At first these guys are passive and tame and can be given any type of berry. (Mejoberry is recommended) do not run up to its face. It will run away and it will keep running.(other monkeys near it will also run away too) simply crouch and feed it berries. Once tamed, they will love you forever.(they are a shoulder mount so put them on your shoulder and take them EVERYWHERE) they have a really cool ability to through poop at the enemy that is chasing or if it is your target. When it through the poop if it lands it will disable there ability to sprint for a little while.( and will take small amounts of dmg too while the poop is on them). I hope you found this guide helpful.please up this if so. If not helpful PLEASE DON’T DOWN THIS!!!!!
Always stay crouched while taming. And never get close enough to touch it. While following the monkey, if the monkey ever stops, its very likely It will turn and start to walk in a different direction. So be aware that it might walk in your direction. Hope this helps : )
Mobile Taming: Easy! Just don’t get to close! It’s probably one of the easiest things to tame! Mejoberries do great, but if you have Dodo kibble, then use that. They are handfed, so don’t get violent!
Domesticación móvil: fácil! No te acerques demasiado! Es probablemente una de las domar! Las mejoberries son excelentes, pero si tienes croquetas Dodo, úsalas. Están alimentados a Mano, así que no te pongas violento!
There is a bug while taming these guys. Sometimes after the first one or two berries, it’s hunger will stop going down, and it’s health will start draining. If this happens the tame is a lost cause. My theory is that somehow the coding for the hunger and health stats got mixed up and the health drains instead of hunger. Hope this helps to not waste your time!
Turn around and walk backward about ten feet every time you feed it berries then turn back around and see which way it turns and then sneak around it, feed it berries,repeat EASY TAME (by the way remain crouched the whole time and have LOTS OF PATIENCE!!!)
Really, their taming strategy is similar to their bigger counterparts, Gigantopithicus. All you have is: Step 1: Get a mejoberry plant, and get it to produce max berries. Step 2: Find a meso. They tend to hang around dangerous areas, so be careful. They enjoy hanging around beaches where there IS jungle behind. Step 3: Eliminate all danger in the area before starting. Step 4: Crouch and put the mejoberries in your hot bar. Now switch to the mejoberries. Step 5: Walk behind the meso, and feed it once. Walk backwards and see which way it turns. Whenever you feed it or it stops walking, walk backwards and see what direction it turns. Go behind it again. Step 5: Repeat step 4 until it's tamed. Step 6: Once it's tamed, if your base is really far away, put it on a rock, whistle stop, and go back home. Request your meso when you're there. If your base isn't that far away, and no danger is in your way, pick up your meso and whistle stop. Walk back home. Step 7: Name your meso, and I reccomend setting it on wander in your house. Step 8: Congrats! You tamed a meso! Tip: These guys drop human poop instead of small animal poop. 2nd Tip: They have an attack when they throw poop at creatures and/or people. Way to insult your friends and annoying creatures! Please ^ if this was helpful!
This has to be one of the best shoulder mounts (like as a normal shoulder mount not like a ferox that transforms) because of their poop throwing power enemy dinos and players usually have difficulty getting away and they also are great for raiding because they can unlock doors and probably won't be seen
You can place helmets on it too. I place my mining helmet on my monkey and use it as a source of light at my base. But you cannot see the light if the monkey is on your shoulder and your looking in first person. You can see the light in the orbital camera, While riding on another Dino in 3rd person, and when the monkey is on another persons sholder or on the ground. Hopes this comes in handy : )
