Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Brute Basilosaurus appear similar to the normal Basilosaurus but are larger.

Color Scheme and Regions[edit | edit source]

This section displays the Brute Basilosaurus's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Brute Basilosaurus. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Brute Basilosaurus 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.

This information can be used to alter the Brute Basilosaurus's regions by entering cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID> in the cheat console. For instance, cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6 would color the Brute Basilosaurus's "body main" magenta.

Wild Stats Level-up

Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding-stats with an external tool.[1]

The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps

Note that after the creature is tamed it gets bonuses on some stats depending on the taming effectiveness. This makes it hard to retrieve the levels on a tamed creature, so this tool is only for wild ones, but gives a first impression, how well the stats are distributed.

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Brute Basilosaurus.

General[edit | edit source]

The Brute Basilosaurus appears as a minion in the mission "Chasing the White Whale." While it is intended to assist the Brute Leedsichthys, they just passively wander around and pose no threat to the player. They are fairly durable so they take some time to kill, though this can be done after the Brute Leedsichthys has been dealt with. Right now it's suspected that this behavior is just a bug which may be fixed in the future.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Since the Brute Basilosaurus doesn't attack back, just do everything in your power to attack and kill it.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Any strong creature can do this task since you don't have to worry about taking damage. If the player has a very high quality Sword and good melee damage, that would also suffice.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

The only danger the Brute Basilosaurus currently proposes is to soak up your time on the hunt. They will also wander so far and teleport back to the main fighting area, and should you leave the area, the Brute Basilosaurus may recover all its health.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

It's slow and won't attack back.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Interestingly the Brute Basilosaurus is the only creature that doesn't carry over it's X variant for the Brute variant but instead uses the variant used in older maps.
  • The Brute Basilosaurus is probably the most realistic interpretation of the creature it’s based on in the game: aggressive and very dangerous, unlike the peaceful representation which is completely inaccurate
