  1. Do they ignore you on the frog or just it. On other mounts they attack and hit both you and the mount your riding, so if they still come after you on the frog it doesn't help much. And we would have never guessed that you have to swing a weapon to hit something with it, we'd all be lost without you. Listen the problem if you'd read any of the posts or the OP edit is that the hitbox doesn't work at all in 1st person view and requires you to switch to third to hit them. If you play only in 1st then you never figure out that it's even possible to hit them.
  2. In Ok I found something that works every time. KillAOE wild 2000. seriously though it appears that they don't have a hitbox in first person view but do in 3rd person view. You cannot hit nor farm them in first but can in 3rd (good source of meat and hide btw). In 1st view you only need to be in ankle deep water or so to be ignored, 3rd requires l deep enough to swim. Tames deal with them pretty well but you have to be able to deal with them to get to where you can tame stuff. It seems like they come in waves and after you deal with a up to two dozen groups you get a break for a little while. So starting out use 1st person to hide in the water and heal, then switch to 3rd, dart out on land with a torch and kill for a bit until you need to heal/stam regen, then switch back to 1st and retreat to water. Rinse and repeate until the wave is clear and then set up your base, get set up to tame, clear another wave, tame a body guard dino or two, and you'll be set up pretty good to deal with them. Unfortunately it looks like this dlc was set up to be a giant kick in the balls for getting started with a new character.
  3. Hmm...with me when they hit me the floating dmg number is zero but I do take health dmg and will die in about 30 seconds if standing still. Water keeps them at bay as long as its ankle deep or more, torch doesn't do anything. I cant do dmg to them with any weapon so far and as I always start a new character on maps I don't yet have any tames. They glitch right through my base walls and hit me so at best I get a minute or two to try to do chores/craft before I get chased back to water, makes creating weapons, narcs and tranqs tough. I will test bug repellent if I ever get farming up but I don't hold much hope.
  4. On ps4 we had to go find a separate free download in the ps store for genesis part 1 to play. The season pass apparently does not give access to the game by itself.
  5. Insect swarms Has anybody figured out how to deal with the insect swarms that constantly target you? I've basically just spent all my gameplay time standing in water waiting for wave after wave to die. Not fun. Edit: Ok I found something that works every time.

  6. Yeah I'm thinking this may have been planned on purpose in order to pick up new sales on PC from people like me who own the game on console but own PCs. If you look on steam the base game, season pass, and bundle are all on around half off sale with the sale ending on the 13th....the expected day of release on console. And extinction isn't on sale but the season passes are, so those whom already own the game on pc pay full price but those buying it for the first time have an incentive to do so. Before I just thought it was just a possibility that the pushing of the game back was a purposely calculated tactic for sales but that sale makes it look really bad.
