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.
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
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!
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.
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?
High level centipedes are very tanky when tamed due to the acidic blood. This means it is a great Dino to protect the base. Also the spit can harvest bodies and cut down trees from far away. Can use as a quetzal defense Dino. Just set to turret mode.
Make sure you don't wear armor around them
Because they will destroy it. Use bug repellent so they don't automatically attack you. If you need spoiled meat make sure you have each raw meat split up individually that way once 5 mins passes by it all spoils at once
Thanks to the Halloween event where these SOBs spawn anywhere they like near my base I've discovered they can slide under gates......you expect to be safe from land creatures, BUT NO. Current death count from unexpected attacks at 2.
These things have a great deal of health and can not be knocked back. Pumping these things in health is probably one of your most viable options, as it takes crazy a lot of points for speed to be of use, which they aren't built for anyhow.
