Need to know~ If you lure it into a bear trap, (even a small one) it will get stuck. Just spam 7-10 tranq arrows and it’ll be out. Be careful in water, it can stun you and drown you. However the stun ONLY works in water. they ONLY eat fish, they tame fast and don’t need many narcotics, (I used 5). They’re extremely fast on land and (at a high level or in groups) can take down massive carnivores! They’re slower in water and you can’t turn or go up and down on them very well. I have one named Brenda, she’s a beast. If you put multiple of them together, or pair one with a Sarco, you have an unstoppable swamp team! That’s it!
This dinosaur is a very intricate but interesting dinosaur to get. I did find it near the shore line as it had seen me and wanted to eat me. However I had 5 tranq arrows which you can get at lvl 21. I shot all 5 and he fell to the ground. Very good dinosaur to tame especially in the water. It beats anything in the water even with its stun strike. I recommend using this dino to fight. I have one named Juju. One like equals One love for Juju
I was taming a lvl 130.i was lvl 50 with 300 health.i tried bringing it into pen but failed twice.so I risked it .just stood there shooting it in the face and it barely reduced my health.pachyrhino kibble gave 12% taming without soothing balm.with minor (3x) balm prime fish 6%, fish meat 2%.
⚠️This is what I do and this method may not work for everyone. ⚠️
I take a high-health take (think a turtle or something) that allows weapon use on the mount. Let the Baryonyx attack your tame while you shoot it with tranq arrows/darts. MAKE SURE THIS IS ON LAND! If you are in the water, the Bary WILL knock you off your mount and stun you. They will flee after enough hits but they'll be knocked out after fleeing for a little. Good luck survivors! (I used this method on a lvl. 100 female, I named her Lilypad).
