Sarcos are strong early-mid game mounts that work as great tanks and defenders. They are best used in beaches and swamps, due too their fast speed in water, but slow speed on land. To tame a Sarco it’s best to used traqs since they have high melee. Get one trapped (which is very easy), build a trap, or simply walk backwards or hover on a flying mount. The dangers of taming a Sarco is, of course, it’s powerful jaws and tendency to leap out of nowhere. You have to watch out for the other creatures as well. Especially the jumpy saber Sarco. Once nocked feed it RAW FISH meat as it take almost 5x less to tame then reg meat. Once you have this guy craft a saddle and ride this terrifying beast! On another note, to kill a Sarco, simply shoot it or bombard it. They are really bad when attacked by multiple strong targets so use that to ur advantage. Hope this was helpful! 100 ^ for more!
I just knocked one out. I was very afraid of these monsters before but its actually a quite easy tame! I recommend this snappy thing for beginners underwater mounts. Good luck taming it. [Up so the noobs see ;D]
DO NOT listen to the person who wrote the following comment: “DO NOT tame in the lower south cave. It will get stuck on the way out and be trapped there forever.”. If it can’t (which will most likely be the case if tamed down there, because (in my experience) Sarcos struggle just entering the cave with how wide they are. But don’t listen to that guy. Just summon it out in the “Request Creature” tab and wait for it to teleport (I have summoned creatures out of the cave when they get stuck and they teleport just fine). Share this with anyone you know who struggles with that.
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
Great thing about Sarcos is their wide turning range, so easiest and cheapest way to tame one is running and shooting back with tranq arrows. On mobile, highly suggest getting an asc bow and arrow from the dilo hunt pursuit. WARNING: Sarcos are kinda fast, so prob best to jump and run while doing it. Once knocked out, best to do it at night so you can grab a sleeping bag to sleep and get its food drained, then use a soothing balm to get it quickly! How I easily got a 150 sarco
It’s definitely great for traveling in water, and with its rather high weight you can steal beaver dams with ease and swim away quickly, or kill them since they have rather good melee and health. It’s great for its piranha scaring ability and turn on the spot attacking, but can get annoying when a creature is too close and you can’t hit it
Best way get a second player have him run through the swamp and find one get it to chase him and lead it back to you and just pelt it with tranq arrows and trust me if you have a high level Sarco and live near the beach it is a must
