ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
What is a triceratops used for? triceratops battling strategies in ARK: Survival Evolved.
Utility Roles for Trike:
1. Tank. When faced with head on damage, they have a damage reduction. Be sure to pair with mate for extra damage resistance (level Health).
2. Short Range Scout. The Trike is not very fast, but again, due to the damage resistance it has (and it's just general beefiness), it can serve as a good scout for early game. Much better than the Para in that regard (level Health, Stam, and Movement Speed).
3. Harvester. This boi can collect quite a decent amount of wood and fiber, much more than you can by hand. Use with Charge attack for extra resources! (level Weight and Stamina).
4. Defender. Use him to defend your base and smaller tames. Really the only early game threat a Trike can't handle are alphas and the occasional Theri. But trust me, I've seen one of these things face down a Sarco and live (level Health and Melee Damage)

I can not stress enough to my friends how useful the trike is. Early game it makes a great pack animal. Late game in groups of three or four it can be used as a decent battle mount. Taming a trike early on can be a great way to start a large base and keep you well fed with berries.
A triceratops is a very special dinosaur in this game. It is easy enough to tame at a low level, yet powerful enough to take on raptors that could kill you easily. It can collect enough berries that you would never go hungry again, and still have some berries leftover to help tame more trikes. They are very slow but it can make up for it if you increase the weight, attack, and stamina stats. It is an extremely good pack animal because it can carry a lot, but still defend itself, especially if it is in a large group. Overall, the triceratops is one of my favorite and most versatile dinosaurs.
Definitely a tame to get in early or Midgame Lvl 30-60. if you still haven't got any good stuff or strong companions to protect yourself then you should probably get a triceratops. This thing is a beast. A tanky killing machine. I was able to dominate the whole island than I can't before. When I got this beast, it carried my in-game progress, I leveled up faster because I can kill everything except those Spinos and other Stronger dinos. Your survival rate is higher with this beast on Medium difficulty island. The areas like Swamps and at the Large trees is a no problem for you. If you get a high level Of this guy like 70-100, dominate everything you want. Put alotta points in health and melee and Mount this bad boy and spam attacks on the dangerous monsters you encounter on some areas, you'll be safe. (Avoid Spino, Dire bear, Alpha Dinos, Etc.) Lastly, Don't be confident to who you charging at. (Up for newbies to see.)
it has descent health and can charge a "charge" attack boosting speed and allowing you to turn enemies into dessert aslong as you have a advantage in levels, can be annoying to tame because they are tanky, and can dish out alot of pain AND often stay in defensive groups making these guys a pain to tame if you have little experiance.
5.1 because it can take alot of hits, can deal alot of hits, and because i didnt point out it harvests berries pretty good because im lazy.
Tamed my first one not to long ago after multiple attempts (it fell into a trap I placed before I could lead it there myself). It's even more op when it comes to farming wood then my tek parasuar (RIP teky). One attack in a grove of trees gave several hundred wood and over 2k thatcher.
What I recommend doing is getting at least two trikes (preferably one Male and one female to get a mate boost), then setting them at your base to serve as defense. If you do this, be sure to invest in melee damage and health. Don't forget to pick up a third trike for exploration purposes!
Jurassic Bio: Triceratops
Name means: Three Horned Face
Period: Late Cretaceous
Description: Triceratops is *one of* the most famous, and easily recognizable dinosaurs. While people may think that Triceratops used it’s horns as a weapon, they actually used its horn to only intimidate predators, and compete against other Triceratops for a mate or territory.

When tamed these a guys are great early game as they have high carry weight and good speed and if you get a high level one it gets high stamina, speed, hp, melee damage, and weight and the charge can stun enemies which is helpful for fighting big things that can get in the way.
I strongly recommend everyone to tame this creature and pump stamina weight and a little bit of health and speed as this will turn it into the perfect all around useful mount it's knock back effect , his ability to farm berries and if his weight is high allows him to carry ultimate amounts of resources and survive most predators
