ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
The anky is one of the best games in the game for metal,it has a weight reduction on metal and is relatively easy to tame, so how do you do it? The anky is extremely slow so you can easily outrun them and shoot while looking back once at a safe distance. If you want to tame a high level anky, consider building a trap for them,this will stop the anky from fleeing. Most low to average level ankys can be tamed with mejoberries but you may want to consider making kibble for a higher level one. If you find yourself struggling still watch a tutorial online-hippo🦛

Shoot it in the face whilst going backwards there to slow to reach you when it runs away go in front of it and carry on shooting it in the face with tranqs. Vote ⏫
How to tame a anky!! :O
This Guide applies to The Island only.
First of all, let’s talk about the utilities of a Anky. They are amazing metal gatherers! It also has a weight reduction to metal. So any time you run out of metal, (which for me i run out of metal all the time) use an anky!
Now here is what you need to tame one:
- 10-20 Tranq arrows and a bow/crossbow (varies on the level)
-Berries and/or kibble
A couple notes about taming:
You won’t need any bolas, but if you want you could bring a big bear trap. Even though it’s unnecessary.
Also It’s torpor drops really slowly. So narcotics aren’t usually needed.
Now you maybe be wondering, where do I find this dude? One spot is on herbivore island. It’s way on the right side of the island. On your map it sticks out in the ocean. Another place is the Red Woods. And only go there if you are DESPERATE. It is near the area where the swamps and red woods meet. There are tons of other spots and you can find them on YouTube
Now how do you tame a anky?
Well once you have gathered all of your items you will need need to find your anky, shoot it and walk backward while shooting your tranqs. It won’t take very many tranqs, depending on the level. But then its knocked out! Now feed the berries or kibble of your choice and boom! You have a anky!!
My name is Etheral and my last tip was on the Carno!
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.
Pump melee granted your going to encumber faster but the metal you get out of a rock is higher
If you think the mountains are too dangerous
Just go to the Herbivour Island
Its the small island in the south east of the map
Don't let your stupid tribe mates touch these. Ive blown through seven in a week.
For a low lvl player a lvl 1-45 is good enough to get you going but when you get the kibble a lvl 116-120/150 should be your main goal. High damage means more metal per hit & weight is your 2nd most useful stat to carry more. P.s taming a lvl 145 ankly now ;)
They are very slow and can't turn around very easily. So come up behind one and shoot it with tranq arrows. You should be able to knock it out before it turns around and attacks you. But don't get too close!! Watch out for other Ankylosaurus too. They are travel in herds
Slow mobility makes this dino a sitting duck. Keep a little distance and you shouldn't have a problem. Crossbow preferred.
These guys aren’t the fastest walkers but man in the water they are super fast I learnt if you use the attack ability while in the water it makes you go slightly faster
