I usually knock it out during the day or make a trap for it, lure it in and wait till night time at 20:30. Then I safely knock it out and put the kibble or mutton on it while it's still nighttime. If you do knock it out during the day you will lose the food in its inventory when it wakes up at 20:30, have to knock it out again, and put more food on it after it's out again. Bring plenty of tranq arrows and maybe another crossbow xD good luck! Once tamed they are funny with the sleep debt making them super duper slow, gain torpor during the day, and curl up into a cute ball. At night the eyes glow yellow and it is fast and powerful.
People say that is easy taming on day rather than night, but thats not truth because they always wake up, no matter how much torpor they have at 20:30 in game, that will cause you to lose all your taming process, I always tame these guys by starving them 2 times and then the 3rd knockout I put the food on its inventory, thanks for reading
1. Yes it will wake up every single night instantly at 20:30 server time
2.. It can be re-knocked out each time to continue taming, the progress WILL stay. This is what the devs made happen with their "fix", making it look like the waking up is a intentional part of the tame and a wanted feature for it by them.
3. When it wakes up everything in inventory gets deleted, you need to take food out before this happens.
4. 3 hour starve tame is the way to go pretty much, no narcotics needed as torpidity goes really slow, just keep knocking out.
Tame the mega during the day! It is extremly slower during the day due to wanting a rest. It is a very strong dino, it has been tested to be even stronger than the allo! Be careful if you tame it at night ;) caw
