I ended up taming a level 100 Kapro on Crystal Isles. I was scouting with my level 230 (approximate) pteranodon — oddly enough, I found a lone one just off of the shore in the shoals biome (this area was a bit close to a swamp, so). They are very scary in the water, as they will leap right out of it in an attempt to attack you and your tame granted that you are close enough to the ocean’s surface. I led one onto the beach and was lucky enough to find a tall enough rock to land upon so that the aggravated creature couldn’t reach me. It took several tranq arrows to knock it out using a crossbow. After assuring that the area around me was clear and there weren’t any more threats, I had easily tamed it with a stack of raw meat and carefully led it back to my base. It was easier than I had expected to tame one, even as it was a high level. The advice I would give other players is that if you are going to lead one to a tall rock so you can tranquilize one without getting attacked, I’d still be careful to make the best judgement call with the rock and be 100% positive that it has no parts of it that the creature can pounce onto and find its way to you. By the way, I’m pretty new to Ark still, so my strategy may not be that professional — but I hope it helps other new players!
If you ride a stego in the swamp, you won’t get caught by the kapro(they just sorta slam and bite the stego instead), so long as you bring some tranq arrows in a crossbow, you can tame one easily(many swamp creatures drop prime meat). Just make sure you use a combo of passive, neutral, and knock back to escort back(I play mobile, but picking one up can also work).
Tame a large dinosaur (I used a yuty, I'm not sure if kapros can knock you off a large mount so be weary of this, but a kapro has yet to knock me off of my yuty and I've tamed 3 of them so far) and tame a dilophosaur to use as bait. Make sure both are set to passive. Once you see a kapro and you're in aggro range, hop off your yuty for a sec then hop back on. The kapro should be aggroed onto you but will attack your mount trying to get to you. Move around a bit and the kapro will eventually change targets to the dilo. Once it's got the dilo in it's jaws, you can get off your yuty and shoot it with tranq darts and bam, you got yourself a new dino
So I kinda wanted to tame one so I went to grab one with my argy…
He grabbed me off the argys back fell into the water with him I pulled out my sword and killed him then all the STUIPED TORPOR DEALING SNAKES CAME AT ME I made it out alive but I almost drowned while I was knocked out I made it to my nearest outpost from there I grabbed my pteranodon and flew to whistle my argy and flew home
PS: it is useful to have outposts where you can retreat also the outposts should have a flyer and supplies. I have 1 in redwoods 2 next to diff parts of swamp and some others through the map
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.
So finding these guys in a swamp is pretty easy as they will pounce at you and drag you around like a rag doll. They have a venomous bite but when you get at least 4 levels of fortitude the bite should have no effect on you. If your playing in console or pc DO NOT use a bola because they will not work on the other hand, for mobile players, the bola will work on these guys. So for console and pc, taming these guys will need a club or you can punch it (tranq arrows are optional), at least some type of armor if you don’t have health leveled up high enough, and some servings of raw meat or kibble (40 or more raw meat is recommended).
The steps for console and pc are:
1. Go to a swamp (on the island)
2. Run or walk up to it
3. Let it kidnap you
4. Either punch it or hit it with your club, you may even be able to get some shots in with the bow
5. Once you knockout put the taming food in it’s inventory
6. Protect it from other, aggressive animals
7. When it’s finished taming, enjoy your very own Kaprosuchus
For mobile you will need a club or fists to knockout the dang thing (tranq arrows are also optional), one or two bolas to keep the thing in place so it can’t attack you, some type of armor (yes, again) if health is not leveled up, and kibble or raw meat to tame it.
The steps for mobile are:
1. Find a Kaprosuchus (I don’t know where the spawn on mobile)
2. Throw the bola at it and if it breaks out of the bola while knocking it out throw the other bola if you have one (The kidnapping method above will work too)
3. To knock it out either hit it with your fists or club, even better using the bow and tranq arrows
4. Once knocked out, feed it the the taming food
5. Protect it from other aggressive animals
6. Once tamed, enjoy your very own Kaprosuchus
Hoped this helped someone tame a Kaprosuchus and if it did please up this so other players can tame one too.
