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!
I really don’t know how to tame one because I found mine at a swamp and I only tames it because it got knocked out by a snake but these guys are amazing! It drove of a SPINO that was near my base! I had to heal it of course but my trike was only on lvl 7! So I recommend to get one!
Charge to put stun effect on small to medium dinos. Has a small def and dmg buff when fighting rex, spino, giga. Major dmg reduction to face good for light soaking. Takes normal dmg to everything thats not the face. Sluggish. Can get picked by quetz. Deinosuchus can latch on. Raptors can pin you off. Good at getting thatch, berries. Important dino to have when starting.
Triks are the best, I wiped out whole Redwoods and most arctic with my lvl 130, gained alot of xp by easily completing all missions, can even explore for notes without danger in the deep jungles and kill Rex (lesser than 150 though) very useful...
Never forget about the request function when you click/tap your tames in your inventory, cant find your tame? Request it, although it does drop all the current items that tame has,(excluding the saddle it has equipped) it’s good for retrieving tames that you cant seem to find, also keep in mind that the request function has a little timer bar to when the tame gets teleported to you.
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
