This dino is the best well rounded all terrain for all your needs! A must have on Center Map! They run fast, swim faster without using stamina, have a nice AoE attack, plus their size means they can challenge more dinos without fear, and they dont get stuck easily. Level their stamina, weight, health, and melee and a spino wont let you down anywhere you take it!
A good way to get it unconscious without a flying dinosaur is by making 10 stone pillars, 10 wooden ladders then climbing up the pillars and shoot it with tranq darts or arrows, it can't break stone fast so ur safe. Pls don't use less than 10 pillars, I tried and I got pushed of the pillar and just died:( Sorry for my bad English. Hope this helped
Want to tame a super dimetrodon? Read on! Before we get to it, you're gonna want to prepare these things:
5/ 10: Intermediate
WHAT YOU WILL WANT:
-Taming weapon and ammo (Bow (Tranq arrows), Crossbow (Tranq arrows), Longneck rifle (Tranq/ Shocking tranq darts)
-Taming food (Meat (I prefer raw over fish) / Mutton, Kibble)
Now that you have what you need, let's get taming!
For this dino, there are 2 methods (Honest). Here they are:
METHOD 1: The Trap
The usual. 2x2 stone trap (4 stone floors, 16 stone walls and 4-6 ramps), cost efficient and simple. Lead the spino into the trap and tranq it down. When taming, make sure to watch its torpor as it drains quite fast!
METHOD 2: Trapless
Very easy to perform. Find a spino and tranq it down, and chase it when it runs (Do note the spino is EXTREMELY fast). Also clear the area of nasties (I lost my spino to a Therizino), they like to aggro on everything. Now repeat the taming process and welcome your new spino to your family!
Now, onto the features of the Spino:
Spinos are glass cannons, typically having lesser health but more damage than a Rex. They have 2 stances -- The 4-legged and 2-legged stances. The 4-legged stance has a high attack rate but lesser damage, and vice versa for the 2-legged stance. They also have a Hydrophobic Boost, which boosts their stats when they enter a body of water. This increases their movement speed, damage and damage resistance.
That's pretty much it for the Spino! Thanks for your time and check out my other tips!
Hello survivor, if your reading this then you want to learn about the spino and how to tame it! So welcome to the ARK taming and egg stealing guide on all ark creatures
To tame a spino you will need: four Dino gateways and gates preferably stone because they can damage wood. A lot of tranqs, for a 150 I suggest around 100-135 arrows and if your using darts grab a few less, And a large bear trap or two.
Finding the spino
Finding spinos on the island is pretty easy when they spawn, but they share spawns with fish so the fish might make it so spinos cannot spawn, if this happens just run up and down the river killing fish, once most are dead leave render distance and come back, there should be 1-2 spinos now. On abberation (the map I mostly play on) finding them is easy but it’s more the avoiding them that sucks for abb players. On most maps they spawn in small lakes or rivers and sometimes streams.
Taming the spino
Taming a spino seems like a hard task but it’s really not, all you need to do is make a square out of the Dino gates and it’s one wall missing, that wall should be where you lead the spino in, once you have the square place large bear traps in it and take a flyer or shoot the spino from behind the trap to get it in. Once it is stuck in the bear traps that you put in the trap go up behind it and put the last door and gate. Congratulations! You have trapped a spino!
Knocking it out
I know your wondering why I did a section on this but it’s to warn you, spinos need a ton of narcotics and you will need to be constantly monitoring the area for threats like a Rex or ravagers and you will also need to be constant monitoring it’s torpidity so it does not wake up. I suggest eliminating al hostile creatures around and have you creature out on neutral and set it somewhere to protect the spino and then you can watch it (neutral makes it attck anything that attacks you or the Dino itself).
