenged his death… My Sarco…
Rain pours down to the land. He left his beloved wife and son.
Didn't intentionally get him, but he went unconscious rather quickly. I'm new to ark (within first 2 weeks) and the sarco is amazing. (water protection, fast water traversal, insane meat gather, pretty great hide gatherer, and insane protection, especially if you draw your target towards the water. All around great tame in so many ways. This is the way 😅
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
