Overview

The Mosasaurus is a playable aquatic creature in Beasts of Bermuda. It is an incredibly powerful and mobile predator capable of leaping out of the water to reach its prey, then locking it tight between its jaws before violently thrashing it into the water, dragging it down into the ocean depths in order to drown it and thus kill it.

The Mosasaurus is able to grab almost any creature its size, and can further bolster its grabbing capability through the use of talents. Due to this sheer size range of creatures it can grab, combined with the nearly impossible chance of escaping its locked jaws, the Mosasaurus has been well-received as one of the most feared creatures in the game.


Its biggest rival is the Kronosaurus, who is also an extremely deadly aquatic predator that competes for the same food source.

Abilities

  • Secondary Attack: A long-range dart attack, similar to Ichthyovenator's, that causes the Mosasaurus to rocket forwards, inflicting damage to any creature it comes into contact with during the duration of the charge. Younger mosasaurs may have trouble performing this attack due to its high ability power and stamina cost.


Special Ability: The Mosasaurus can grab any creature that is small enough to fit within its grabbing threshold. While pressing the ability key within a short distance of a creature (default ability keybind is Z), the Mosasaurus will snatch that creature in its jaws. Upon pressing the primary attack key, the Mosasaurus will thrash the creature in its jaws, dealing damage. Continuously pressing the primary attack key will cause the Mosasaurus to continue to thrash as long as it has sufficient ability power, which will consistently decrease as the victim is held. The larger the creature grabbed, the more ability power is required to thrash and hold.

Weakness

With the simple mistake of beaching itself, the Mosasaurus can suddenly turn from threatening to harmless. While on land, its diminutive flippers do little to scoot its massive body forwards, causing it to move and turn at a painfully slow rate. Comfort constantly decreases at this state and predators can easily kill it, so it must get back to the water as soon as possible or it will inevitably die.

The Mosasaurus also faces active threat against the Kronosaurus, who is capable of killing the Mosasaurus just as much as the Mosasaurus is capable of killing it.

Additional Notes

  • Kronosaurus is much heavier than Mosasaurus and tops it in terms of raw damage.
  • While the Kronosaurus is adept at hunting other aquatic creatures, Mosasaurus relies mostly on terrestrial prey.
