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.
The gathering rating says that brontos are best for thatch but it’s not true a bronto collects 50 to 70 thatch per tree while trikes get 60 to 75 per tree so tame them if u need thatch instead of brontos
You can have more than one person ride it because it's a big mount, have one person stand on a trikes back and another use the saddle and have 2 people on it. Me and my sisters do this to get around a lot. Hope this was helpful!
When tamed or in the wild, these Trike’s receive a rivalry pack buff if there is a threatening large predator nearby like the Rex, Giganotosaurus, And Spinosaurus(check the wiki for more large predators). This pack buff increases the Trike’s health and damage.
The best way to utilize the trike when tamed or untamed when tamed it can gather loads of berries for you or when it's untamed you can use it as a shield for instance like a carno is running after you and there's a trike try to run for the trike to get the carno to fight the trike so you can escape unharmed
