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!
Are u tired getting surrounded by a lot of argentavis?
I have some few tips to tame an argentavis
First of lets prepared the food ur gonna need from most effective to least effective
Raw prime meat
Raw prime fish meat
Cooked prime meat
And coocked prime meat
I only reccomend using the kibble or the raw prime meat it wouldnt to have cooked prime meat just incase. Argentavis can be found at mountains and snow biomes, to tame this ur gonna need to build atleast 5 stone dinosar gate way, then lure the argentavis to the stone gateway and close the door before the argy escape, then shoot it with tanq darts or trang arrow as pleasure until its knocked, the second one is a little bit dangerous ur kinda wanna need a mount that can run fast tankie and mount that u can use weapons such as raptor equus or baronyx. Shoot it until its knocked out, the item that im reccomending to maintain its torpor is bio toxin or narcotics. Make sure u maintain its torpor so it dosent wake up until its tamed!
Now for the bonus info. Argentavis saddle can be unlocked at level 62, argentavis is a scavenger means they will only go for a dead animals body....the argy can also heal when u ride it to dead body and it will gain rapid regeneration
I guess thats all i can tell and have ur selfs a very good day
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 for the guy up top with his how to tame guide. (No, I’m not trying to diss you.) You don’t actually need a stone gate. You can just use wooden ones, so long as you don’t leave him in there. Also, you only need three. That’s pretty much all, sport if I came off as kind of a jerk, but I don’t want people to waste their supplies. Good luck!
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.
Every one says you need the Dino doors, You DONT it’s SO easy al you have to do is kill something Agro the Argie the lead it to the body let it eat the body then tranq the fart out of it and then feed it meat no Prime required! Then you have an Argentavis and they are super helpful they can carry dinos and fly long distance and they do good damage I HIGHLY recommend getting one, unless you plan on breeding however then get a male and female and the put on wander. Sorry this was so long I hope I helped y’all!
