ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
Diplo's are super tanky. Everyone doesnt realize this is now the BEST bullet tank in the game. When heath is low, sprint out with no problem. Unlike the bronto, the Diplo is very fast. While passive taming, realize that first feeding you have about 15 minutes until next feeding. Then all quick after that.

How to get a diplo:
Know that it is easiest to passive tame them, which means walking up to them and feeding them
Get a TON of berries, everytime you feed it, it will go up like 3-5%
Have a high speed, high attack flying dino, (high attack in case you "miss click")
HAVE PATIENCE, diplo's are a stubborn tame, they will push you playfully (hence the flying dino)
MAKE SURE there are no carnivores around, if there are carnies around it will attack it there is a chance of it dying, it will get rid of all your hard work, and most importantly, IT MAY DIE (R.I.P. attempted tame #1 + 2 😢)
Plz note I am not an "high level player" that has a giga, I am lvl 50, (51 at the time I wrote this, almost 52) so I am not that experienced, tho I am sorta, I don't know that much about the game
UP IF HELPFUL
When passively taking, keep in mind that there is a large gap of time between their first food item and second. Afterwards the food drain proceeds normally
Passive tamed a level 12 (+5 levels) with 15 mejoberries. If you can situate yourself under it’s legs, specifically between the two front ones, the diplo will continue to try and bump you back but will be unsuccessful. It will do this move over and over again, and drain its stamina and hunger faster, which leads to a faster tame.
I was exploring the forest when I saw a razor tail whip though the sky. I carefully approached and it did not care for me. If you jump of run or make any sudden movements near it it will start knocking you back with it’s head. Now being nicked back is kind of fun but it will remember you and follow you. You will not take damage from it, to tame you hide under it’s belly and start feeding it any type of berry you can, make sure your other games are not near it when you are taming it!
When there wild there pretty slow
But when there tamed....
I recommend getting a soothing balm when taming it on berries it only goes up like three % even on mejoberrys so I got a soothing balm and fed it to him and now it goes up like 35% each time I feed him my dippy name is mango I almost tame a therizinosaurus with him but I ran out of biotoxin and it killed me
When taming or fighting, you can stand under their belly and not be knocked back. It may take a few trys but they do no damage to you anyway.
The first time you feed it it goes really slow but after that it’s like every 15 seconds(berries)
When trying to tame they are a passive tame meaning you don’t knock it out.Also keep in mind when trying to tame they are extremely playful and will try to push you back.
Name it taxi or uber and charge people to ride on it
