So much misinformation here. Where to begin lol ok so as of Aug 2023, you can knock out w tranq arrows no problem, just go for level 80+ shoot in the head not the shell, wait 5 seconds between shots. You can’t bola them so ignore that comment. Creatures do not take torpor damage when they are caught by bear traps so ignore that comment too. Someone said to use biotoxin to keep them unconscious that’s a terrible plan because these guys wake up pretty fast, and they take quite awhile to tame high levels. You want to use narcoberries because they take the longest to take effect, the time it takes to fill up all the way is invaluable compared to filling it up fast.
I see tons of these walking bowling balls all over aberration, and a lot of them are in the fertile lake area. If you see one, start shooting it in the head with tranq darts. Arrows do more damage but if you don’t have access to darts yet, you can use them. If you do end up using the arrows, wait 5 seconds before every shot to do max torpor with minimum damage. Once tamed these things can roll like a ball, gather stone like BONKERS, and have decent defense. Although, I still wouldn’t recommend attacking a rex with it. Overall, it is a good tame for early game stone gathering.
I play on mobile and when I was taming mine I had to run back to go get some food for him and a soothing balm when I had gotten back the topor was still to the right of the s, my base is at lat: 78.31 lon: 77.52 and i tamed my at lat: 69.67 lon: 82. 70 and the topor had dropped in front of the s
it was like this when I had botten back
also I ran all the way on foot and my movement speed is 109
also be careful getting off of them when on a raft with no roof, they will start to levitate, I wish I was joking. the only way to fix this if they do start to levitate is to move while riding them I'm not sure abt have them follow you because I have not tried it and I don't want to risk it testing that theory. I don't recommend you try that theory but if you do be careful.
