Basic Info


  • Wild: Carbonemys obibimus is not a bellicose creature, it has a simple lonely life and hasn’t attacked anything yet. Frankly speaking, Carbonemys is one of the most friendly and peaceful animals that you have ever seen.
  • Domesticated: With the swift swim rate, reasonably high strength and sufficient real threat, Carbonemys is a great aquatic mount for several coastal survivors. You can ride on it to the resources at a quite high speed, and it’s not too perilous to domesticate.
  • Known Information: Fast swim speed and thick shell are the things that can make it secured. Not surprisingly to witness a Carbonemys withdraw into its shell just to be safe and sound from the aggressive predators.


Carbonemys is a neutral reptile, and willing to battle if being assaulted or you loot one of their eggs. Similar to Stegosaurus , they will safeguard other Carbonemys. When being assaulted, this creature will give a punishing assault. However, there is nothing too deadly. The low movement speed will permit them to kited or annihilated for meat. They have lots of health and need an amount of time for killing.


Carbonemys are big turtles, when they stand, they are even higher than Human. There is a carapace on them, which can help them withdraw easily. The shell is filled with spiny scales, the skin of feet and tail is improved by firmer dander. The only tender location on it is the lower neck. You can use their pine strips as a cutting tool. Their eyes are usually small, most of them are red.

KO Strategy

You shouldn’t get involved in a battle with this spikey and well-armored creature, you will lose for sure! But you can check out other methods to defeat it down! The best one would be utilizing a Scorpion and/or Tranquilizer Arrows, if you don’t have any, you can use a Slingshot to perform a trick. On the other hand, you can jump on its back to dodge the damage. It can’t attack you, when you get on top of it, you can punch or shoot to knock it out.

  • 8 – 22 Tranquilizer Arrows if used properly.



  • Tank: This is a wonderful tank because of its high HP and natural protections. (Level up in Health and Damage)
  • Water Mount: A great mouth after the Ichthy to ensure safe passage traversing some land and lots of water (Level up in Speed, Stamina, and some Health)
  • Transport: While being slow, it has a great base that carries capacity. It’s quite quicker in water; you can use it for local or water transport. (Level up in Weight, Speed, and Stamina)

  • Carbonemys is Greek for “Coal Turtle”.
  • You should use a slingshot to knock them unconscious if you want to kill Carbonemys in the early levels. Get ready for an amount of stones. You probably need to shoot a lot to make them senseless. Next, you can freely slay them without any issue. Don’t waste your spears when you kill a stunned creature.
  • There is a possible chance to believe that Carbonemys is not a true reptile. This totally counts on if turtles are anapsids that have no holes (temporal fenestra) in the sides of their skull, or diapsids having two holes in the side of the skulls.
  • When mounted, there is one thing that the player should know, the model needs to develop to an extremely big size to suit the saddle of turtle, which counts on the original player model. A player can increase its size while mounted.
