If you knock it out just before it turns to morning then it will stay asleep for the entire day don’t wait until the afternoon or later because it will wake up. Also bring prime meat it will tame loads quicker. DO NOT knock out on the same level as it make sure you are higher than it as it will pick you up in its mouth and the only way to get out is to either kill or tranq out. I now have a lvl 50 megalosaurus from this
Useful tip for everyone: Ark’s day and night cycle is 1 hour in real life (on normal settings).
That means if you shoot the dinosaur right out at 8:30 p.m., it will wake up in real time in one hour at 8:30 p.m. the next day. For each past hour you have to subtract 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Example: you knocked him out at 10:30 p.m. -> he will wake up in 60 minutes - 2,5 - 2,5 = 55 minutes
At level 26, it is the first time that the Megalosaurus needs more than an hour to be tamed.. So be prepared to knock him out twice or three times
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
