This giant crocs are really helpful at sea. They can swim faster a shark. In center, if you want to go redwood forest for just discovering something, go with it. You can travel in river and you can run away tigers. At the end, Sarco is one of the best discovering creatures. Don't waste them in a fight, take it and discover the lands.
Extremely fast in the water with practically no stamina consumption (it just needs to take a break for a second or two to recover stamina). Take care to not accidentally run into jellies. Lost quite a few sacro this way.
Expanding upon my last tip, my Sarco has reached level 143 or so and she's completely unstoppable. Pump health and melee, bit of stam for good measure, and as long as you keep the river in running distance your high level sarcosuchus can take on any rex and at least mid alpha carnos. And they're easy so easy to tame, they are a must have tame.
Do not kill something in the water near a tamed sarco on aggression target, it will glitch the sarco to spin around in circles and will eventually pick you up and possibly crash your game. It’s cool though.
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.
With the new addition (death roll) keep an eye on the Torpidity level. To much spinning will knock your sarco out like it did mine. It will take forever to wake back up so make sure you also have good weaponry/armor in case you end up playing body guard for your sarco.
Probably the best mount for survivors below lvl 50. Super easy to tame, it's saddle is only at lvl 35 and just like turtles it's body is low enough that you can "ride" it without a saddle. Decent speed on land, best turn of any dino, relatively strong, extremely fast in water. Just beware Raptors can dismount you off a sarco (the largest creature Raptors can dismount you off of is the rock drake) and baryonyx will aggro and can stun lock when in water. Right click (or left trigger on console) is a death roll which is basically as useful as the therizinos peck, C (right stick on console) makes your 40 foot gharial lunge in the direction of which it last sspinned, attacking while looking behind you will make it spin around giving it the best turn in the game, lunge doesn't work in water, beware wild sarcos can grab you for several seconds and dismount you off some small dinos.
I have started several solo / non-dedicated games over quarantine (pc failed few times) and every time i tame one of these guys... They make travel quick (using the rivers and oceans) and can tank soooo much damage..best early game tame ever
Long live "After 8" (my green and black sarco)
It's a really good tame especially in water. Use one of these around like 40-50 to kill alpha megladons easy. Just circle around and hit their tail or body and it can't hit you back. Just watch for you're oxygen (sarco has infinite oxygen).
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!
