You'll laugh but the way I tamed mine was to shoot it and let it grab me. This way it also helped that when he ran due to torpor too high he took me with. No chasing. Armor up and have a buddy in case you get adds. They can help tranq too. Marsh is dangerous. Just a bit easier on scorched earth. Easier to see.
Well, I managed to tame a level 12 with just raw meat, and leveled it up to level 20, now, it was time to test it’s skills. It managed to kill five Sarcos, two Rexes, one Allo, a Brontosaurus, and then died to a Theri.. I was just shocked. For vengeance I went back out and killed the Theri myself, luckily I bred him before that and got a level 15 out of it.
Here’s how I did it.
Step 1. Find low lvl Kapro
Step 2. Run at Kapro
Step 3. Punch Kapro til it faints
Step 4. Shove boa meat down it’s throat
This method worked twice for me, with a lvl 1 and a lvl 3. If you’re going for a high lvl, a crap load a health will see that this method still works
I was out to tame a raptor when suddenly a Kaprosuchus just jumps out of the water!
I forgot to switch my tranq with a normal arrow an accidentally knocked it out then i just tamed it and being attacked by Titanobas! Swamps are scary......
If your on the island go to the east side of the map. Go to the edge of the swamp and make a trap, even a two by two thatch one will work. Put door frames on the edges of the foundations, then finally a ramp for it to walk up on. You can also use this as a safety area to knock it out from.
