ARK's base taming speed on PC, PS4, and Xbox is now doubled, meaning 1× is as fast as what 2× was previously. Dododex has been updated to reflect this. Use the "presets" dropdown for common multipliers.
For full Astrocetus taming details, get the taming calculator app.
To tame an Astrocetus, you must first knock it out using a Cannon mounted on a Tek Skiff. Use the Tips feature to share your Astrocetus taming strategy!
Singleplayer taming is so hard. I had nobody to aim the cannon, and I'm currently waiting for the astercetus to wake up. I struggled so hard. He's a blue level 8. LEVEL 8. Dododex says there's a 93% chance of death for the cannon for a level 8.. Pretty lucky, eh? Singleplayer taming is.. Hard. Not impossible, though. I managed!
We can only be tamed with a cannon on hover skiff,
We won't like you and give you a good wiff,
We'll attack and whack, but we're smart as a tack,
Can be easily tamed with meat,
And singleplayer taming isn't sweet.
This thing is the ultimate warship. Its saddle has three gun turrets that consume element when shooting. It has a bomber mode that drops a cluster of bombs below it, consuming ambergris as the ammo. It can pretty much warp you and your nearby allies instantly. Plus it has a platform where you can build structures, similar to the platform saddles we’ve seen on Quetzals, Paracers, etc. The platform space is really small, but definitely workable.
