If playing solo, be sure to make more bolas than you think you'll need. They travel in packs with the highest level getting an alpha buff. Be sure to pick off the lower level ones before you try and tame, the alpha's attacks will apply a bleed/slow to you upon hit and I can confirm, it's not fun. They will mess you up early game. Once tamed they are a solo players best friend, a mobile and fairly beefy mount. Best of luck survivors!
Bola them first and tranq dart them, anything above lvl 35 will take more than 1 bola lvl 95 and up is going to a struggle if you’ve just spawned in, but great travel mount and great in combat just pump health and melee, stam doesn’t drop that much, similar to a thyla
