1-2 tranq darts in head and he’s knocked, go get some meat and kill some of those jellyfish and get bio toxin then put the bio toxin in it and feed it until the argies hunger is on 1000 or less then put all your meat in it
If you need an argy and don’t have time to tame one with a trap, just go to carno island, kill a Dino in front of an argy and let it harvest its body. When the green health icon shows up on top of it, knock it out with tranq arrows and the argy is instantly yours.
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.
Just finished my first tame with 10-12 tranqs to the head. My mesopithecus came in super clutch, poo throws really helped me kite and allowed for super easy headshots. Used about five narcotics to keep him down.
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.
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
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.
