More Spinosaurus Utility Tips
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!
DO NOT ENTER UNDERWATER CAVES ON YOUR BELOVED SPINO, YOU WILL GET FLUNG INTO THE ABYSS. Also, make sure that if you’re doing underwater exploration on one to always have them on follow, if you don’t, they’ll fly up to the surface of the water and you’ll drown deep in the depths of god knows where, also probably keep them on passive for this reason so they don’t start attacking something while you drown like “GET BACK HERE!!!”

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.
