To tame an argy first find one.They spawn in the snow area.BUT if u still don’t have fur armory to go get in otter if u still don’t have an otter.Argys spawn in the middle of the red woods mountain.U can trade them or tranc em out by walking under them and fast so it can’t get in then keep trancing it I do that
If you go to the beach opposite carno island (the island in the top right of the map) there will be a lot there. They’re an easy tame (in my opinion) but getting them home with the Dino you used to get there is a pain, especially if you need to stop for stamina. I got like 5 tamed argents killed just from getting home. But today I actually got home with an argent after travelling halfway, stopping for stamina, getting killed by a snake, and then travelling half across the map on yet ANOTHER one of my dinos to go and save my argent and the pteranodon I used to tame it. After that I got back and I was A OK. When taming make sure you bring double the tranqs dododex says cuz when they are too far away you won’t be able to hit them so I’d also recommend bringing a tribe who could aggro the argent and fly back to you, meanwhile you can get tons of headshots and knock it out
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.
The insta tame method doesn't work anymore, I tried may 11th 2020 and I did exactly as said and it didn't work. It was a female lvl 65 and when it was knocked out it stayed asleep. I even waited until it woke up and she wasn't tamed.
For your first, the Northeast Shores, there are a few that spawn there but beware of Rexes, Allos, Carnos and Raptors, also the beach head along the northwest coast, just short of the snow biome. Other than that, they spawn on mountain tops - but that's more dangerous area.
Best advice: Tame a pteranodon first. Kite the prospective Argie to a safe location and into a trap. Tranq with a crossbow (bow can kill) and tame with prime meat, mutton or kibble.
1. Trapper Raft. Must have ceiling and two doors. Pros- can be sailed close to location and tame on water away from potential threats. Cons - initial investment of time + material.
2. Dino Gate trap.
4 stone gates placed sequentially half a foundation apart with doors on first and last. Lure into the trap on ptera and close gate behind you, dismount, close 2nd gate. Cons - exposed to smaller predators during taming. Use spiked wall perimeter.
Use stone, can destroy wood/thatch.
Easy tame, no cheats:
Equipment needed. 10 or so tranq arrows
.lots of meat
.Soothing balm (10x)
All you have to do is fire tranq arrows at Argie keep away but it doesn’t hurt if he attacks once or twice, you can do it however you want just knock it out with tranq arrows (really simple) then place all your meat in its inventory give soothing balm and for me it went from 0.00% taming then I waited for the white line to go up and from 0 to tame it was awesome, only lvl 2 but I will upgrade him myself also try on a low lvl I haven’t tried with a high lvl I don’t have anymore soothing balm.
