As long as you manage to get on their backs and they don’t show off their gymnastics moves (barrel roll) you are good and keep stabbing it with your sword until it is dead. But I recommend having something to distract it too. My Parasaur (Yoo) and I were returning home from a failure trip trying to farm chitin for some armor. And we were passing by a swamp when I saw a lvl 40 sarco and I was like Huaaaaaaa, there is a noob here. And Yoo attacked it while the sarco was focused on killing Yoo I jumped on its back and managed to balance on it and killed it with my sword. Yoo didn’t die and I wasn’t even injured.
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
One has been terrorizing my beach forever now! I keep shooting it with tranquilizer arrows but it won’t pass out! I just want this stupid thing to go awayyyyyyyyyy... oh yeah and it’s killing all the animals so I’m going hungry! Send help
Battling, use some high level games if possible and they should kill it if you want the skin, hide, or meat. Escaping, if you are new to ark pump movement speed to run away from predators, if not get on your tame and skedaddle.
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.
I loved on a very small island in the middle of the sothern isles and I discovered there was a sarco.2 actually.i delt with it while it was fighting a bronto.by shooting it with a longneck rifle.it was real easy as it didn’t attack me.if you are lower level a bow should work too
When riding on a boat keep an eye out for these guys because unlike most other water dwelling predators, sarcos can still see you and attack you on the raft. If it gets to you it will be hard to shake off the raft, it'll make the raft move buggily, and if you don't act quick it will ruin anything you're carrying on the boat, and can of course kill you, most likely leaving you're raft stranded. If you have a partner have them stab it to death, they are weaker than they look. If you're alone, try to get as close to shore as you can and fight it off there.
