The most sincerely safe and foolproof tactic is to get a spino. To tame, find a kapro and unmount the spino. U will be standing on it's neck. Shoot the kapro while standing here. U might need to reposition a few times but becareful dun fall off. Spinos are great as u dun risk urself being snatched off and slowly be drained of life.
This was funny story and I lived to tell it I flyer low with pteranodon because I use my argy a lot and got jumped by one because I flew low kapros do have candy but it’s hard candy if your flying low to swamp your gonna get kidnapped like when Godzilla murdered 3 of his friends by throwing em
Super easy first tame for scorched earth, just find some lakes (at maps low point) where they usually are, wait for them to attack some creatures and hop onto a rock with a side that’s steep enough the Karoo can’t hop onto the rock itself, then just beat the heck out of it with a boomerang, I found two, one got killed in the process and had a metal pick! First day already got metal tools, a good base area and a level EIGHTY kapro, I’d say that’s a pretty good start
