Comparison to other heavy knockouting weapons

Creature Ballista Bolt Boulder Rocket Propelled Grenade.pngRocket Homing Missile (Scorched Earth).png Rockets Cannon Ball

Rock Elemental N/A 6 360 1800
Karkinos N/A 437.5 1250 11250

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Titanosaur and Rock Elemental can most effectively be knocked out by shooting Cannon Balls at their head. The Karkinos, on the other hand, should be shot in the body.
  • The Cannon deals much more damage to structures than a Catapult Turret or Ballista Turret.
  • Damage vs Dino ~ 1800(just did it last night) per shot if you miss the part you need to hit
  • 450 if you hit the torpor marker(head/body), so be careful, you can EASILY kill a Rock Elemental by missing just a couple shots
