The Kronosaurus is a playable aquatic creature in Beasts of Bermuda. It has incredible short-range dashing speed, making it a profound ambush predator. However, its sprinting speed is very mediocre in comparison to other aquatic creatures, somewhat limiting its ability to chase its prey.
Nonetheless, it is regarded as one of the strongest predators in the game, as it can instantly cripple any target with a single lunge, lowering their mobility and preventing any kind of escape, all while the Kronosaurus continues to slowly maul its victim with its bites.
Pros and Cons
+ High damage
+ High injury
+ Brief bursts of incredible speeds
+ Very High health
+ Can dive to great depths, resisting depth pressure sickness
- Slow swimmer
- Can die from beaching
- Horribly vulnerable when young
- Missing a Lunge can be very expensive. Both in Ability Power and strategical sense
- Primary Attack: The Kronosaurus performs a slow, but very powerful bite. This attack costs a high amount of ability power.
- Secondary Attack: Upon holding down the secondary attack button, an icon appears on the screen resembling an empty bar, which begins to slowly fill up; The Kronosaurus is preparing to lunge for massive damage! The more the bar is filled, the more damage it will do when unleashed. While charging, aim can be adjusted with the movement keys. Upon letting go of the secondary attack button, the Kronosaurus launches forward, severely damaging and injuring anything it rams into along the way.
A charge will automatically be unleashed if ability power runs out while charging.
The Kronosaurus is the largest creature with access to the Elusiveness talent, which lets it become almost invisible to other players at the cost of ability power (60 ability power at stage 1, which decreases by approx 10 for every stage upgraded). Kronosaurus players favor this talent, as it eases the difficulty of growing a juvenile Kronosaurus in the midst of predators, as well as serving as an ambush tool once adult stage is reached.
Kronosaurus, as with all other aquatic creatures in the game, suffers heavy mobility loss as well as comfort drain when beached. Additionally, the Kronosaurus is considerably slower than all other aquatic creatures in the game (except when lunging).
Failing to land a hit with a Lunge could potentially spell death for Kronosaurus of any size. Exposing yourself to your foe, costing Ability Power — And if you use it recklessly, the powerful speed may even Lunge you far inland and get you beached!
Lastly, and most importantly, it is one of the most vulnerable creatures as a juvenile, as it is both weak and slow.
- The spammability of the lunge was once an issue. Though its sprint speed was slow (as intended), its ability power regeneration was very high at older stages of growth, allowing the Kronosaurus to continuously use the lunge ability with little delay so it could catch up to fast creatures. This is no longer possible due to an ability power regeneration nerf. However, the Kronosaurus is still able to reach unbelievable lunging speeds as an adult, so don't ever be fooled thinking a Kronosaurus has lost you in a chase - it may just be still charging up its lunge!
