ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
For a dire bear when I tranq them normally they die so I put down lots of narco traps make it run through them , so it's torpor is high then I start to tranq it
More Direbear Taming & KO Tips
You wont be able to knockout a high level direbear 400+ using tranq arrows in a crossbow instead use longneck rifle with tranq darts but the darts are only craftable in level 62.
BEAR trap does not work on him
If you guys are wanting to have a really strong tank of a Dino, then definitely get a direbear. I have a level 67 bear and she is an absolute unit!!! She has 2,064 hp and she has over 300% melee damage, and she is my beloved baby. I have found a max level male bear in the redwoods and he’s beautiful; black on top and white on bottom. I am really wanting to breed them…but I’m worried about what things it’ll need though. So I gotta hope and pray that it doesn’t want something crazy. Wish me the best of luck everyone!!!
USE DARTS, arrows will usually kill it before it knocks out
Tip- the higher the level the better
I found a level 150 (max level on the server i play on)
I built a small trap so i could knock it out safely.
Used tranq arrows and a snow owl to heal them as i knocked them out
Only took 7 honey to tame them up with 100% effectiveness (the server is 3x so keep that in mind)
Trap i used- 4 stone foundations, 8 stone door frames, 6 stone fences, and two stone stairs
Hope this helped someone :)
These things are absolute beasts, they do insane damage, grind like a boss, and gain momentum while sprinting, to tame these, get a mount which allows rider weaponry and invest decent amount of health in it. Then let it aggro on you and start tranquilizing them ( rifle advised since x-bow may kill it ).
Its torpor run isn't that annoying so just knock it, feed it, then wreck the island's almost every bit( gigas and titans are exceptions ). Up if this helped.
To make honey last practically forever, make a fishing rod and equip honey, that is about to spoil, to the fishing rod, then un-equip it. It should refresh the spoil timer. Does not work with leech blood. Tested on PS4.
Get on a rock or die
Guys you better tame it cuz it will make you become a pro bc it’s good for grinding herbs and meat bc I have one called hany he’s lvl 223 bc the owner of the server helped me to tame him so 1 like=1 love for hany :)
If he is knocked, he is easy to tame because he can also eat berrys. Not as effective as good meet, but its acceptable. He can gather fiber very well.
ps i hope it helped
