The Training Dummy is a structure used to show the damage value.


Placed on ground or structures, then struck by player or mounted dino. It first shows the damage per hit as a bare number. In the background it calculates damage done over 5 seconds, divide by 5 and then it shows the damage per one second as "DPS: something".


  • The Training Dummy will not show any damage values if Friendly Fire is disabled (i.e. Server configuration is set to bPvEDisableFriendlyFire=true).
  • It seems that the training dummy shows dino damage to thatch structures, and not dino damage to other dinos. For somewhat accurate dino vs unarmored dino results, divide damage by 6.
  • There is a bug that the training dummy doesn´t show the DPS number, instead the floating text will just say " {DPS:}"For more information on Paint Regions and how to use them, please view the Blue Coloring.png Dye,  Paintbrush, or  Spray Painter pages.
