If you go to the beach opposite carno island (the island in the top right of the map) there will be a lot there. They’re an easy tame (in my opinion) but getting them home with the Dino you used to get there is a pain, especially if you need to stop for stamina. I got like 5 tamed argents killed just from getting home. But today I actually got home with an argent after travelling halfway, stopping for stamina, getting killed by a snake, and then travelling half across the map on yet ANOTHER one of my dinos to go and save my argent and the pteranodon I used to tame it. After that I got back and I was A OK. When taming make sure you bring double the tranqs dododex says cuz when they are too far away you won’t be able to hit them so I’d also recommend bringing a tribe who could aggro the argent and fly back to you, meanwhile you can get tons of headshots and knock it out
To insta tame a argy first you gotta die and respawn then give it just enough torpor but it's still not asleep then drag your body and let it eat the body then knock it out its hunger will go down instantly so it will any type of food then you have an argy
You can insta tame it by making it attack you and it will harvest a body then knock it out when it has the health increase stat (green thing around its head)then once it is knocked out I will tame automatically, HELP THE BOBS
If you lose your argys go to the place that shows your character press the tames button which says how much animals you have, Look for your argys name press request, then wait. It will tp to you, if it’s alive.
Short Taming Guide:
1) Go to East beach by giga mountain (North 1 / East 3).
2) Set up the argy trap on the beach (4 stone gateways with one gate at each end).
3) Place down some beds for back up.
4) This area often has argys flying around on the beach, so if you see one shoot it with an arrow and lure it into trap.
5) Tranq it using body shots mainly.
Please note this is a guide for those who lack a flyer or tame which can get them to more dangerous argys spawn zones.
If an Argy you’re trying to tame is spawned in a dangerous spot (A place where lots of predators also spawn and could possibly kill the creature you’re trying to taming) Set up spiked walk around the area, so predators get killed or hurt when they walk too close to the spiked walk) This usually works for most predators.
For ark mobile: traps are not required for low levelled argies, just keep a friend or two with you and tranq it when it's attacking you, using toxicant arrows is better, it will go down in just 4-5 toxicant arrows.
You need this following things.
x4 stone gate way
x2 stone gate way doors
Place the 4 gate ways in a file make space in between the gaps so that you can go though. Place the 2 gate doors on each side. Leave one open and lure the argy in the trap ( try to take some hits so it does'nt lose interest). Once the Bird is in slip though the gaps that you made. go to the opened gate doors and close it as fast as you can. Ta da there your trap.
Extra. Try to shot at it from a range it can't attack you. Make sure that theres no bad things beat it. Chose a safe spot to tame. If you are confused go search. How to make an argy trap.
