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.
I think dis thing should have a platform saddle for his giant spine. And also PEOPLE STOP SAYING THEY ARE USELESS THEY COULD LEND YOU A HAND FROM LEADING A GIGA AWAY FROM YOUR HOUSE LIKE BUBBLES DID!!!! *salutes bubbles* “good bye good sir” TnT
Do not tame a Spino. Tame two and breed them. Tamed spinos are good. Imprinted spinos have zero chill. Hands down my favorite mount on land. Crazy fast (can out run gigas) do great damage, especially with the hydrated buff and they're super stamina efficient. The Rex can be a bit more tanky, but tank doesn't matter when you're slapping down Rexes like they're dilos.
Spinos are not only my favorite dinosaur irl, but they are my favorite mount in the game. They are agile for their size, deal tons of damage (especially when bipedal), and are so fast. If your Spino just stand in a puddle of water, it will get the hydration buff, which increases its damage by 15 percent, movement speed by 20 percent, and health regeneration by 25 percent. In the wild, they are extremely dangerous, aggroing on almost everything. However, when low on health, they will run away from a fight as a last-ditch effort to survive. Overall, even though there are faster creatures (Direwolf), creatures with more health or damage (Rex or Giga) and better creatures for diving the ocean depths (Tuso), they are the most well rounded creature to have - especially when mutated. My mutated Spino only has one useful mutation, a health mutation, but I pumped his damage so high, he is dealing over 1500 damage. I highly recommend the Spino to every survivor. It is so worth it.
To be strictly honest the spinosaur is one of the best mounts in game if you are even wble to obtain one be sure to make it a high level one they are very squishy at first so go around killing small dinos before attacking big prey
Idk why people are saying that this creature is worse than Rex. It has better speed, and faster attack than Rex's. Mine is level 230 and it killed level 100 alpha rex with 45000 health with only losing half of its health. (Sorry for my bad English)
TLC patch coming in March 2018 to add the ability to swap between 2 legged mode (faster attacks and ability to attack with claws) and 4 legged mode (Faster movement), as well as increased turning radius, movement speed, damage, and health regen while in water and for a short time after leaving it. Like so people can see!
One thing about Spinos is that they really really REALLY love to make babies, I had two Spinos Finn and Spinnerella, TWO! And when I came back from a hunt to make a saddle I had 3. Let me tell you they almost always come out female I swear to god, so later I had 5, then 9 then 13 because some were boys and now I have 26 in 10 hours and a lot of fertilized eggs. (Also I play on a solo unmodified server on island with the smallest little hut with a moschops, a big eagle thing, a Rex, a turtle, 2 pteranodons, a Tapejara, 2 parasaurs, a trike, a monkey, a beaver, a small raptor, an anky, a small handful of lysta- things that you pet, 12 raptors, an otter, and exactly 48 dodos that are about 500 hp and damage for each one. And after Finn and Spinnerella getting in bed constantly and a lot of incest I have a growing army.) so with all that said get a male and a female Spino, and don’t be stupid like me and getting close to one with a sarco to see its gender. Just get a spyglass.
When in water, the spino can move without using stamina, this means that in a fight, if you run into a deep water source, you don't need to worry about stamina if you need to retreat. Has an oxygen bar so you can't dive forever sadly, very fast in water though.
Better than rexes, I just killed an equal leveled rex with only losing 1/4 th Health nettr than rexes in water and travelling and you can this in broodmother boss fight (due to the water buff and there are pools in the broodmother arena.
