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
Don't tame one in the transition of day-night. I was feeding him kibble, he was about to be tamed and darkness fell... He got up, I had to re-tranq him and even though he didn't lose a lot of the taming bar, my kibble disappeared :(
Bewere megalosaurus are stronger then rexes and spinos the only thing stronger then a megalsaures is a giga what I said doesn’t in clued any fliers or herbivores Dino’s in ark like Weverns who can kill them with there fire don’t tame at night trust me
These bad boys/girls only spawn in the artifact of the cleaver cave on mobile. They’re relentless during the night time so only knockout during day time. Oviraptor eggs will be the most time consuming part of trying to tame a mega.
They look cute ,when they are sleeping.
Knock them out early morning (game time), they are very slow and won't wake up during taming process.In Ragnarok there is a mountain cave between lava biom and Viking bay. You can find them there .fly through sea area the cave will be easily spotted .
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
When taming a high level megalosaurus, you need to put down right when night starts. It sounds counterproductive because it's stronger, but it allows for maximum starve time since you will need to put it down again the following night. If you don't do it this way, you may end up needing to put it down a third time, which could very likely be the death of it since it won't regain any health over that time.
Also, tame with a friend because the megalosaurus will pick you up into its jaws which makes it very hard to do solo without dying. Your tribe mate can attack the Dino and cause him to drop you.
