I tamed a low level one only level 4. Seems that evwrthing hates tamed Megaladons. It got swarmed by 3 other megs and 2 Mantas. Lost it within a few minutes of taming. Your better off with a Sarco if you intend to stay near the surface
I also saw another person say this just get a itchysouriour and I know I spelt that wrong who cares they look like a dolphin anyway put a saddle on it and kite the megaladon I thought of this while I was taming one
If your looking for a quick way to get across the sea. This is not it, their slow and stamina runs out fast. Believe it or not their very vunerable and other megs will still attack. Their turning radius isn't great either. Your better off with a Sarco.
When your taking the megalodon once you have knocked it out don’t shoot it again to make it sleep longer use narcotics because then the taming effectiveness will go down and you will get a lower level megalodon
1. You get a tanky bait like carbonemys
2. Make Your Bait Follow You Near The Mega
3. Wait A Bit Until Mega Gets Attracted To Carb
4.When Mega Is Attracted To Carb. Rain Tranq Arrows On It With A CrossBow
