ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
Guys!!!! Don’t compare the Rex and the Spino! Both are good at what they are. Spino is a glass cannon and gets a major buff in water. It has high speed, damage, range and knockback. Use this against small enemies to medium-large enemies to ultra decimate them! Even more when in water!!! It’s damage is what carries it. Rex is a tank that is used against bigger enemies. It has ultra health, high damage (but less than Spino), moderate speed, moderate range and has a ability to stun creatures and make them defecate! Use against small enemies for major advantage, as well as big enemies too! It does good at both tanking and damage, so it’s rounded up unlike the Spino. When comparing each other, none are better than the other. They are both very good at what they do!
More Spinosaurus Taming & KO Tips
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!

-Your average ARK Mobile player ;)
Why tame either a Rex or Spino… when you can take both? 😏
This is way better than the rex
If you hear your mobile ring and you misplaced it.. run like hell because a spino is staring down at you.. right now..
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
Dont do what I did, ALWAYS BRING A LOTTA NARCOTICS. I was taming one and only had like 13 narcotics. To make a long story short, I woke up and I had to fly away on mt pteradon. Up if this helped
Bruh, people just making this thing hard. The tip to tame a spinosaurus is just going for him riding a carbonemys (it will need lots of health, I think 2000 is enough) while having a crossbow or bow with tranqs. Just shoot him repeatedly as he will hit your carbonemys instead of you, and when he starts to run away, get out of the carbonemys and keep shooting and chasing him until he gets knocked. Then feed him lots of meat and use lots of narcotics (biotoxins better). Thx for reading and hope it helps ^_^
Are you considering taming a fish-eating apex predator of the amphibious (but mostly land) variety? Who am I kidding, you probably are! But for starters; in this tip is what I would recommend bringing or using! You, however can tame this beast in whatever way you think will work! However it’s also good to know what your getting into, now let’s get started! Let’s start with supplies!; Since we are dealing with a apex predator, Be sure to consider packing flak armor sets! As this is the best, cheapest armor to make! Next on the shopping list is the narcotics! When taming this beast it’s best to know that it’s torpor goes down exeedingly quick so I would suggest about 100 / 200 biotoxin to keep it asleep, next be sure to pack taming supplies! I would suggest packing kibble, It likes superior kibble I’m pretty sure, (be sure to check as I might be wrong!) if you don’t have access to kibble, the next step down will be prime fish meat! Also i suggest bringing a fast flying tame, why? For its size, do NOT underestimate its speed, it uses it to eithor run you down or, in this case run away! Now there is two stances the spinosaurus will use! The primary stance it most commonly uses
Is it’s quad-pedal stance, it will stand on all 4s and grants it with a very quick way of getting somewhere, it’s downside is it’s maneuverability to turn! It’s other stance is Bi-pedal, this stance is used primarily by the spino for a damage boost and maneuvering, it’s downside however is it moves way slower than quad pedal, quad pedal doesn’t do nearly as much damage as bipedal! I suggest using bear traps, as the net gun won’t bring this apex predator down, (chain bolas work too!) also consider bringing about 100 tranq arrows or more cut that in half will be the amount of darts you will need,! Taming is similar to that of the most renowned apex predator of the ark commonly known as the giganotasaurus! The spinos torpor goes down half of a 1/3s of that of a gigas! Taming might take a while depending on what you are useing! You now have yourself the fish eating apex predator known as the spino! A very quick and great battle mount in diffrent stances! Also makes a decent bossbattle creature! Hope this helped, and as always happy taming, and take care! :D
I just knocked out a 140 spino
