Overview

The Pteranodon is a playable flying creature in Beasts of Bermuda. It is the fastest and most mobile creature in the game, able to soar through the skies at incredible speeds. This lets it able to access areas no other creature can reach, such as isolated landmasses and steep, high mountain peaks. However it must be careful occupying these locations in certain weather conditions, as it is extremely vulnerable to lightning strikes and windstorms. During these events, the Pteranodon must take refuge in a sheltered location.

As for its diet, the Pteranodon is piscivorous. It will often plunge into the ocean to catch fish - but it's not limited to eating just fish. It can become a scavenger, feasting on decaying meat if enough points are put into the scavenger talent, as well as being able to kill other creatures by launching a deadly aerial assault from the sky. With its greatly adjustable diet, ability to fly, and fast growth time, the Pteranodon is recommended for those just getting started with the game.

If the Pteranodon makes contact with a tree, rock, hillside, or another animal's attack while flying, it will be knocked out of the sky and slam to the ground. It will likely die from such fall damage. Should the Pteranodon be alive, it will have suffered heavy injury damage and lost a portion of its health.


Abilities

  • Primary Attack: A fast bite. The damage is based on how fast the Pteranodon is moving, with higher speeds resulting in more bite damage, and slower speeds dealing considerably weaker damage.
  • Secondary Attack: Same as the Primary Attack, except it makes the Pteranodon bite downwards instead of forwards.

As with other piscivorous creatures, the Pteranodon can hold the sniff key to highlight nearby fish.


Additional Notes

  • The Pteranodon's flight mechanics were inspired by the Pteranodon of Primal Carnage: a combat game where humans and dinosaurs do battle.
  • The Pteranodon's current look is not finalised! The Pteranodon model shown at the top of this page will replace the current model sometime soon. New sounds for the Pteranodon are also currently in the works.
