This has been said before but I'm writing it a tad differently than top comment, this is the method I use in solo play. These are a very easy tame if you have any type of fabricated weapon. Find an Argy that's away from the group, aggro it, then kill something else with a sidearm or assault rifle while it's attacking you, get near the dead body and when it attacks you (and hits the carapace) it'll get green health buff above it's head.
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.
This is the best thing you can get in ark. It can transport items and dinos really good for attacking me and my friend have just got a level 124 one and a 54 one and we killed an alpha raptor in 2 minutes XD
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.
While they may be intimidating at first, the Argent is fairly easy creature to tame. Get three wooden dinosaur gateways and two gates and place them in a straight line, only leaving spaces big enough for a human to fit through and close one of the gates so it can't follow you straight through. Jump on your other flyer, be it a pterosaur or even another argent borrowed from someone. Lure the agent a couple of feet away until shes lined up just right and then sprint off behind the gate. Jump off your flyer and wait till shes in the trap, then run around and close the gate. After you check the area, tranq away and soon you'll have your very own argent
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.
