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 Tusoteuthis taming details, get the taming calculator app.

The Tusoteuthis's taming method differs from most creatures. Please ignore its interval and time calculations.
They have huge hp pools, however they can get so swarmed by anglers that they get trapped inside and cannot be hit and slowly kill it. Keep a plieso or 2 on following and they can help keep your hitbox open.
Read this, it might help you:
1: The best place to encounter tuso is 90-91 lat and cover all longitude from red ob to the end of herb Island.
2: Don't solo search, make a party and cover full bottom of the map.
3: Don't search in shallow water and surface, go for mid and deep sea.
4: They need to grab your tame then only can they be tamed.(Take Carbonemys with health and speed pumped)
5: They take 50 black pearls per serving.
6: They only agro in deep sea.
7: Last and the most important, the server must be brutal or their chance of spawning is not that much. Put server to brutal and for one day atleast go killingspree in ocean to open spawn spots for tuso.
8: Pump only melee and health to tuso.
When not having this guy yet and you hop on your mosa, there’s a high chance they’ll suddenly spawn a couple yards away from you. What’s scary is that this guy, although should stay only on the Deep Ocean region is able to cross the barrier (on mobile at least, I do not know for the others) and is as fast as an encumbered(not red, not really encumbered, as in not even over 90% encumbered) mosasaurus. Wherein in mobile, the plesiosaurs are the fastest(it seems) with mosas second and this guy. Not even a speed-trained icthy will be able to outrun it. All are as fast or even faster than the giga on land. Scary if you have no plan to tame it. Can grab mosas, nearly every creature except the basilosaurus and some others. Don’t escape up, escape linearly from where you came from. Let it get stuck between every rock you know. I encountered my first tuso a few days ago. Traumatized by the speed, good thing’s I’m on my mosa and ran away. It is way, way bigger than a damn mosa. Seriously scary.
The Tusoteuthis is a massive, aggressive squid found in the depths of the oceans. In battle, the Tusoteuthis can grab its prey and knock it unconcious, siphoning its blood to gain health. Once tamed, the ink from a Tusoteuthis can be used as a constant Oil source. Some survivors choose to hunt the Tusoteuthis for its Oil.
