I really believe Sarcos are one of the most underrated creatures in the game. Yeah, on land it's kind of pathetic, but it's high swim speed coupled with the ability to shoot while mounted make it EXCELLENT for taming aquatic creatures. I prefer using it over ichthyosaurus.
Shoot the target, swim away when it gets too close, rinse and repeat. Or lure targets to the coast and shoot them from the (relative) safety of the beach if you can.
Just be careful if you go exploring the Deep Ocean with them. Combat-wise, a high level Sarco can handle anglers, megalodons and even plesiosaurs (provided you have a good saddle), but you're better off running from everything else. Thankfully they have good stamina and can out-swim most everything that lives in the water.
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.
Faster than a megeladon, more agile than a megeladon, easier to tame and can go on land. What's not to like? It's base swimming speed is fast which makes it very safe to travel the coast and make runs to herbivore island.
They are a good beginer tame because they are good hunters and FAST
i have one on xbox and found out YOU CAN RIDE IT WITHOUT A SADDLE
just sit on its back and whistle it to go somewhere and you will stay on! Great for fast swims across rivers!
I love dinos for four years, I loved the crap out of of the Spino. And then... I found this beautiful creature. I don’t know if I’ve just been lucky of what, but I have tamed up a bunch of speed demons. I have a herd of them. I’m growing the herd. Nothing goes near my base because it’s immediately caught in the circle of death. I watched a level 20 bronco get shredded by these guys in about 4 seconds. If you seem to lack a good meat-eater, a couple of these guys do the trick. Seriously amazing.
I have found while riding a Sacro that it is extremely powerful. I put in for health and Melee and stamina and i was able 5o defeat 4 to 5 Rexs at one time and a alpha raptor and a few Griffins and it is really good at getting around on water and taking out fishes and i haven't swam in the ocean due to my level isnt high enough to get the scuba gears but other than that the things said about the Scaro is true and i would use a Scaro to go anywhere the only problem is it attack cone i would assume it would be able to use it tail like a alligator would to hit a target but it still really powerful and i hope dear readers you find this creature really good just put in health, melee, and stamina and you can rule Ark.
