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
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!
A swift and tough mount, even on land. Even faster in the water.
Attack speed is slow, and the attack range is a small, wide cone, so enemies that are next to its neck tend to not get hit, but keep the enemy a bit further forward and the sarco will be capable of killing it quickly.
Will get stuck on trees easily, can't fit through standard dinosaur gates, and will take wide turns when following.
I think Sarcos are amazing mounts. When in water, they are decently fast and don't have an oxygen stat. Also they don't run out of stamina because it doesn't go down at all. They are also pretty good land mounts. Although they are very slow, they are pretty powerful. I wouldn't suggest fighting anything harder than a pleseosaur and on land nothing harder than a Rex. All in all, I think Sarcos are amazing mounts!
In TLC Phase 2 the sarcosuchus gets a remodel,reworked animations plus a death-roll,with smaller creatures you just grab them,butwith larger creatures you roll violently doing damage to them.did mention that it will also be getting a 180 degree attack?
Definitely one of the best underrated games in the game they are great for diving for pearls but can be stored on land they don't need oxygen, they can go into caves and enter the underwater bubble and you can easily tame it by aggro-ing it out of swamp, the kibble needed is also really easy to get and I got my 130 kibble tamed by collecting eggs on the beach
A tip for newish-players: My Sarco is still only a level twenty-something, by even by level 7, she was killing Titanoboas and kiting megalodons with ease. I can't recommend the Sarco enough as a swamp hunting mount-- and as I said before, ESPECIALLY for Titanoboas. You'll have leather coming in by the hundreds. Just be careful that you go at them head-on, and that you don't take on more than a few beasties at a time. Be especially wary of the Kapro. They'll knock you flat and leave you vulnerable to whatever horrors are crouching in the shadows. Have a pike on hand for those pesky bugs that your Sarco can't reach. And beware, dear reader, the frumious Baryonyx, with jaws that bite and claws that catch. They have a penchant of attacking from the side, making it quite a hastle to get back at them. (At least, from my experiences.) Want to take on other Sarcos with your Sarco? Have no fear. Just get your melee damage up a little bit, and you should be fine.
But as always, tread carefully.
Favorite tame for early to mid game. Ridiculously fast in water and not too bad on land. Lvl up only health and melee damage, turn radius beats megaladons and I've killed many alpha megas this way. Very beefy and can tank hits at 3k health with mounted combat, letting you tranq anything that doesn't knock you off your mount or attack the rider directly (like the Rex or spino).
There is a glitch where when you are on a raft with a sarco and you box it in and you get on and off with either a monkey or compy on your shoulder and you glitch inside the sarco and you open up your map it will show the entire map for you whether you’ve explored there or not.
Something that I don't see too much is acknowledgement of the sarcos ability to not only sprint underwater, but regen stamina while sprinting if underwater. Also, a sprinting sarco in water is the third fastest speed of any tamable creature.
