You don’t need to trap this to tame, it’s a solo tame. If you run up to it, it will go into turret mode then you need to walk circles around it and keep hitting with tranq until it eventually tries to walk away *in turret mode so really slow walking*
Their ranged attack is bonkers, I went from worrying about every nearby predator, to gunning down everything I don't like.
They burn through Stam fast in turret mode, but they can run forever.
We won't know for certain if their melee damage increases their needle damage until the dev kit releases, or until someone shows conclusive video proof.
Tame one of these and have a blast.
It's right click shotgun attack has been nerfed severely, I'd recommend focusing on melee and stam to make sure you can gun down everything in sight, because at close range it does not have a reliable melee attack anymore, other than its very weak claw attack. Be careful as a group of Allosaurus can get rid of your newly tamed velo if you aren't careful.
Make a 2x2 cage with ramps and a door. Lure the velonasaur in with a flyer. If you stay close to him he won’t enter turret mode. Leveling melee raises his projectile hit points. Also level stamina to attack longer. A high level can shred everything I’ve come across. Can’t wait for an imprinted one for the speed bonus.
It's about the size of a carno with a machine gun head, can easily take out dinos with its ranged attack. Stamina depletes pretty fast in turret mode, can go long distance running, can't regen when in turret mode (on dino) and seemed to be squishy against other velenasours (didn't have a saddle on). Very fun dino, like really fun.
