ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
i’m a lazy guy, and i don’t usually use traps when i tame things, other than BIG things like a reaper queen or a giga, but THIS IS THE EXCEPTION. unless your dad is apollo, it is impossible to knock one of these guys out without using a trap, for my case anyway. they are ridiculously fast, and they will circle you and attack you. however, the griffin is worth the trouble. it’s one of the fastest fliers, does devastating damage compared to other fliers, other than your typical high-level argy, doesnt need a saddle to ride, can fit two people, and not to mention it looks amazing. however, it can’t pick up many things, it can only pick up smaller creatures. if you carry cryopods around with you though, this shouldn’t be a problem. up this if you found this helpful! -J
More Griffin Taming & KO Tips
U dont need to use tranq darts on griffins just use tranq arrow I just tamed one without any tranq darts
You need to use TRANQ DARTS after the griffin nerf.
Like if they should stop being so stubborn when you try to fly them in a trap
You CAN tame them with a crossbow.
Wait 5-7 seconds between shots and there is no way you will kill it. Torpor raises over time, arrows/darts are not instant.
You do not "have to have" tanq darts.
You do not need a saddle for griffins
The easiest way to tame a griffin 😌.
Requirements: 4 stone Dino gateways - 2 reinforced Dino gates - 1 net gun and some ammo for it - crossbow or rifle - tranq arrows or tranq darts -
First, you must make a stone trap, I recommend getting four stone Dino gateways and two reinforced gates, this way you can reuse the trap to tame other griffins. This will require around 1,200 stone I think 400~ thatch (maybe) and about 650 wood (approx). I recommend getting a large tame with good weight and using a metal axe and pick instead of using a Dino to harvest :)
Now, you must find a griffin, they usually spawn in either the mountain plain areas on most maps (that they are on) or winter biomes.
Once you find a griffin, make sure there aren’t any other creatures around that could kill you or the griffin.
Now, run up to the griffin and use the net gun to trap it. Place the Dino gateways in a line, make sure the gaps aren’t to big. Place the doors at both sides of the trap, make sure they’re closed ofc.
Now, you can use tranq darts or tranq arrows (with crossbow). Wait a few good seconds before shooting again with the crossbow though, or you may kill it.
Shove some meat in its inventory and you have a griffin! I recommend going to the info section for the best food to get!
They can fly through open stone dino gates so build a taming pin with that in mind to make it easier to tame otherwise you will be chasing it down alot.
General Argentavis taming pens will work, it is a knockout game that is not narcotic heavy. Will require quite a lot of tranqs. Have fun taming it everyone!
I tamed one by cageing myself and hitting it with my fist
