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 Velonasaur taming details, get the taming calculator app.
You don’t need to trap this to tame, it’s a solo tame. If you run up to it, it will go into turret mode then you need to walk circles around it and keep hitting with tranq until it eventually tries to walk away *in turret mode so really slow walking*
Screw the giga. This is the most OP creature in the game. Pump all levels into stamina, damage, and health. They will literally kill everything in their path. I also recommend putting them on a quetzal. Boom. You get a legit badass fighter jet with infinite ammo.
Their ranged attack is bonkers, I went from worrying about every nearby predator, to gunning down everything I don't like.
They burn through Stam fast in turret mode, but they can run forever.
We won't know for certain if their melee damage increases their needle damage until the dev kit releases, or until someone shows conclusive video proof.
Tame one of these and have a blast.
Breed about 8-10 of these bad boys and you can solo an element node/orbital supply drop fairly easily. Just do not attempt one unless they are 120 or higher. You can do the easiest ones with lower, Like 100-, but do not go over like, medium, and make sure to imprint them all, it helps. (They love cuddles. If they request kibble that you don’t have, Cryo them and throw them out again, they will most likely want a cuddle again.)
The Velonasaur is a living turret in ARK: Extinction with a unique turrent-like spike-shooting attack. It can be enabled while you are not riding it. It also has the ability to swing its body back and forth to attack preys.
