When knocking out an angler you absolutely must use a primitive crossbow and be very patient. Most of the time knocking them out will get its health very low and a a tranq arrow from a much stronger crossbow might kill it on the last hit
Be really care when knocking these things out from a distance! Unfortunately they don't look knocked out when they are so continuing to shoot darts at them can be an easy an unfortunate mistake to make.
- Main use for this tame is using the Angler as a "lure" for other anglers kill anglers for their gel. The gel is the longest burning fuel in the game at approx. 6 minutes per 1 gel
- secondly use is a light source underwater
