ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
How do I tame a coelacanth? Tips and strategies on taming and knocking out a coelacanth.
Don't tame near water or it will drown
These are the most violent creature in game. You need at least 3 people, 10 Gigas max level, a platform quetzal, with cannon balls about 250 minimum. A couple rex's hopefully max level health. Now build a simple trap out of metal spikes. Now find one of these beasts, very carefully line up your Gigas, and rex's. These are sacrifices for the Coelacanth to eat while you shoot carefully from your queztal, have the other people shoot as well. Finally feed the beast kibble.
Unfortunately, you cannot craft fish baskets on mobile. I am sorry fellow mobile players. I reached level 100 and its is still not there.
It’s a harmless fish and if you die to it then ark is not the game for you
Found a 90.9x using mods. Got it into my pond and now it just is a beast.
Why do people lie about this? you only need a fish basket and bee honey
These people are ultra-wrong. It's Tsunami Attack barely hurts. Plus, it almost never uses it.
So how to really tame it get a fish basket then find one you like then put the fishing basket in front of it then when it gets close press capture fish don't know why people keep lieing about how to tame it.
Run if you see the fish it can kill a giganotosaurus
Find it in the river, kill it and there you go, drag its dead corps around and enjoy :) ( until it decomposes )
Tamable using fish baskets from aberration.
Trap coels in a fish basket, then cryo the fish. Keep them cryoed until you want to tame a shadow, then make another fish basket, release them from the cryo and trap them again. Put the fish basket in your hot bar and submerge yourself to reset their timer. No wasting fish baskets. Get lots of fungal wood to make more baskets as they will destroy after you "tame".
This monster one shot my lvl 600 tuso, don’t recommend taming alone.
They are literally harmless and do no damage. The only way you can die from it is drowning. But if you do want to tame it use a fishing basket.
You can only get the baskets if you have abbarant (sorry I can’t remember the name my bad).
Just use a fish basket. I’m unsure if it’s on mobile, apologies.
These are insane! Really wild card this is more of a boss don’t you think? I mean these things are killing machines!! Here’s how to kill one, first get a few titantosaurs, gigas, wyverns, and a 300-400 quetzal. Build a tek base on the quetzal and whistle follow for wyverns and Titans. Make them face one side of the beast and gigas on the other, then whistle attack, all pets must be 300 level or more, you may lose a few in the process though. Get out your strongest weapons, only ranged, far ranged because they can send tsunami waves at you and your tames. Attack with your pets and hope for the best. Do the same for taming but bring MANY MANY more large animals, make sure they don’t attack, they are for the taming sacrifices. Knock out with turrets and cannons on a quetzal. Their unconscious is 25 times as fast as a gigas so bring bio toxin in the millions. You will have to kill your tames for the coelacanth to eat, they will only eat the following animals, Gigas, wyverns, griffins, titantosaurs, phoenix’s, unicorns, and quetzals over he level of 200. This taming will take around 14-15 hours. Good luck players! Or you can tame it passively which is around 10 times as hard as knocking it out!
These need to be breedable! Would make it much easier to get food for shadowmane taming.
Once in the fish basket, put them in some shallow, safe water and then re-trap it when ready.
This thing is deadly, was moving my Rex's across the river then found 3 feeds "Your t-rex has been killed by a coelacanth"... F for Johnny, ham, wom.
Put down fishing basket in aderation to tame with triangle
If you actually wanna tame one of these, I believe you need a fish basket
