If you are a starter and you don’t want to die of dangerous dinos get full clothes cloth or hide so you don’t freeze to death and bola the megalosaurus then you nock it out with a club or a bow of tranq arrows or your fists once it is unconscious feed it berry’s or kibble I hope my tip helps.
You will need: Argy with saddle, a bola, berries and a base fairly close to the redwoods. (maybe in southern islets?) Step 1: Hop on your argy and fly to the redwoods. Step 2: Find a female megaloceros with no creatures charging at it or attacking it. Step 3: Pick up the female megaloceros. Step 4: Land at your usual stamina regain spots. Note that whenever you land, you will drop the megaloceros. Make sure to pick it up again. Step 5: Once you're at your base, if you have spike walls surronding it, put the megaloceros in the middle so it won't die. Step 6: Bola it, knock it unconsious with your fists, and give it berries (50 is good, but if you have a berry plant, take all the berries from that plant and put it in the megaloceros' inventory.) Step 7: Wait until it's tamed. At your base, it's safe. Step 8: Name it, and i reccomend to breed females to get strong males, and fight with males. Don't get your males killed! Also keep females to keep the cooldown at bay. Please ^ if this was helpful!
Now I am on a mobile device, and this maybe was my imagination, but while taking one of these fellas, I fed it a rare flower, it tamed a bit faster until the taming went up, so I fed it another, it helped!
Also, if you can’t find rare flowers anywhere, go to your local beaver dam and open it, beware though, the beaver will attack you for stealing stuff from their precious babies… anywho, they give you rare flowers.
Also, if you have an argintavis and a tree platform, pick it up with your argie, place it on the platform, bola it, and use TRANQ ARROWS! Tranq darts to more melee than the arrows, also the bolas only last for 30 seconds! So be quick!
Easy tame, just use bolas, trap/protect it with spike walls, feed berries, and use narcotics/narco berries to keep torpor up. I play on a small tribes server and tamed a max level in less than an hour with 3x.
Here is a great tip for taming these. When you fly to the redwoods, MAKE YOUR FLYER AN ARGY! When you knock it out and the area seems safe, note that other creatures (purlovias, terror birbs, carnos etc) can spawn and kill your megaloceros! With an argy you can protecc your megaloceros, by killin' dem carnz, Killin' dem Terror birbz and killin' all dem tingz who come near ya moose! I was taming one while flying on my argy, and i had to kill: like a million terror birb packs, one carno and one purlovia, all to protect my moose. Her name is Sprinkle, and she is pregnant now, and safe thanks to my argy. Argy's also have great stamina, so you can hover over your megaloceros and protect it. Pteranodons can't protect very well, don't have great starting stamina etc. USE AN ARGY TO PROTECT YOUR FUTURE TAMED MOOSE! P.S One like=one hope sprinkle's future baby is female!
Megalooceros are easy tame because they are passive but once hit they run away which is bad for itself and you because it will run into other creatures. Such Rexes, raptors, sarbertooths, scorpions, Argys, allosaurus, thylas, yutys, daedons, and Carnos. Also other dangerous creatures. All you need are bolas to trap it, tranq arrows or a club to knock it out, and berries or crops to feed it. And done have a good day with your deer.
My favorite cave mount. I have been breeding them for months, my 776 melee outputs as much damage as a wyvern bite at 500 melee, plus bleed. Put an MC or better saddle on one and it will wreck any cave. They absorb otherwise rider inflicted damage, they can jump to clear gaps, they're fast, they output massive damage, and can hit more than one target at once with their attack. What's not to love? (Low health and weight which also makes them painstaking in baby stage)
To tame a Megaloceros, I would try to tame an Argentavis and carry it to somewhere warm. Assuming you have plenty of Mejoberries from any berry collector, or even by hand, or you could have Dimorphodon kibble you can begin taming. I would suggest using a bola, because these guys like to run. With a few tranquil arrows to their head they would be out quick. These guys don't usually need much narcotics. The megaloceros is amazing at collecting thatch, and they have a bleed effect, which is great for pvp and killing dinos.
