ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
How do I tame a baryonyx? Tips and strategies on taming and knocking out a baryonyx.
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
They are pescatarians so they only eat fish
Spino + Raptor = Baryonyx. faster than the raptor on land and faster than the spino in water... cool dinosaur
Trying to tame one of the most versatile cave dinos in the game? Continue reading! Before we use yet another tame slot, let's prepare for some taming! Here's what you'll want to pack:
DIFFICULTY: 4.5/10 (Fairly Easy)
WHAT YOU NEED:
-Taming Weapon + Ammo: (Bow (Tranq Arrow) Crossbow, (Tranq Arrow), Longneck (Tranq/ Shocking Tranq Darts) )
-Fish Meat or Raw Prime Fish Meat
Alright, now that you're up and ready, let's go!
Now, for taming a Baryonyx, there are a few methods (ok only 2 ik):
METHOD 1: THE TRAP
The usual. However, there are a few modifications to this new trap. Here's what you'll need:
-1x Stone Foundation
-8x Stone Doorways
-2-3x Wooden Ramps
NOTE: I will include an extra option for this method, where wooden ramps are not needed.
Now that you have your trap built, lure the Baryonyx into the trap. Start shooting it through the gaps in the doorways until its knocked out. Put raw FISH meat (They do not eat Raw Meat or Prime Meat) in its inventory and wait for it to tame. Make sure to keep an eye on its torpor and feed it biotoxins/ narcotics if needed. However, you can also go and hunt for raw prime fish meat (No megalodon needed) if you have a sickle, where you can harvest prime fish meat from Sabertooth Salmon corpses. Wait a little while and boom! A new Baryonyx!
Now, with the second option:
You can use an Argentavis to pick up the Baryonyx and drop it into the trap, saving you some resources in that you do not need the wooden ramps. Repeat the taming process and boom! Your Baryonyx is ready!
METHOD 2: The Easy Method
The only thing you need for this method is the Bola. Find a Baryonyx (Usually found in swamps which are dangerous, but can spawn along rivers.), get it to aggro on you, and bola it while its running to you. You can try to club him but I would definitely tranq it down. Once its down, repeat the taming process mentioned above and name your new Baryonyx!
Now, onto the utilities of this creature:
Baryonyxes are great cave dinos, with decent health, melee, speed and stamina. Although there are better options for different caves, the Baryonyx is the most versatile and is great for most, if not all caves, this is due to their stats and also slender body, allowing it to fit through most slim cracks in caves. Do note that when force fed Raw Meat, the Baryonyx will not heal, but force feeding fish meat will. They also have a AoE ability that only works in water which does a tail spin attack, stunning nearby creatures (Not all of them) and doing damage (It works up to the Megalodon I believe.).
That's all I have to say about the Baryonyx. Thank you for sticking around and happy taming!

YOU CAN NO LONGER BOLA THESE!!!!! REMEMBER THAT!!!
Really good for exploring caves. Just NOT lava cave!! RIP Leafclaw😔😢
Cannot use a bola anymore so either use a stone trap or a bear trap and put ~10 tranq arrows into their skull
Why do they attack me and other herbivores if they only eat fish meat?
Tip for noobs (Mobile) Get a few bolas A Bat And if u have a pachy use that! Helps with torpor And be careful! They are fast! (Do not Try to take it there is more then 1 near Just in case)
Do you want to know how to tame baryons well it’s like to tame a raptor so you have to get 9 bolas just in case and get the bat and he it.
BOLAS WORK ON MOBILE! Hope others see this
1: Do not fight them in water under any circumstances
2: Lure them on to land
3: Use a bola
4: Attempt to Tranquilse with bow and arrow or better
Remember: They can only be tamed with fish meat and they usually kill all the fish in the area so you should probably have some prepared beforehand.
Extremely useful, find them near almost any river bank. Lure them out of the water (do NOT try to fight them in the water, you will 100% die) and bola them. Then either knock them out with a few hits or hit it with a tranq arrow. We use them as protection when traveling, and they have takes out everything from a pack of raptors to a therinosaurus to carnos.
1. Find a Baryonyx
2. Climb on a rock
3. Shoot it with tranq arrows
4. Feed it fish me
5. You have a Baryonyx
Bola it this drill on the head with tranq arrows doest matter if it's with a bow or a crossbow but if it's over lever 50 then I recommend using a crossbow and I recommend using fish meat to tame.
Bola's work on these, can tame anywhere even in water, prime fish meat is best so take a fishing rod and all the necessary equipment needed, easy tame
How to tame a baryonyx!
1. Find a baryonyx (they’re found near and in swaps)
2. Make a trap/make bolas (you could also use an argy to take the bary to a trap or somewhere else more safer)
3. Trap or bola the baryonyx
4. Knock it out! (I used my bow with 353 damage and I used about 20 tranq arrows on a 270 baryonyx)
5. Use a smoothing balm if you want I’ll make the process faster! ( you can get smoothing balms by running caves and turning in the artifact!)
6. Feed the bary prime fish meat! ( get a sickle and kill a lot of sabertooth salmons and harvest them with the sickle!)
7. Wait for your new baryonyx to tame!
FYI I play on mobile!! Hope this helped!
For beginners you cN just bola them and whack em with a bat until their knocked out, I don't think it works on higher levels tho but it worked for me so it probably will work for you
You can bola these on mobile. I'm not sure with PC/Controller. Up so mobile player knows. Thanks 😊
Hang on, it’s says that a argy can’t pick it up, when on mobile I use my argy Flicker to farm tame these things!
Hope this is helpful!
