The Megalosaurus is a medium-sized, playable carnivore in Beasts of Bermuda. It is very fast, currently being only slower than the Parasaurolophus while on land. It has a rather heavy-hitting bite that can rapidly do damage. Its health and size are medium. It is capable of running and chasing down most other creatures in the game, but must be wary as it has a reduced stamina pool.
Unique Abilities: The Megalosaurus is able to scan its opponents, seeing their stats and singling out the weakest individuals as its prey. When the Ability keybind 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 the current stats of its prey. This will portray the current Health and later down the road with invested talent points: Stamina, Ability Power, Food, Water, and Comfort as well of the chosen target. This ability consumes ability power, regardless of whether or not it hits anything.
Other Facts: Megalosaurus lived in a habitat dominated by island chains surrounded by shallow seas. The developers reflected this in the Megalosaurus's talent tree. While primarily a terrestrial hunter, the Megalosaurus can transform into a makeshift fisher with the right talents. This allows it to have access to fish during times of scarce food, while most other carnivores would starve. The Megalosaurus is essentially a jack-of-all-trades, able to adapt to situations with ease and always beat the next obstacle.
It is capable of jumping, but only a very short distance. This allows it to avoid getting stuck or snagged on some terrain areas but offers little advantage otherwise.
It also has a fast metabolism, and must regularly hunt to avoid starvation.
There are several unique builds for Megalosaurus:
- Mobility Build - investing in speed talents allows you to our maneuver your foes and traverse the terrain easier
- Power build - become extremely strong and increase your health and injury damage
- Swimming build - allows you to leave the land for extended periods of time to fish
