Overview

The Megalosaurus is a playable carnivorous creature in Beasts of Bermuda. It is a fast predator that can chase its prey for long distances without tiring out from stamina. Such prey include the Parasaurolophus, Lurdusaurus and Ichthyovenator, as well as most juvenile creatures.

The Megalosaurus can detect the amount of health a nearby creature has. This lets the Megalosaurus properly decide whether a hunt should be initiated or not, as the health of a creature can determine if a fight will be easy or rough. Additionally, the Megalosaurus can invest talent points into the ability Identification to further enhance its ability to smell, further revealing their stamina, comfort and even ability power. With such knowledge of its prey, the Megalosaurus can easily capitalize on their weakness.

Abilities

  • Primary Attack: A large, outward bite. It deals high damage and has a moderate rate of attack speed.
  • Secondary Attack: Same as the Primary Attack, except it makes the Megalosaurus bite downwards instead of forwards.

Special Ability: The Megalosaurus can gather the information of its prey. When the Ability Key is held down, a cursor will appear on the screen. When it is released, the creature in the center of the cursor will be identified, allowing the Megalosaurus to see its stats. This ability consumes ability power.

Weakness

The Megalosaurus is far from a dominant predator. It is threatened by predators much more larger and dangerous than it, such as the Acrocanthosaurus and the Tyrannosaurus rex, as well as the Mosasaurus if near a large body of water.

The Megalosaurus is also sensitive to harsh storms. It must take refuge from intense storms by hiding in caves, which may already be occupied by another predator.

  • The Megalosaurus is the second most popular predator in the game, with the first being Tyrannosaurus rex.
