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.
Lower levels are rather squishy for what they are, and the terrible turn & attack rate doesn’t help either. My first Sarco was two-shot by a wild one (which was then two-shot by my Baryonyx). Otherwise, it’s a decent mount.
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!
If you can get something into the water, you're almost guaranteed a victory. Just make sure you act cleverly and don't take any ridiculously dangerous risks. In this way, my level-twenty-something Sarco was able to defeat an Alpha Carno, with a whole lot of kiting and a whole lot of biting.
