Ive seen a couple pass by, but the description scares me, and that small % chance of it deciding to go ham and killing the person trying to tame it isn't exactly good for my health and well being.

Are you playing modded? My thrumbo got a pila into the brain when an entire tribal raid charged her, but it only left her with minor brain damage. Thrumbos have 130 hitpoints in brain, so a vanilla sniper rifle shouldn't even be able to kill it with two headshots unless it's a baby.

Either way, losing a thrumbo that way is really unlucky.

1 Shot to the head killed it? ;-; That's some seriously overpowered sniper rifle... what was it? A bloody Glitterworld Railgun?

Probably using combat realism. They go down fast with that mod.

I had a thrumbo pass by, once. He went apeshit and took my handler's head off with 1 hit.

I actually tamed TWO thrumbos once.  I had to gun them down, stick them in a couple of cryptosleep caskets then make a pen for them.  Took for freaking ever and I was using that cybernetics mod to make my tamer better.  Of course this was after I had actually bought one from a trader.
