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 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.
Melee does nothing for turret mode, however increases needle damage when ridden. Will shred anything you aim at.
Has a short range, but a spyglass can be used like a scope.
The attack where it spins around firing needles shreds large dinos.
