The mammoth already has a platform saddle in ark mobile but you have to buy the engram with real money. Click the up arrow if you want to help convince wildcard to add it into all versions of ark fully including ark mobile for free!!! Help start the petition revolution!!!!
If you look left while using the primary attack the animation will be shorter.
Secondary attack is better for wood in my experience, it also deals more dmg but has a longer animation.
Overall very good mount for wood and berries.
They aren't extremely fast and are easily outrun, so just shoot it with a crossbow using tranq arrows and turn around and runa. Few steps when it gets too close. ( may be best to take out any other mammoths before attempting to tame )
If you see one near a body of water get a aquatic animal and start shooting it with tranq arrows/darts while your in the water stay away from the land or the mammoth will try to attack you if your not on land then it won’t noticeonce it’s knocked feed it
On the raft build a 3x3 foundation with 3 walls high and a ramp going up into the raft. Go to the winter area youll find Mammoths there. Get it into the raft. Once in the raft shoot it with tranq arrows. Starve it and then feed. Kibble is 80times its food.
