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 Pteranodon taming details, get the taming calculator app.
If you find a level 5 one of these and gonna tame make sure you have 2 prime meat if it's normal all settings is normal and prime meat gives it 50% taming thing please up this so people who want this can see it
They are a great beginner flyer. I got one as my first bird ever and made a saddle it was great. Not that good for mid game and endgame tho. Really easy to tame to. Just bolla it and shoot with tranq or slingshot.
So in my experience their torpor runs down quick so once u have knocked it out u definitely need narcotics. I recommend bio toxin cause it easy to get and it didn’t drain the health like it says. All u need to do to get bio toxin is lure jelly fish to the shore and shoot them with a bow, or cross bow from under water. Hope this is helpful to my fellow survivalist.
Start off by throwing a Bola at it. If your target is lower than L30, a slingshot will work fine, otherwise use tranq arrows. Aim for the head to deal max torpor and minimal damage. Tranq users, be sure not to shoot your tame after it's unconscious. Feed it meat.
The Ptera has 3 moves it can use, only accessible while flying.
1. Swiping up on the left side triggers a grab motion that deals no damage. You can pick up Dilos, compys, lystros and dodos this way and carry them with you. They cannot damage you while being held, but they can deal damage when you grab them.
2. Tapping on the left triggers the basic attack, a stab with the beak.
3. You will want to reconfigure your controls for this. I suggest setting Right Multi-tap to "Reload/Alt Attack 2" in the Game Controls. That said, this triggers a barrel roll that deals significant damage but also costs a lot of stamina. Use it for a burst of speed or to finish off an opponent.
The pteranodon is a fast and versatile flying mount useful for traveling and scouting, though not always the ideal choice for battle. Knocking a pteranodon out doesn't take much, but can still be a challenge since it will immediately flee after being attacked. Once knocked out, taming is quite easy in comparison to other creatures, and with its low saddle requirements, this makes it an especially popular creature for newer survivors while still being versatile enough for more experienced survivors. What the pterandon lacks in stamina, weight, and health, it makes up with its speed.
