ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
By far, the easiest method (in my experience) for taming one of these little guys is this:
Beforehand, prepare about 50 narcotics, as it doesn't take too long to tame a lvl 150. You'll need either chitin or Pelagornis kibble. I would just use chitin since you only need about 80 or so for a lvl 150. Next, you'll want to have a bola. I would craft at least 3 in case you miss. Once it's tied up, go ahead and tranq it with tranq arrows or darts. You shouldn't need more than 20 tranqs. That's taking into account how often you may miss. But since it's tied up, you'll have far more than you need afterwards. I suggest letting it starve all the way down, and then putting in the chitin. That way your resources arent vulnerable until the last second. Wait a little bit, and you should have a lvl 150 Archa. Enjoy :) (Lower levels follow the same method with less resources, I simply used 150 as the example.)
More Archaeopteryx Taming & KO Tips
Fun fact, archaeopteryx was very important for it was the creature that confirmed the theory of birds being linked to dinosaurs. 🙂
IS AN ARCHAEOPTERYX WORTH IT?
It is in my opinion cause it’s a very easy tame and good glider. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME GETTING A PARACHUTE! These are very fun! However getting down from one is difficult,But otherwise get one very easy. Steps below
1. Get a bow and a tranq arrow
2. Get 1 narcotic 1-5 for levels
3. Kill a scorpion and get the chitin
4. Knock out and feed chitin
5. You have a living parachute
So now you what good it is, it has downsides as well:
Very hard to get down.
The place it is located is very hard and dangerous.
BUT. They can collect sap and other stuff.
Is it worth it? YES IT IS!
I forgot to mention this but it is found in the redwoods.
I see the Otter God, the Jerboa King and the Defender of Bulbdogs made an early move. Now I the Archaeopteryx Lord shall rise. If any one of you guys kill these birbs I will look for you and feed your soul to the ravenous birbs I own. So if you see one my birbs Naruto running away for you, DO NOT kill it instead be its friend, they are a great parachute and they are wholesome creatures to begin with. So you have be warned by the Archaeopteryx Lord...
Knocking them out is simple as long as they don't see you otherwise they will climb higher into their current tree. They will also glide to other trees if scared too much. One shock dart makes even the highest level. Bola's or Net projectiles suggested.
Hi there! Just wanted to share a quick tip for mobile players!
So basically these birbs are kinda bugged on mobile so you can't shoot at them with tranqs whenever they're on trees. So I suggest y'all to simply wait for them to get on land and then shoot them (One tranq dart is enough, normally), or you can just bola one then shoot it. Just keep in mind that you just CAN'T shoot them while they're on trees.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you've found my tip useful!
Standard bola, 2 tranq arrows and feed chitin
Can be used as a parachute
People say its not on mobile tell that to my glider
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
It only eats chitin. Make sure to put chitin on them for food. Breeding also only takes chitin so make sure you have plenty.
