Standard tame, similar to a Dodo, except you need Ghillie armor and a bola. Once trapped in the bola, they can be knocked out by just punching them a few times and then they’ll go night-night. From there you just have to feed them chitin to make them love you, but be careful, as their torpor drain is a fair bit hasty so bring any sedatives such as narcoberries or bio-toxin and you should have your fluffy Archaeopteryx bird!
For the people that ask if archaeopteryx can be tame in mobile, the answer is YES. However it seems like Bola or tranq it while archaeopteryx on the ground won't work but tranq it while it still on the tree seems would work. Also bring some narcs or bio toxins cuz their torpor drain a bit fast. I already tamed 2 earlier 😆
They are very fast and will only eat chitin. They run away when they see you or you tranq them. Breeding takes chitin too so have lots of chitin. They hide in trees and I have only seen females so Esther males are rare or I’m very bad at finding them
Their usually found in the red woods, and are often times found climbing trees, but I have seen a few on the ground. If your looking to tame one, I’d suggest getting several bola, and crouch near it, and bola it down, a lvl 50 or so should only take 3-4 darts, anything above that will be more, but they shouldn’t take much. After that or before, grab some chitin, I’d suggest getting 100+ incase, they don’t rot but you never know if you’ll find a high lvl one you don’t have enough for.
If your also on multiplayer and your close to cap, I’d suggest waiting for cap to go off, before fully knocking one out. I made the mistake of doing it with cap and mine starved to death cause you can’t force feed them chitin
These should be shoulder mounts. Disco, my Archaeopteryx from a dungeon, is absolutely amazing. Maybe have the saddle icon for gliding, and the pick-up icon for a shoulder mount? Just an idea. I love this dinosaur.
