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...
The good things about this guy is that it can be used as a safe landing parachute. To tame these, you’ll need a lot of patience, a longneck rifle with 5-8 Tranq darts in case you miss. Use a pteranodon and sit on a safe rock and await for the archy to come down the tree. Once you see one of the ground, unmount and knock it out, then feed it the Chitin. The lastly good thing is that on mobile, there food goes down tremendously slow, and chitin doesn’t spoil. So make sure to put lots of chitin in its inventory, I recommend you to use a Pteranodon with this and hold on to your archy and if the pteranodon runs out of stamina, unmount and glide for 5 seconds, then land. Never eland in a dangerous area again
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
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.
I rode the equus that I hated most on the swamp side of the red forest. I waited for 2 if these guys to fall off the tree they were on, one fell and I got on my Equus and he did not see us even though I was next to it. I got out my brows bow and knocked him out. ( he’s level 1 ) I jumped and fed him my 6 chi tin and he ate 3 and was tamed! I got on my flyer and went back to base, leaving my Equus to fit in the red forest. Mainly if I see another archaeopteryx I’ll grab the Equus and tame it. Hope this helped!
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!
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 are hard for me to tame but here’s the steps:Step 1: Get bola tranqs and chitin
(aka bug drops)Step 2:Find archa they spawn in redwoods near and on trees .Step 3 once tamed can be used as a parachute.Step 4:Enjoy your archaeopteryx!😄
