KO Strategy

It’s kind of hard to defeat a Parasaur because they will sprint very fast if they are under attack. To knock it out, you should try to make it grind to the halt between the rocks or trees and then only strike it so hard. However, you should stay watchful when hitting it, just don’t get it damaged after knocking it out because that will have an influence on the taming effectiveness.

Or you can check out another way of defeating a Parasaur; this way will include utilizing the bola’s on the legs that will disable it easily. Doing so will make it stay still, and you can strike it, or shoot at it using the slingshots, after that, it will be completely knocked out!

Alternatively, you can utilize many players in order to lure it into a zone so that it won’t make an escape, which can bring it to the rocks or any structures.


This part will illustrate how to battle against the Parasaur.


Battling against a Parasaur won’t cause any innate threat because they will escape away once they get irritated. While trying to chase down a Parasaur, it can lure you get into the dangerous realm, which is considered as a principal danger of trying to knock out a Parasaur. If you loot their eggs, they will begin to battle against you


The most effective way for battling against the Parasaur is to begin with a Bola attack to the legs, which can disable the creature and help you stun it easily using a Wooden Club, or the spear. The Parasaur will escape away when frightened if you don’t start with a Bola, then after that, it normally makes itself grind to the halt between the rocks or any trees, which causes it to be defenseless once again. If you have no bola engram, you can try to set yourself away from the location that you want to frighten the Parasaur like an alley or the trees. This can help you destroy the creature quickly. You can utilize arrows, shoot them at it or use the spears. It won’t be able to escape away. Also, you can utilize a Dilophosaur to destroy this creature since Dilo won’t cost much. The running speed of Parasaur can be reduced by a small group of three or four Dilophosaurs. Then, you can begin striking it with a spear and defeat it by the time it regains.


You can utilize any weapons to defeat a Parasaur, provided that your weapon has maximum efficiency. You should utilize the melee weapons skillfully, try to fire a direct assault right onto its head to get larger damage. Using the ranged weapons can help you defeat one while chasing down it.


The Parasaur can get into dangerous locations when you chase it down, which will develop the danger of getting other perilous dinosaurs angry.


Since Parasaur can crop into other dinosaurs, you probably think that sprinting into them right in the middle of chasing using a mount will make the Parasaur fasten into place. Or, due to their low health, escaping nature and big size, they can become an easy target for a survivor at any level.



Transport: The Parasaurs can become a great pack animal for a newcomer even though they can’t bear many supplies like other bigger creatures do.

Travel: The beginners of the game should get this Parasaur and use it as their mount, but it’s kind of tough to drive into a corner because they can escape away easily. Although they are not as fast as Raptor, or Sabertooth, they are still much quicker than Phiomia. You should think about leveling up its speed and some oxygen

Gatherer: Apparently, the Parasaurs can collect berries, wood, and thatch, however, they do those stuff at a slow speed, and also, it’s a bit hard for them to strike a bush.

Dino-Clamp/Parasaur Hunter: Due to the tiny footprint of Parasaur, it can crop into other untamed Dinosaur’s hit boxes and then fasten itself in there. If you want to crop into it, you need to drag up side by side to it, and then revolve 90°. Doing so will permit you to destroy the creature easily. It’s kind of less dependable when you lock other dinosaurs in one place; you can even fasten a Trike and use tranquilizer arrows to shoot at its head from afar where it won’t be able to shake to get you or your Parasaur damaged.

Diversion: One usage for this creature is to get aggressive and direct away tribe’s tames throughout an attack. Be sure to have your spyglass ready. You will control a Parasaur and make it attack an opponent dinosaur, then make a sound for it to assault an untamed dinosaur from afar. Because Parasaur are not costly for domestication, they are such a nice choice for the regular deadly role.




The meaning of Parasaurolophus’s genus name is “near crested lizard”, relating to Saurolphus which is a creature that Parasaur was first believed to be a close cousin of.

The kind name of Parasaurolophus in the game, amphibio, can relate to the kind affinity for water, which is normally caught sight of on the seashore or nearby rivers.

Similar to other hadrosaurs, this creature is believed that it can stroll on two or four limbs. It probably will spend its time walking on four limbs, swallowing or traversing long distances.

When it wants to stretch out higher to the grass or run at a fast speed to flee away from the predators, it will reach onto its back limbs.  The Parasaurolophush in the game can probably be able to walk by utilizing its back limbs.

A Quetzal can hold this creature up.
