Antarctopelta is the first armoured dinosaur known to have lived in Antarctica, though it should be pointed out that when Antarctopelta lived there, Antarctica was not covered in snow and ice. Antarctopelta was a kind of dinosaur called a nodosaur which means that in life it would have had a squat quadrupedal profile. The back and sides of Antarctopelta would have been protected by a covering of bony armour called ostederms as well as possibly some spikes so that the teeth of predatory dinosaurs could not get through. This was a similar survival strategy as that used by the closely related ankylosaurids, but as a nodosaur, Antarctopelta would have lacked a tail club.
Revenge Instant Ferocity
Resistant to speed decrease (50%) and vulnerable (100%)
Looking at Antarctopelta’s stats she comes across as fairly average and not at all what I would expect from an Epic rarity. As for her abilities she seems to be a typical ankylosaur/nodosaur but with a nice instant ferocity ability. The problem with Antarctopelta seems to be that without that instant ferocity her damage is too low for an Epic in my opinion. Even with it, she doesn’t quite do enough. I think that unfortunately, Antarctopelta is going to be a DNA farm for her hybrid Antarctovenator.
Antarctopelta is not going to be of much use in Raid’s I don’t think although maybe she might be okay for the right tournament. What do you think?
