This guide will help you grow and survive as one of the most formidable dinosaurs that has ever lived, and in The Isle.
Allosaurus in General
Allosaurus is probably one of the best dinosaurs in-game because of their all rounder stats. Thus, they may not be the best at some things but they are not bad at all. So if you’re new and want to start with a tanky-ish quick-ish dinosaur then this is the one for you.
So you spawn in as a juvi Allosaurus. Now what?
Well, considering it takes 3 hours to fully grow your dino its best to just camp at a lake. Twins is definitely not a good option, and Titan lake is also a no-no. You’ll need a secure lake that has a lot of food and few predators (although most lakes in the V3 map has both.)
In between Twins and Docks is a pond where I usually grow my Allos. It gets dangerous at times (Utahs sitting on the rocks, apexes walking in and out etc.) but its also where many juvi dinos also head. If you plan this lake then the best strategy is to wait until you get to a certain size and kill anything you can get. After you’ve gotten a meal, get a drink and run to the trees and camp (this goes for every single lake). You may need to eat many times before you grow because of the juvi metabolism.
Once you’ve become a good sized juvenile, no other fresh juvi dino can overpower you. Now you can pretty much feast on whatever small thing has ventured too close to you.
It’s not hard to grow to an adult. You just need to time yourself in every hunt.
Another thing is to NEVER venture out at night (this goes with pretty much every other juvi dino). Curiosity killed the cat, and it’ll do the same to you. Its best to hide at night and stay there unless you need food and/or water. This is the time when dilos and large predators hide out in the trees ready to ambush. Other than that, there’s not much to it.
Congratulations! You have successfully grown your peewee little juvi into a medium sized monster. But your journey doesn’t end here.
One mistake many Allo mains make is thinking they are ready to take on the world the second they grow. Sure, there’s not a terrible size difference between you and a fully grown adult, but there is a huge stats difference. A fresh adult Allosaurus only does 75 dmg and 10 bleed, compared to the fully grown Allosaurus that does 300 dmg and 25 bleed, you need some time to actually become a bane of existence to anything that’s the same tier and lower than you.
There are many things to watch out for at this point. You’re no longer easy pickings for single Utahraptors and Dilophosaurus, but you are easy prey for Ceratosaurs, Carnotaurus, T. rex, Giganotosaurs and even packs of Utahs can be very deadly.
At this point, you need to use a similar strategy as being a juvi: Hide out and ambush unsuspecting juvis and AI taking a drink. Don’t even think about hunting mid tier dinos like yourself until you are at least 90% grown.
Well well, it seems you have grown to your full potential. Rexes and Gigas are still deadly as ever to you, but now you can out run and out ambush them.
Remember when I said you had to watch out for Ceratos and Carnos? Well now they have to watch out for YOU. But first, we need to explain what you can attack now that you’re fully grown.
Ceratosaurus: This is possibly one of the easiest things to kill if you’re good enough. An experienced solo Allo can easily clap a full pack of Ceratos. Considering you’re reading this guide because you’re not fully experienced, its best for you to understand this opponent. Because Ceras have an incredable turn radius, if they tail ride you, you HAVE to Z walk and snipe em from their tail the second you get the chance to get the hit. Otherwise avoid tailriding completely because you’ll most likely die. Just hit and run. Once you’ve hit it, your target is pretty much screwed do to their bad bleed resistance.
Carnotaurus: Well, consider that this thing is the fastest dinosaur in survival mode, you might as well ignore them because they can actually be pretty deadly. If you are attacked by a single Carno, it’s best for you to bite when it charges for you (again, you might wanna Z walk). Carnos are bleeders like you, so they hit and run. You do more bleed and overall dmg to them so they most likely might back down and run away.
Dilophosaurus and Utahraptor: I placed these guys in the same place because in order to kill them, you have to ambush them from the trees or the dense foliage. Nothing to it.
If you are attacked by a pack of Dilos, its best to ambush and kill one in order to deter the rest (same with Utahs).
Maiasaura: Being faster than you, you might wanna ambush them from the trees. Once you’ve got the hit, just chase them till they scumble to the ground from bleed or surrender.
Any small sub adult dinosaur: They simply don’t stand a chance against you depending on their size.
Suchomimus: This is the part where an experienced Isle player will call me an idiot, but lets say you and your Allo packmates got a kill and a bunch of Suchos steal it. Once it’s night, you can hit and bite through the mass ball of Suchos and they will back down. You’re night vision isn’t the best but if you know where they are this will work (will only work at night because in day a pack of Suchos can easily decimate a pack of Allos).
That’s pretty much it for what you can target. A pack of Allos can also kill apexes but I wouldn’t try it even if I was the best Allo player in the world. 🙂
