Easiest and safest way to tame this is to lure it under water. They stop aggro and you can tame as you please. Just make sure you come up for air every once in a while. Also be sure the water is deep enough.
Use the broth of enlightment, since it is their kibble. If you use a broth of enlightment a a balm it I a insta tame, since authors take forever to eat. You can find the recipe on google or something, be warned, it is EXPENSIVE.
Those who say it's very dangerous are crazy. Just bring a long neck rifle, one shot or two and boom. The first time I entered the South Cave, I tamed an scorpion and it significantly helped me to take care of the Arhtros and Boas.
Most of the creatures have arrows in their loots, so if u prefer a ballesta to deal with these bad boys, you are not running out of ammo any soon.
Full Ghillisuit, bug repellent, and balls of steel because these are scary to tame! They have the taming slot right behind their head about where the saddle would normally sit. Must approach from behind and only approach when feeding, stay away otherwise
I find the best way to knock these out and tame them is to simply lead them into the water and grapple to them and they instantly de-aggro and it’s just a matter of feeding it. It has worked many times. Also no ghillie or bug repellent required 👍
If you are going to use these as turrets around the outside of your base, make sure that you have the weight around 500 and over encumber them. When people use these in this manner all we do is pick them up with an argy and fly them away. Sence they are on turret mode they won't move once flown away. Just a helpful tip.
Not exactly the best combat mount, slow, stamina isn't the best, a little squishy. But a few high levels of these on base defence are pretty good. Put a few in the inner parts of your base (along with the spiders to slow them down) and the will have your enemies armour being melted in seconds!
Be extremely cautious when taming these guys can destroy all ur armor with one spit. I also don't suggest attacking them bc that will break ur weapons real fast. If u r in a cave either avoid it or dodge it's spit while shooting it. It is a passive tame that requires spoiled meat or broths of enlightenment. You need to use bug repellent when taming it and I suggest also wearing gillie for extra safeness. Once tamed they are best used as turrets bc they don't have great stats and they have a turret mode after all why not use it?
