Basic Info[edit | edit source]
Dossier[edit | edit source]
Appearing much larger than expected, Acrocanthosaurus is a fearsome carnivorous theropod. While larger than a Rex, it's not quite as strong. However, Acros' seem to demonstrate much stronger attacks the smaller their target is. In addition to this, when an Acro begins receiving damage, Acro resort to an interesting tactic which involves revealing the larger sides of their bodies, mitigating the damage they receive considerably. If they remain in this state the Acro seems to undergo a terrifying enraged state... so be careful. Normally being slower than a Rex, this rush of adrenaline will make an Acro frighteningly fast!
Acrocanthosaurus appear to be immune to the typical method of applying narcotics. I have met few survivors which have managed to tame these beasts however, and they claim that you can knockout an Acro by forcing narcotics down its throat as it gains its rush of adrenaline... no thank you... That being said, I have no doubt a tamed Acrocanthosaurus would prove very useful in combat, if its tanking and adrenaline can be utilized properly.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
The Acrocanthosaurus can be found on The Island, The Center, Scorched Earth, Ragnarok, Extinction, or Valguero attacking anything in sight. When attacked, the Acrocanthosaurus may position itself into a shield stance, where it will then tank damage. If it takes enough damage (35% of its Health, which is calculated before the tanking modifier), the Acrocanthosaurus will roar in frusturation, granting it an Adrenaline buff, which will allow it to attack faster and do more damage.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Color Scheme and Regions[edit | edit source]
This section displays the Acrocanthosaurus's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Acrocanthosaurus. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Acrocanthosaurus will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.
Server admins can use this region information in the Console Command
"cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>".
"cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6" would color the Acrocanthosaurus's "main body" magenta.
Region 2 is not used
Region 3 is not used

KO Strategy[edit | edit source]
Since the Acrocanthosaurus is immune to ranged tranquilizers, the only way to KO one is by feeding it Narcoberries, Narcotics, or Bio Toxin whenever it roars in frusturation. Simply place the Narcotics in the last slot of the hotbar and use E to feed them to the Acrocanthosaurus.
Utility[edit | edit source]
Controls[edit | edit source]
- - This key triggers a simple bite. When the Adrenaline is active, the speed of this attack is increased.
- - This key activates its shield stance. When enough damage is taken in this stance, the Acrocanthosaurus will roar, activating its Adrenaline. Using the in this stance will trigger a shield bash.
- C - This key triggers a side stomp. The damage of this attack is multiplied by a target's Drag Weight relative to the Acrocanthosaurus's Drag Weight. When the Adrenaline is active, the Acrocanthosaurus will perform 3 stomps instead of 1.
- Ctrl - This key triggers a roar.
Roles[edit | edit source]
Tank - While in its shield stance, Acrocanthosaurus will be able to tank damage. While it is taking damage in this state, it will build up its adrenaline stat. Once this is full, it receives a 70 second buff which gives it 2% health regenerated a second, and a boost to damage, damage reduction and speed.
