Easiest technique I've found is make a taming raft all you need it to build a raft, 3x3 stone floor, 2 high stone poles in all 4 corners, put stone ceiling all the way across the top so 3x3 above that, then use door frames all the way around except in 1 spot to fly the argy in, then opposite whatever side you leave open by one put 2 ceilings extending out, then put a ceiling over the whole thing. If an argy is following you it'll fly sleightly higher than you, fly under the hole you made and the argy should fly right in, land your Petra or any other flyer on top, drop onto the extended ceiling and tranq that mother in the face!
If out of tranq. arrows you can actually just knock it out with a slingshot. It’s pretty easy to tame: just give it raw meat or prime meat (or actually kibble if you want it quicker) and a bunch of narcotics. Ta-daa! You tamed an Argy. If it helped, click on the arrow pointing towards the sky!
To tame one easy all you have to do is kill something so the argent Avis can eat, and while it’s healing you must knock it out with tranq arrows or darts. If it is knocked out while healing it’ll starve immediately and it’ll tame in seconds no matter what level!
Heya guys! I’ll share some of my tips to tame argys, if you want you can knock out a low level with a slingshot but i recommend waiting until you unlock the tranq arrows and stone dinosaur gates.
How to trap them!
You can do this with a pteranodon or on foot! So you’ll need 4 stone dinosaur gateways and 2 stone dinosaur gates, put the stone gates like this! The | represents the gates. “ | | | |” BUT!! Key thing! Make sure that the argy cannot fit through but you or your tame can. Then, Lure an argy over to your trap and open the door, then go throu the sides or the top! (Top if your using a pteranodon).Then go to the door you let the argy in through and close it! Boom! You trapped the argy :D. It may take a few trys, but its ok!
Knock out and tame!
If you want to use tranq arrows make sure to have an 5 second timer before firing the next shot! Its too make sure you dont kill the argy and if you have a spy glass its better so you can check on the torpor just in case you accidentally hit it when its knocked out! Their preferred food is stegosaurus kibble, i will put the recipe here! Required engrams: Cooking pot, water skin. Recipe: Stegosaurus egg, citronal (you can get it by planting the seed) Prime meat jerky (put cooked prime meat into a preserving bin with oil) 2 mejoberrys, 3 fiber and 1 waterskin. If you are using the kibble, you can use a minor balm! But if you are using raw meat or prime meat, you should use an soothing balm! I reccomend doing the lava cave since you dont need a tame and can just speedrun it, take off all your gear and go in the cave, take all rights and if you are on casual you can just grab the artifact then die and spawn near the obelisk! I reccomend putting down a bed at the obelisk. The lava cave also gives you good rifles, crossbows and pistols! So now, put a sleeping bag down and sleep, this will starve the creature so the taming process is shorter! Then knock out the argy, and put your soothing balm in, and the food of choice and wala! You will soon have an argy. Make sure to protect the argy and kill any predators nearby that can hurt it!
Uses and utility!
The argentavis is very useful, having good speed, good weight and good hp and damage. Its a great mid game tame as its saddle unlocks at level 62. Its one of the best metal gatherers as you can level weight and carry an ankylo to harvest metal. I once had an argy, his name was mocha and he was really good! 10k hp, 1.2k weight, 1k melee damage, we killed gigas, alpha rexes and titans together! The argentavis is a very good flyer, only beaten by the queztal by weight and pteranodon by speed but they are still very balanced in term of stats and are great pvp units. Apologies for this being so long, i hope you all the best of luck taming!
Hi! It's astro again, leaving tips on dinos that you may want to tame.
The easy way on taming an argy/Agrentavis is to build a trap with dinosaur gates (Mostly stone regular dinosaur gates, not behemoth.) You place the gates in a row leaving you enough space to run out of the side. you put 2 doors on either side of the trap !!NOT ALL THE GATES. JUTS THE 2 ON THE ENDS!!, You will open the side with the argy, and keep the other side closed. You agro the argy, and run into the trap, and as it follows you, you're going to run out in one of the side cracks, loop around to the open door, and shut it.
Then you tranq the argy and hope for it to knock out. Then you feed it Prime meat, raw meat, mutton, or kibble (best ones)
If you run out of tranq arrows, do not panic, the argentavis' torpor is very low and will not drain a lot. Go back to your base, make more, the go back and keep tranqing. If your base is far away, ask a friend to keep come over with arrows and bring them to you.
Why is the argy good? Whats its purpose?
Well the argy is very good for carrying items. It has a reduced weight thing with stone, metal, metal ingots, and more. It will split it in half, making the difference by carrying twice as more to your base than needed
