Just spawned into a new world on the island and spent a solid 30 min making a thatch base. I walked down the beach and saw a spin-off pop out of the ocean right in front of me. Killed me in two hits. Was not expecting to see a spin-off in my first 30 of playing! Going to try and tame it tomorrow.
I wasn't expecting for one to spawn in the easy zone on the shore line like come on i was coming back home from doing a mission and the Spino gave me a heart attack but I guess it was my fault for killing all of the cinardia (jelly fish) in the river causing it to spawn in since I made room for it. But now not only do I have to deal with megapiranhas, jellyfish,titanboas, and megalodons I have to deal with a spino now too.
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!
Favourite dinosaur by far. Could NEVER bring my self to shoot one, but then I did, wile defending base.
Love spinos. Such colourful sails! Dark and eerie is a good combination, or red+speed.
Salute to all the fallen spinos. May you forever roar on.
For those low levels who want to kill the spino, the probably the 4th hardest hitter in the game; first, you need to find a wild brontosaurus. Next, let the spino spot you, after that, you run under the brontosaurus and the spino will lose interest in you and will attack it instead. After the Spino’s first attack, run. The Bronto’s tail will hit you by accident so just run while popping stimberries in your mouth to maintain your stamina. After it is low on health, it will flee. But if you want to kill it and not let the spino escape the pursuit of the Bronto, Get the ascendant bow and kill it. You need to have a good aim though, it’s considered to be a very fast creature.
Be careful when attacking a spino. I attaked one on my wolf which was fully implanted by me. I only got a few hitsin when he went crazy. They do lots of knockback so my wolf silver was killed out from under me and I barely escaped with my life only because of a bronto standing near by that I was able to run under. Upv ote so people can know.
One time a level 46 spino was attacking but I had four spike walls. I got him to(play ring around the rosey)walk right into them. They did so much damage all I had to do was fire one shot from my crossbow with normal arrows. So if you have a spino problem… just do what I did! Hope this helps!
As far as I know, only 3 wild carnivores will aggro onto the sight of your spino, other Spinos, Rexes, and Gigas. You can probably outfight other spinos, outrun rexes, or outfight lower level ones, and outrun gigas. Very useful.
