Bring plenty of meat and have multiple bolas ready to go because chances are you will run into more than one. We went out hunting for hide and found not one or two, but four all hanging out on top of a hill. My partner had not caught up yet and the first one went agro. Threw a bola, hit second was already agro and jumped on me. She destroyed almost all of my armor before my partner caught up and freed me. The second ran off into the woods and we thought she was gone. We were unloading meat onto the first unconscious raptor when the second returned and killed my partner. I wasn’t fast enough with the bola to save her, but I did manage to tame the raptor while she was distracted. We ended up pulling 3 out of 4 raptors out of that hunting trip. The fourth ran off into the woods after somehow escaping the bola and never came back. We named the highest level Blue and the one that killed my partner (ICKitty) Kiki for Kitty Killer.
Just tamed a level 122 on Dead Island no kibble and only a few narcs on me. Had to fight off a scorpion and a sabertooth to keep from it waking up. As the tame was close to finishing I was attacked from behind by two scorpions and they knock me out. As I'm getting attacked by them and I am sure that I am a goner, the raptor tames, gets the them off of me, and kills both of the scorpions. I wait in horror as my consciousness returns, hoping that I am not going to die to a patrol. I didn't, and I turn around and see a Rex almost close enough to aggro me. I put my raptor on follow ran to my raft, and escaped the island as the Rex was chasing me. I named him Saving Grace on the way back, but as I am passing the swamp, a sarco attacks my raft. It knocks my beloved raptor off, and it was swarmed by the sarco and a group of megapiranha. I try to call it to follow, and it dies almost instantly. I am utterly devastated and heartbroken...... :'((
Try to stay in flat open land, this allows you to easily snare the raptor with a bola. Approach slowly until it runs straight at you then throw the bola at it. Once hit with the bola you can easily KO it using any method you choose.
Use parasuar kibble for faster and higher level tames if possible since you need less than 30 kibbles for a perfect 100+ level tame. It may also be easier at lower levels since gathering meat can sometimes be difficult and parasuars are easy tames.
