1. Get tranq arrows and a crossbow
2. Find an anky of your desire
3. Shoot it in the head while walking backwards (they're slow so you can just walk while shooting)
4. When it runs away chase after it and shoot it
5. It'll be knocked out.
6. Feed it recommend food and any narcos if needed.
They get about 3x more metal than you! And depending on the level they can easily kill Raptors and other small predators.
They're found almost everywhere
Beaches, highlands, chalk hills, green forest, I've even see some near desert.
The Ankylosaurus will not attack you in the wild unless you attack first. When battling you can run away quite easily, just be aware, they have high health, so if you plan to kill one make sure you have enough stamina and resources to kill them.
An ankylo (leveled in melee) and a quetz or argy (leveled in weight) is the single best way to farm metal. Just pick the anky with your bird and drop it on metal rocks. Then get on the anky and hit the metal rocks. The ankylo’s weight does not matter since the bird carries all
Everyone knows that these are great for metal but they can also harvest berries very well with the alternate attack button. They are also the best around for harvesting flint, so are great when you’re looking to make a lot of gunpowder.
I took a short trip to herbivore island on my raft bearing tranqs narcotic and carrots I tamed an anky but then the question became how do I get it back to base so i put on the saddle rode on to my raft and came home with the new anky
So for the Anky, bring Mejo berries, and a few narcotics, and tranq it while running back as it chases you. Keep in mind that these are very slow, and outrunning them is an easy task, but also keep in mind that the health on these tanks are rlly good, so if you plan on killing it, good luck. I hope this helped!
