This isn’t really a tip but I had this dimorphodon named Eagle who was super quirky and occasionally killed things that tried to kill me from compys to allos. On day a theri wandered onto my wooden base and guess what happened. 20 of my BEST tames were slaughtered along with my best Iguanodon for travel. Eagle tried to put a stop to it but was killed in the process. All my other creatures were passive. There wasn’t even an implant to revive her with. D: I was so filled with rage, I trapped it and killed it slowly and painfully with my lvl 131 dodo. Rule? Kill and aggressive creatures before they kill ur pets. Press the up arrows if you agree.
- You can grappling hook them in the face and pull them to an easier spot to tame without pulling aggro. Touching structures and lag will break the grappling hook.
- Bolas work and are recommended, as their hitboxes are tiny and their wings block shots. Bolas aggro so make sure you're away from other Dimos
- For more bonus levels, don't feed the Dimo and let it's good drop a lot (starve taming). Then, rush all the Prime Meat you can into it at once.
This allows it to eat more prime meat without it expiring, which allows for MUCH more bonus levels and a faster tame.
As they don’t land often I find it easiest to eat rare flowers which agros them. Then all you have to do is walk backwards and either bola them as they fly straight at you or just tranq them straight out of the air
To Tame find one that is alone and bola it then tranq the thing with arrows or club and just give it raw meat and go and repeat it to others and on your way back to base make the ones still alive follow you.
Just Bola then KO with fists or arrows. They eat meat and they also tame very quickly but their torpor drain is quick too, so have a few narcotics or narcoberries at hand to force feed it! Also make sure there are no other dimorphs nearby because they will kill you. These fellas are good for attacking all sorts of Dino's since they are small, fast, have good attack and are hard to hit.
Even with a longneck rifle, remember to lead by a LOT when it's flying horizontally past you. Small hitbox + lag = some arrows and darts registering hits on your screen, but not on the server. At 30ms lag it's about a body length inc. tail.
Bolas really are the best plan, to get them to SIT. THE HECK. DOWN. You need to lead more because of the slow travel time for bolas, but getting the dimo down is such a relief.
Aggroing headshots also works, but can do more damage than you intend. Make sure to bring a lot of bolas, and maybe clear the dimo's flight path of other dangers first so you don't, y'know, run directly into an alpha raptor while staring at the sky...
Ghillie suits are great if you're trying to snag one in a dangerous area! Good luck building your death swarm.
I like to keep one on my shoulder while exploring. If set to neutral, they will help you fight anything that attacks you, and is especially nice to take down those annoying meganeura and titanomyras. Exclusively pump meter damage
