Crack crack crack… what was that? Well if looks could kill you would have died right there and then, This is the Carcharodontasaurus! Wanna tame one yourself? Where to find some? Or maybe how to defend yourself? All of those will be answered in one massive tip! So let’s jump in!
So where would you find one? They have the same spawn points as gigas, so if you want to find eithor of these apex predators that’s where you have the best chance of finding them. (Do note that they are a rare spawn)
How would you defend yourself? If you don’t have a flying tame next to you, then you can consider yourself very very dead. Other than that Carcharodontasaurus have a gnash defect they can inflict, very similar to that of a Giga.
Alright and that leaves us with how tame one, starting with all the supplies you will need: a tribe mate, a wyvern, 5-9 metal gateways, a simple bed and foundation, some large beartraps, and loads of patience. Start by finding one, fly a decent 150 meters away from it, (to avoid grabbing its attention while making the trap) and place the metal gateways in a circle, while leaving a opening. (Try not to make the circle to small because the Carcharodontasaurus HAS to move or the taming process will break) now that the cage is set, place the beartraps in the middle of the trap. The hard part is getting the Carcharodontasaurus into the trap. Use the wyvern to grab the Dino’s attention and lure it to the trap, and right when it enters and hits a trap, you run behind it and place the final gateways insuring the Dino stays in. Have your tribe mate watch the Carcharodontasaurus, while you grab the wyvern and grab large dinos, or vise versa, and bring them back to the enclosure, have your tribe mate kill it, while you grab more (keep doing this until you have a pile of dead things). So now your ready for the grueling taming process: have your tribemate drag dead animals to you, while you (hopefully having armor on) drag it and hold it near the Carcharodontasaurus, (the Carcharodontasaurus should sniff the air, and walk towards you, reach down and eat the corpse) after eating the corpse you gain a friendship meter, (this is a good thing) however you have to be quick, with haste continue dragging Dead Dino’s to the Carcharodontasaurus, and when the friendship meter is completely full, break down the side of the trap, and ride the Carcharodontasaurus. It is not tamed yet, but this is the last step and it’s the easiest: Go on the worlds bloodiest merciless dino massecre you possibly can. Eventually after eating and killing enough Dino’s the Carcharodontasaurus will have full taming effectiveness and then you have your very own Carcharodontasaurus! :D
The person who said it’s only tamed for ten minutes is wrong they just didn’t understand the taming process you feed it creature bodies (gallimimus is favorite) then you can ride it but it’s not “your friend” you have to kill things with it wile you ride it then it’s tamed forever this person just didn’t do the last part of taming
After taming 3 carchars, this is what I have learned:
-the best way to trap these fellas is a 1x1 of metal dino gateways. You must have a bear trap in the middle of 3 gates to trap the carchar and then put up the 4th gate
-when trapped, the bastards will often refuse to eat, in order to fix this you can leave the corpse by it and simply go out of render from it. All tames must be out of render for this to work. If you left the corpse by it’s feet like I earlier said then by the time you come back the corpse will be eaten and the carchars progress will rise
-In the process of leaving and entering render to reset them, it a a must that you do this in a swiftly manner, as if you load in the carchar before you load the trap in the charcar has a large chance of meshing through your trap. I like to use a dino which can quickly elevate and dive for this
-when you have fed them enough corpses their progress bar will turn green and you can ride them, leave up the trap except for one gateway and start killing anything you see
-it is a good idea to head for highly populated areas instead of going for big kills
-elixirs do work on them so make sure you pop one when the car gets to 70% taming
-I’m not sure if this is possible with our rates yet, but if the car gets to a 99 kill streak it is very important that you roar. If you don’t and you hit a streak of 100 you will be kicked off of the car. Some dinos give a higher boost than just one, so if you feel as though you are getting to close to 100 you should roar sooner
-If you don’t get to 100% before the ten minutes is up it is much easier if you walk the car back into the old trap while you still have control of it. If you would like, you can also put up a new trap around the car while you still have control
-each time you have to feed and mount the car it’s timing effectiveness will tank. It will also fall if you take damage so make sure you don’t hit creatures with a thorn aspect like arthlos or kentros. It is also important that you negate all fall damage by jumping off of them because this drops their effectiveness as well
Has a bloodrage buff that counts kills up to 100 and slowly decays when you don't make kills. At full rage, does x2.75 damage. Gets a 10 sec buff after every kill that greatly increases movement speed and gives stun immunity. Much tighter turn radius than a giga, runs faster, a little better stamina scaling. Seems like either bloodrage or the speed buff heals it a bit as well. Has a roar that zeros out the bloodrage counter. I'm told the roar gives a speed buff to allies. Tail spin attack a similar to a Reaper. Overall, it is comparable to or better than a giga in most respects.
The person who said they don’t just hasn’t encountered it yet, but many times I’ve had to lure wild Gigas away from a Carcharo to tame it. The spawn areas for these roll for a Giga or Carcharo separately, making it completely possible for both to spawn at once.
During the process you have to ride and kill stuff after giving it dead body's but to do the ride process try to make the carca be near the red woods because it gets tryst points for killing bugs and other stuff in the red woods
