Ark Creatures: Brontosaurus

Basic Info

Dossier

With this dossier section, you will learn some information about the creature, which was written by the author named Helena. There are probably some differences between this text and the in-game creatures.

Wild

Among giant creatures I’ve seen on the Island, Brontosaurus lazarus is larger than any sauropod I’ve read about. In fact, the dinosaur is so massive that it serenely ignores most other creatures.

I’ve seen a pack of raptors tear apart small dinosaurs while Brontosaurus continues eating, seemingly oblivious to the hunting pack.

Domesticated

Because of how docile it is, the Brontosaurus makes for an ideal pack animal. Peaceful tribes use it to carry incredible quantities of resources, while warring tribes use it to mobilize their army. Its size and strength make it one of the unique creatures on the Island that can support a “platform” saddle. Unfortunately, its enormity means that the process of taming a Brontosaurus can take a very long time.

Some may think this is an Apatosaurus, Dreadnoughtus, Argentinosaurus, or some other sauropod, but this is a strange Island, and I’m the one doing the research. I’m convinced that this genus is Brontosaurus, and no one can tell me otherwise. My study, my rules.

~ Helena

Behavior

Brontosaurus is not a hostile creature, however, it can dish out damage to the survivors or other dinosaurs by stepping on them if it gets provoked. Tail swipe will be another type of attack that it does. If it’s a mid-level player, the creature will deal 1 or 2 hit death. The tail swipe dishes out more damage than the stomping. It also possesses a long reach. Brontosaurus is armed with a big amount of health, you should take some ranged weapons or high-level hunting dinosaurs with you if you want to kill one Brontosaurus.

Appearance

The Brontosaurus is a colossal sauropod dinosaur, and you won’t mistake it with any other species in both size and appearance. You can usually catch sight of it alone or in small groups. Thanks to its size and strength, this creature is invulnerable to predators.

Color Scheme and Regions

In this part, you will see the natural colors and regions of the Brontosaurus. You can see the red regions below on an albino Brontosaurus. The colored squares displayed below every single description of the region are known as the colors that this creature will spawn with at random so as to give a general range of its natural color scheme. You can move your cursor over a color to see the name and ID.

This region information can be used by the server admins in the Console Command “cheat SetTargetDinoColor ”.

For instance, “cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6” would be used to color the body magenta of Brontosaurus.

Drops

Harvest

Guaranteed Special Loot

You need to get access to the inventory of the dead dinosaur if you want to get the Sauropod Vertebra.

Due to the gigantic size of the Brontosaurus, they release huge quantities of Raw Meat and Raw Prime Meat. Due to this, destroying a Brontosaurus is kind of great for a carnivorous effective tame, such as a Rex. That is, before it spoils because of its quick spoil timer. You are highly advised to destroy a Brontosaurus close to your tame so the prime meat won’t spoil.

Base Stats and Growth

Note that creatures will have different stats in Survival of the Fittest

Wild Stats Level-up

If you want to check on which stats the creature is emphasized, you need to type in values of that wild creature. Normally, the green levels on a creature at a high level are kind of great for breeding. If you have already domesticated your creature, you should try to regain the breeding-stats with an external tool.

Bear in mind that after you have tamed the creature, it will receive some bonuses on some stats relying on the taming effectiveness. This will cause it to be difficult to recover the levels on a domesticated creature. Therefore, you only use this tool for the untamed ones. However, it brings you a first impression, how well the stats are given out.

Taming

Check out the taming section to find out how to domesticate a wild creature.

KO Strategy

Using a Scorpion, Tranquilizer Arrows, or Tranquilizer Darts would be the perfect way to tame the Brontosaurus. However, if you have none of them, you can utilize a simple Slingshot to do the trick (1000+ stone).

Make sure you launch your attacks to this creature from the peak of a tall, steep cliff, by doing so, you are able to assault it while staying out of range of its strong attacks.

Position and form a wood or stone foundation using 3 wood or stone walls and wooden one door. Above the initial player, you will position 4 wooden frames without any doors. Then, you stay inside your shelter and shoot it. When it attacks you, it won’t dish out damage to you, just your shelter.

You should ask a friend to pick you up with a flyer then let him fly you over the creature. From there, just simply shoot it. Ensure that you and your friend are staying high enough so the creature is unable to damage you.

You are able to fire the Bronto while you are riding another land mount then quickly kite it to a more secure zone for domesticating.

You are able to run faster than the Brontosaurus backwards. You just walk backwards facing off the creature, then use your Tranquilizer Arrows to shoot it.

Combat

In this section, you will know how to fight against the Brontosaurus.

General

The Brontosaurus possesses the second highest health pool of any herbivore just right behind the Titanosaur, also it bears the similar base damage to a Rex. The attack of this creature has a large range as well as big knockback, making it a hostile and dangerous creature when being riled up. You should elude it unless you find it necessary to assault. In addition, make sure to elude assaulting small creatures, like Dilophosaurus, when it’s near a Brontosaurus because you could accidentally hit the Bronto, making it aggressive.

