Strategy Guide/Tips[edit]

  • Plesiosaurs are often found in pairs.
  • The Plesiosaur is one of the hardest creatures in the game to tame.
  • A Plesio won't chase you to the surface. Try luring it to an underwater cave entrance instead. Have one person keep the Plesiosaur aggressive while the other fires arrows into it every five seconds.
  • Plesios have a very good carry weight
  • A Plesiosaur is fast, it can travel twice as fast as a Megalodon.
  • Plesiosaurs are big and have a lot of health.


  • Despite what its name suggests, the Plesiosaurs are NOT dinosaurs. They are reptiles.
