A seriously useless tame. I'm not joking, don't bother with this one. If you want to fish, use sap or leech blood. If you want to get rid of a Dino, use aggro darts. Don't bother with this garbage Dino that can't even level up and produces an item that spoils before it can even be put to use.
If you want to tame one, the easiest way is to get a dire bear and break the nest, because they are immune to bees. Use it to break the nest, then when the nest beaks, make sure you have full ghille armor and bug repellent, and tame it with simple kibble. You can then go to the bee and press the 'aquire nest' button, and it will give you a bees nest. You can place this on any natural ground, but no human made floors. Put rare flowers into it, and it will produce giant bee honey over time. Rare flowers can be harvested from plants in the swamps across the island, but beware of the creatures that dwell there. When you go into your bees nest to gather honey, you will get the bee effect and start taking damadge, even though it is your own bees nest.
2021- tried several times with past tips/videos to tame the queen bee. Such a nightmare lol. Only thing that worked was breaking the hive with my dire bear, eating a bug repellent, then crouching below the queen bee with regular kibble in my 0 slot. Finally worked!!
ALWAYS break the hive with ranged attacks. If you choose to melee it,drones will continuously spawn from it infinitely, and they will repair the hive, so best to shoot it down and kill all the drones before attempting a tame. Oh, and the queen will spawn more drones periodically, so bee careful.
If you're pkaying mobile version,on the island map(I'm still at it so idk abt other maps),u can the engram "Giant Bee Hive",made with Chitin,Tatch and Sap.U can't place it on the natural ground or atificial ground though.So make a giant tree platform,go to Redwoods,place ur platform and then place ur hive on it and give it rare flowers to get honey.
Upsides are that there are no thylas in mobile that could harm it(or not since some dinos won't give a sh!t abt ur structures)and u don't get attacked by bees on collecting ur honey
Downside(or no) is that it's a midgame engram and could be a pain in the @ss at times u need it in the early game
Used 13 dimorph, an Argy, ghillie armoor, bug repellant snd some simple kibble. Cake walk. The dimorphs destroyed the hive in secondsand took care of all the drones with minimal damage. Thinking of getting a second hive.