Strategy

If you walk on foot, make sure you keep a distance! Their tail-sweeping assault has a very large range, which helps it easily knock you out, also, it can assault the animal and knock it off slopes of cliffs. They can get stuck behind the rocks and cliffs as well as shot at safely. Using a powerful mount can help you beat the Bronto with dedicated attacking, however, you mount needs to put up with a high amount of damage. Using some big carnivores, like Rex, Spino or Giganotosaurus can help you destroy a Bronto easily, as long as you won’t make a mistake during the course of the fight.

It’s kind of effortless to destroy a wild Bronto even if you are at a lower level. You just simply draw its attention, then sail it out into deep waters that is far away from land. When you sit in the raft seat of the pilot, it won’t realize your presence, you should get it further away from shore than it is able to swim back in order to drown it. It will sink until it dies!

Weaponry

It’s never a good idea if you assault the Bronto with melee as it has large damage and knockback, which makes it very hard to reach it. You should utilize a ranged weapon or a powerful dinosaur to cope with the Bronto. Aside from that, you can use a Ballista on a raft provided that you have enough bolts.

Dangers

The attackers will be thrown back by their tail swing, and probably they will be off ledges and cliffs. If you are not fast enough to regain the distance before it attacks again, you can be held back by the Bronto easily. The legs of this creature are also able to deal huge amounts of damage to the players very quickly, therefore, make sure that you won’t get caught underfoot, or else you may end up dying easily.

Weakness

Although it has a massive range, this creature doesn’t have a fast movement speed and attack rate. Because of its massive size, it can get stuck behind cliffs and big boulders easily. Also, it will try to withdraw when getting wounded, where it won’t attack back but can still dish out damage if the players are right under it. But, you should keep in mind that, from the front, their tail strikes either to the left or right and you can elude that tail attack by strafing the opposite direction fast. If you follow this technique, you will find it easy to destroy a Bronto without soaking any damage on foot with a bow or crossbow.

The Bronto also experience some troubles when trying to hit you if its back is attacked by a flying mount, like the Argentavis. If you use your flying mount to attack it, you should aim to hit the backside of its head.

Riding a Bronto can result in another Bronto following you. Even when you are at maximum following distance, the extended neck will frequently clip into you, demanding you to dismount and having the dinos follow you for a bit.

Utility

Roles

Tank: Thanks to its high HP, the Bronto can become a decent tank. (Level up Health and Melee Damage)

Damage: Extremely great AOE and base damage! Too slow to hunt down the prey! (Level up Melee Damage, Stamina and Movement Speed)

Transport: Although it’s low, it has the third best base carrying capacity, therefore, it’s very ideal for local transport. (Level up Weight, Movement Speed, and Stamina)

Gatherer: It’s very great for collecting materials. If it’s told to assault near plants, you will surely earn a large amount of resources. (Level up Melee Damage and Stamina).

Mobile Base Platform: Utilize a Platform Saddle to form a mobile base on the back of the Bronto. Structures have no influences on the weight capacity of the dinosaur, but storage does. It will grow weight if you use it for transport. (Level up Health, Movement Speed and Stamina).

Wall Defender: Kind of handy in PVP! It can be a nice strategy to keep away players if you put your Bronto by your outer walls. Weight it down and keep it by the walls so it can be in the right place that you want. (Level up Health and Melee Damage)

Notes/Trivia

To get more information regarding the real-world Brontosaurus, click [here] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brontosaurus

The full name of this creature means “Helpful Thunder Lizard” in a literal way.

Brontosaurus is known as one of the endgame berry farming machines that you surely want to possess. You can utilize their assaults to battle against big groups of bushes to pick up more than a hundred berries. Depending on your area, you can totally farm and gather more than 1500 Narcoberries in just one in-game night. In addition, because of their large weight capacity, they can’t transport large quantities fast, but they can move them very effectively.

The tail assault of Brontosaurus is very broad, it can get to almost its head in a 180° whip in the direction you are facing. You should be careful when you utilize the tail attacks to gather berries, as you probably hit a flock of Triceratops, making all of them assault you, and it can cause the Bronto to be overwhelmed.

The dossier wrongly places the time period of Brontosaurus as the late Cretaceous when it actually existed in the late Jurassic. Nevertheless, the dossier also recognized that it can be another sauropod like Argentinosaurus, and this creature did appear from the late Cretaceous.

The Brontosaurus is so big that when it stomps on smaller creatures, like trilobites, meganeuras, or dodos, it dishes out damage to them and sometimes destroys them. This may be problematic a bit, particularly when making your way through swamps, as you can sometimes step on Meganeuras, which destroys easily and makes some of them assault you at a time. Just only one tail attack, all of them can be killed, which brings you lots of experience points.

The skull of the animal that was displayed in the dossier is not the skull of Brontosaurus but Camarasaurus. This shows that there may have been an inaccurate name
