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
it doest acctually eat raw meat, plus it took me a little long cuz my raptor went crazy and killed the unconcious dimoprhon, plus its hard for me to bola it cuz.... lets say it just (-hard to tame-) (fly so high)
They can deal surprising large amount of damage to your character so I find getting a shot in with Trang’s and then running in a straight line for a few meters so you can get a straight shot while they directly at you. For me, trying to shoot these things whilst they fly around me in circles has always ended in tears
Good tame. Make sure to have tranqs and bolas on you as you don’t need one flying around you, biting chunks off of you as you try to hit it. Which won’t work. Make sure to separate them if their in a flock. These suckers do real major damage in a group. Good for killing low big carnivores.
I find it easier to kite Dimorph to control my Taming area. In the past, a well placed bola would easily drop them to be tranq'd. Lately my bola is bugged and doesn't work, so I had to improvise. When you hop off your mount with a Dimorph aggro'd, it will circle your mount almost too quickly to land a tranq arrow. My solution? Have your Argy/Ptera on 'Follow' and run in a straight line for a moment, turn 180* and line up your shot, the Dimorph will chase your tame, and place itself perfectly for headshots.
