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.
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!
Trikes are a great harvesting mount for berries and thatch. They also have good attacks (which do knockback to smaller dinos.) My favorite attack is the charge attack. I use it to raid wood/thatch bases. Overall great mount!
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
Triceratops is a very strong tame in early game, they can kill an Allo, Carno, Sarco, A pack of Argentavis, Megalodon, and anything that is strong, but only when you mount it. But Trike is very slow, so always upgrade their movement, make them follow you, and when you encounter a strong dino, mount the Trike and kill the dino.
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
