Spino have an enormous turning radius. You can use this to your advantage. If a spino chases you run inland or toward a bunch of trees. The spino will get stuck on the trees and then turn around running in a full circle to reach you. For some reason even though the spino is large enough to knock down trees it will turn around and run in a wide arc attempting to reach you.Just be mindful of other dangers inland like raptors and carnotaurus.
So I went hunting for raptors then I found a few otters, so I went and killed a few fish to kill it. When I tried to tame the otter, out of no where a spinosaurus came out the ran right past me and killed a Alpha Triceratops in like five plows and I ran as far as my little legs could do. DO NOT KILL FISH NEAR THE BEACH!!!!
Here’s some tips. They’re mostly found in the southeast shores, and the southern islets. However, they can sometimes spawn IN THE SNOWY MOUNTAINS! To knock out a Spino, I didn’t use trap method. I just ran up a cliff and tranq it out. However, the cliff taming method is hard, as the Spino has torpor run. Be sure to have tons of narcotics and bio toxin, as their torpor drops fast. DO NOT USE NARCOBERRIES! NARCOBERRIES CAN ONLY BE FED ONCE EVERYTIME THE SPINO EATS A MEAT, MAKING IT EXTREMELY EASY TO WAKE UP!
Heres the tools you need:
Do the hunt dilophosaur quest and get a good bow (otherwise use crossbow)
Craft about 100 tranqs (if the level is high craft way more than THAT.)
Medical brews/cooked meat if you need to Regen
A Dino that is fast. I use Sarcos as they’re tanky, fast in water, and can take out annoying aggressive small creatures instantly. I also recommend Gallimimus (not used for engage in battle!), and other fast creatures. The most common method I use is to go right in front of the Spino, and tranq it on my sarco. When my sarco is low, I’ll just hop into the water and continue to tranq it. This way, it’s easy, and when you need to chase it during torpor run, you can just hop right off and chase it. Use fish meat! There are so many rivers nearby! You can also use prime fish meat (if you have sickle), as the local population of salmons are plentiful. Up if you think this is helpful!
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?)
So I was on my Therizinosaur on ark mobile and then I saw these while going home. I was like “Oh yeah that’s free XP and Levels for my Theri” and attacked one. I didn’t realize that it was Lvl 100+. It ripped a chunk of my theri’s health, but I killed it and survived. I saw another one, and I was like, “Oh yeah that’s another level there” and tried to kill it. I killed it, but my Therizino was below one thousand. There was one last one, and I took the risk. Boom! Now below 700, with Raptors attacking me. My therizino had a penny of health now. Moral: Don’t take risks with these guys.
