To safely and quickly kill an enforcer for the blueprint, use bolas, if you're just starting, instead of going melee when it's stuck, shoot arrows at it's face... If it works for me, it can work for you
I found a 175 blueprint (acsendant) that was wicked awesome, but it cost 4000 metal ingots, 10000 element dust, 500 oil, 2500 crystal, and 3000 polymer. Am currently farming resources for it, afraid I may never make it.
For a basic enforcer, go around the city and gather at least 500 element dust from lampposts(preferably more), kill a few isolated enforcers until you get 20 oil, go to the wasteland killing the weaker corrupted creatures for corrupted nodules (they can be used as polymer)
When you collect all the resources, go to a city terminal and craft your own enforcer.
The Enforcer drops a blueprint upon being killed and the blueprint dropped will give you that exact enforcer you just deafeated. It will have the same color(s) and stats as the one you killed and can be crafted at any city terminal. The higher the stats the more ingredients you will need.
Trust me when i say this, its easier to make a level one at a terminal than ti make the 180's and crap. Best way to level up is to mount next to a explorer note and get next to it, since it'll get the xp boost too. Then fight corrupted dinos, because enforcers and defense units do 2× to 4× damage on corrupted dinos.
