To all the people who are like “there is a spino how do I deal with it”
Well I have had first hand experience fighting these as a low level. So really you have a few options. You can
A: try to kill it with ranged weapons
B: try to kill it with wild herbivores
C: use your tames to try to kill it
You will want a decent crossbow and 10-20 arrows for a level 1-10. Then get high ground to shoot at it. Spinos have low health off they are low level. But it will try to run
Try finding high level or very strong herbivores
Hit it with a bow and get it to chase you. Then run past a herbivore that’s good for a fight with it and maybe try to help it with a bow
You will need a strong tames and basically you want the spino out of water and you fight it with your tames. Whistle target and send them to fight. Make sure to back them up so use a ranged weapon
And finally for D
D is actually really complex and risky. You need to get all your stuff and put it in your tames and run away from the spino. Now you should scout where your gonna go first and make sure there’s a way to get around all the threats.
Once I was just chillin at my base with my 4 trikes, 2 raptors and 1 bronto them this spino walks up to my base wrecks my house and kills my tames I barely get away on my raptor. THIS BEAST PLAYED VOLLEYBALL WITH MY BRONTO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I tamed one now I have a big base lots of tames and my spino is the same one that ruined my base all that time ago. (Ironic right?)
I have a Fem Spino, she's level 63 rn, one time when she was level 4 there was 1 Theri level 52 attacking my house, I said "NOT MY OTTER" cuz I left him on my house, so i was riding my Spino named Beast and the anger made me and Beast stronger cuz we killed the Theri easily, one up one respect for Beast
So I was just going about my day in ark, and then I see the spino. I don’t realize how much health they had and how much damage they did.😐 I was a frikin idiot and shot it with a rifle. It was barreling twards me. If your a starter like me, DONT ALERT IT
Once tried to tame one for my bf while he was offline bc he wanted one. Flew with my Pterra and shot it full of 20!!!!! tranq arrows . Didn’t even flinch. I got too cocky and went too close to the edge of the cliff i was standing on. I fell off RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE SPINO. it’s health was low enough that it started to run away. Without looking back, i whistled for my Pterra to follow and ran for my life. currently trying to get another one :( wish me luck!
