ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
It is a good idea to agro the bird into a closed building to trap them. You will know the bird is about to go down when it starts flying away.
More Argentavis Taming & KO Tips
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!
a few things about argentavis:
1. they are super useful as they have a 50% weight reduction on metal,crystal and obsidian
2. they can pick up medium sized dinos like the parasaur or raptor
3.whenever they eat corpses,they get a rapid regeneration that heals them fast as heck
1:found in arctic and mountain areas which are both dangerous
2: flys slow
3:their saddle unlocks at lvl 62
i spent a lot of time writing this
Use better crosbow or longneck they give more torpor I have a mastercraft longneck and he does 550 torpor.
Do this to dominant the ark
Sorry for bad inglisch
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!
MOST PEOPLE WILL RECOMMEND USING THREE STONE GATES AND TWO DOORS AS AN ARGY TRAP!
I also did tried it to trap a wild 300 lvl argy,but you know? I ended up getting killed by it.The thing is the door closes very slowly and creates time for the argy to escape.
So what you should do is make three stone gate,one door,three stone pillar
Place the three doors in a line , and don't place the door, instead put it on your hotbar.
Now at the last gate place the three pillars right at the center of it , this creates a gap for you to run and not an argy.
Now as usual, lure one into the trap,
Once you escape through the gaps between the pillars quickly run back and place it.
Placing a door is quicker than closing one that already got placed. I tamed the wild one using this trap. It's very effective.
And don't forget to test it before trying.
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!
Looking for the safest way to tame an Argy in the Redwoods? Here's your guide!
Step 1, grab a Pteranodon and fly over to the Red Peak.
Step 2, set up a little camp and build your trap, I used the 5 stone gateframes and the reinforced gates with a bit of space between each
Step 3, find your Argy
Step 4, lead them to the trap
Step 5, hover at the entrance and wait for them to be right behind you
Step 6, fly in
Step 7, the Argy should be in there, and if you have any other tames, aggro onto your other tames until the gate starts to close
Step 8, close the gate
Step 9, knock it out, or do the starve feeding glitch
Step 10, give it any meat, raw meat gives about 10% per feeding so it's not that bad
Step 11, wait for a bit
Step 12, name your new Argy!
Good luck and use this info how you will! I tamed my two Argies, Kokichi and Shuichi, with this
Happy and safe hunting! ^^

So i was looking for a rex for trex arms for my wall mount then i saw a LEVEL 110 ARGENTAVIS up if i should tame it down to murder it without mercy
I killed a lvl 50 alpha raptor in under 2 mins
On one of these
An argentavis can't fit through a ceiling with one tile missing, but a pteranadon or lymantria can. Build a trap with one corner ceiling missing, aggro the argentavis, fly in one side and out the missing ceiling tile, and land. Dismount, run around, and close the entry door. Tame safely at your leisure.
