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.
It is really an easy but worth tame. Have a crossbow and some tranqs (have a lot of tranqs incase of emergency). Shoot it in the head not their back. Dnt stand still, look if there are it's part ners or not then walk back and shoot. Eventually they get knocked out. I would recommend a little narcotics and berries bcz they are cheap. Ta daa u tamed it.
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 ;)
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
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
