Spinos are not only my favorite dinosaur irl, but they are my favorite mount in the game. They are agile for their size, deal tons of damage (especially when bipedal), and are so fast. If your Spino just stand in a puddle of water, it will get the hydration buff, which increases its damage by 15 percent, movement speed by 20 percent, and health regeneration by 25 percent. In the wild, they are extremely dangerous, aggroing on almost everything. However, when low on health, they will run away from a fight as a last-ditch effort to survive. Overall, even though there are faster creatures (Direwolf), creatures with more health or damage (Rex or Giga) and better creatures for diving the ocean depths (Tuso), they are the most well rounded creature to have - especially when mutated. My mutated Spino only has one useful mutation, a health mutation, but I pumped his damage so high, he is dealing over 1500 damage. I highly recommend the Spino to every survivor. It is so worth it.
These are stronger than the rex, and tame one of these beasts instead of some old rex. 1. they get an underwater buff when up to mid body in the water and farther. 2. on two legs their attacks are faster and stronger then a rexes but they walk slower,and on four legs they are faster, but not as strong. If a tamed one is following you, they will do this automatically, when riding you must do it on your own. 3. They're easier to tame then a rex! So if you're debating on taming one of these bad boys, or the infamous rex, choose this dude. These beasts need more recongition. One like=one spino fan!
I posted a tip on the fact that Spinos are better than rexes, and tbh, they still are. The tip has above 600 likes. I did end up taming a pair of rexes, and breeding them. They had a baby rex that I painted blue and fully imprinted, and pumped all its points into melee. And guess what? I've only pumped a few points into melee on my spino.... AND THE MELEE IS ACTUALLY COMPARABLE! I rest my case. Spinos are also verrry fast. Lol my Spino has WAYYY more damage than my Giga. One like=One respect for Spinos!
Spinos are really, REALLY, good. First, these things can switch between standing on 2 legs(allowing them to turn on the spot, and deal more damage, but be slower, even outdamaging a rex on 2 legs) and 4 legged mode(where they will do leas damage, but be way faster, and have a huge turning radios) you cannot use the 2 legged mode underwater, only on land, underwater u can only be with 4 legged mode. If a spino enteres water(a river, lake, inside an ocean, and so on) it will get a damage buff, health regen buff, and speed buf, making it a lot stronger. The buff is permanent as long as u at least touch the water, and lasts 30 seconds outside of it. The spino is very good at traveling, as most aggresive dinos(raptors, carnos, and so on) will become neutral towards you. The spino also has great speed on all 4, is quite slow on 2 legs, and is even faster with the water buff. It is also extremely powerful.mode. It also attacks faster than a rex. The spino also harvests a ton of meat and hide.
I think dis thing should have a platform saddle for his giant spine. And also PEOPLE STOP SAYING THEY ARE USELESS THEY COULD LEND YOU A HAND FROM LEADING A GIGA AWAY FROM YOUR HOUSE LIKE BUBBLES DID!!!! *salutes bubbles* “good bye good sir” TnT
To be strictly honest the spinosaur is one of the best mounts in game if you are even wble to obtain one be sure to make it a high level one they are very squishy at first so go around killing small dinos before attacking big prey
TLC patch coming in March 2018 to add the ability to swap between 2 legged mode (faster attacks and ability to attack with claws) and 4 legged mode (Faster movement), as well as increased turning radius, movement speed, damage, and health regen while in water and for a short time after leaving it. Like so people can see!
