Acrocanthosaurus was a large theropod dinosaur which lived during the Aptian and early Albian stages of the Cretaceous period. Like most dinosaur genera, Acrocanthosaurus contains only one species; A. atokensis.
In Real Life
Acrocanthosaurus was around 11.5 meters in length, and weighed around 6.2 tonnes (6.8 tons). Acrocanthosaurus was likely the apex predator of its habitat, preying on animals such as Tenontosaurus and juvenile Sauropoesidon.
Acrocanthosaurus' arms were not very mobile, suggesting that the head was the animal's primary weapon. Acrocanthosaurus likely wasn't particularly fast, based on the proportions of the animal's rear legs.
In The Isle
Acrocanthosaurus is a playable dinosaur. It is nearly as big as the Tyrannosaurus, but presumably slower. It is much more powerful than other theropods like the Allosaurus, a close cousin. Acrocanthosaurus is also part of the Bleeder Branch, a branch of carnivores the specialize in massive bleed. While alone, you must only hunt small to medium sized prey that have very few defences but when in a pack, you can hunt prey that are dangerous like Triceratops, Stegosaurus, and, if the pack is large enough, Shantungosaurus. The only prey items you cant really hunt are Ankylosaurus and Puertasaurus as the Ankylosaurus can do huge damage to you and break your leg and the Puertasaurus can not be killed by any carnivore and will kill you very quickly with one stomp.
- High bleed
- Can take down medium-sized prey on its own
- Faster than most dinosaurs, quick trot
- Strongest carnivore other than the apexes
- Intimidating size
- Can break bones (low chance)
- Large size means it can be seen easily
- Cannot sneak very well
- Low stamina
- Somewhat weaker than it appears

Behind The Scenes
Carcharodontosaurus and Giganotosaurus were originally going to be alternate skins for the Acrocanthosaurus. Ultimately, however, Carcharodontosaurus instead became it's own thing, with Giganotosaurus being an alternate skin for it instead.
