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.
I had a trick and I named it rody..but after a few months I got a higher level trick and than I thought of unclaiming rody....GOODBYE RODY ILL MISS YOU BECASUE YOU WERE THE BEST STARTER I EVER HAD IN MY LIFE. (Also dinos die after unclaiming them..) UP THIS FOR RODY😭😭😭😢
A great early game tame. Find a low lvl, 5-25 ish, and find a steep hill or rock nearby. Then, proceed to either pelt it with rocks or fill it with tranqs. Once you tame one, then getting narcoberries and mejoberries for another trike or another tame, such as an iguanadon, of a higher lvl now that you have the resources for them
I like the idea of the trike spear but I think it should be called the trike glaive because the spear and pike have a more straight metal/flint tip but the trikes horn is curved and the glaive tip is more curved like the trikes horn so credits to the person who made the trike spear
Who thinks these should drop “trike horns” they can be made into a trike spear needing the following things and does same slightly more damage than pike but has not great durability and can be thrown. Also it + bio toxin = tranq trike spear. More than tranq arrow more than dart less than shocking dart.
1 trike horn
Requires spear and pike engrams.
This took looong to type please read the whole way thru.
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.
Trikes are one of the best starter tames you can have. They’re tanky and also hit pretty hard. Combined with their knockback, you can easily kill small to medium sized predators like raptors, carnos and sarcos. They also have a buff when large carnivores are in the vicinity. They’re slow but have great weight, and you can use their charge to run around the map. (Imprinted trikes are relatively fast). Trikes are also great berry and thatch harvesters.
Their slow speed also makes taming them pretty easy (just remember to kill the other trikes in the area first). For low levels, you can use slingshots to knock them.
Trikes have great good knock back, so long as you take pauses between hits, you can regenerate stamina. Also, if you need to, you can tank some hits if you need to. My trike was able to fend off some accidentally attacked pachytherium, and he still lives to this day. This can apply for creatures like titanoboa and raptors, so it’s a handy trait if you need to.
If you use the charge attack in a forest, they will get a lot of thatch but will get encumbered so beware of predators. Also, the turning radius is increased when charging and you can’t get berries when charging. Maybe this is helpful for lower level players. Thanks for reading and make sure to try it out
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
