How do I tame a mosasaurus? Tips and strategies on taming and knocking out a mosasaurus.
TIPP: Easy Taming
The Mosasaurus is a deepsea creature, that means you can easily knock him out with this Trick. (you should use a basilosaurus because of his health and the immunity effects)
1) Swimm down to the deepsea
2) Let the Mosa follow you up
3) If you swimm high enought he will stop chasing you
4) When he Stops chasing you, just shoot at him with tranqs (the higher your Crossbow damage the faster he gets knocked)
5) Repeat the first steps if he swimms too far away from you
6) knock him out and feed him some Quetzal Kibbel
7) Enjoy your Aquatic Giant
BONUS TIPP: He spawn around the carno Island and i would recommend to not go too far from your basilosaurus while shooting the Mosa Because you are f*cked if some eals appear and you cant mount your Basilo to kill them (He is immune to the Shocking effect)
Its pretty easy with an icthy and cooked fish meat if yk what i mean
It's says it takes 8 quetz kibble for a 150 mosa and 7 for a 145. I tamed a lvl 145 female mosa with 4 quetz kibble. Up for ark mobile players to see.
JUST TAME A SQUID GRAB THE MOSA,DISMOUNT THE SQUID.....and put the Squid on passive I will no let go of the mosa.AND THEN THE SQUID WILL BE DOING TORPOR AND ALSO YOU CAN HARPOON IT OUT AND TAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMME!!!!
I tamed this guy with raw fish meat and it took at least seven ark days
Center tip: as they have added the mosa to the center I've found the easiest way to knock one out is find one close to the bubbles get its Agro and swim in the bubble the mosa will get stuck and it can't hit you. Also this gives you unlimited oxygen and sanctuary from being attacked by anything else. ðŸ¤˜ðŸ¼

Water giga, carries base, need I say more
DONT FIGHT JELLYFISH WITH THESE I made this mistake and my 261 mosa died.
Underwater caves are very helpful for knocking these guys out. Always bring extra tranqs as this thing is basically the giga of the sea and torpor drops very fast.
Get 250 tranq arrow and 3 crossbow I recommend using Lazarus chowder too. Go deep down with any aquatic mount except for basilo because it takes damage in deep area in ocean. Next find a mosa recommend taming low level it is faster to tame. Next when you find a mosa shoot it with tranq arrow it will take maybe 126 shots on mosa. When it's knocked out maintaine its torpor with bio toxin or narc. The kibble for mosa is the extordanary kibble. The egg are extra large egg for the extordanary kibble. Also cooked prime meat can go effectively to 6%. However Raw meat will take half as long. You would need 450 narc for the mosasaur. Put the food of your choice and narc or bio toxin in it inventory. Maintaine it's torpor so it doesn't wake up until its tamed. If this was helpful please like on it. The ability of the mosasaur is a powerful bite. The fact about the mosa is its bite is more powerful than the rex. Their saddle can be learned a level 78 and crafted in Smith with hide fiber and metal ingots. That's all I got for today thank you for reading and have your self a very amazing day!
Is it just me or all of the mosa in my solo server is extinct? I went all the way to carno island but didn't find one. Where's the easiest place to find a wild mosa? Please help me, So I can get my aquatic giant. Thanks 😊
Get diplocaulus, level its weight a hell lot, when see mosa, dismount and shoot tranq arrows, maybe darts if possible, go up bcuz it does not go up in a certain height, there you go. (diplocaulus gives you inf oxygen when on mount)
This is more of a question but a level 14 one spawned near herbivore island where I live but it wrecked me and my level 40 basilosaurus. I saw tips saying I should get it to follow me and there are ammonites down there but that agros everything. I can’t afford to miss a shot though.
Never ever shoot it with a bullet or it will die immediately so use a crossbow shoot it 10-20 times and feed quetz kibble.
Go to fjordur n travel around deep cliffs not to deep ocean pit for a non violent easy mosa tame just a chase beware of the paparazzi though
JUST KEEP SWIMMING!!!!!! JUST KEEP FU**ING SWIMMING!!!
Want to tame a Coelecanth | 100x? Look over here! Before we start, let's begin!
-Taming Food (Kibble/ Meat, Soothing Balm if on Mobile)
NOTE: Mosas prefer meat of the raw category over fish (You can use mutton too).
-Knockout Weapon (Crossbow (Tranq/ Toxicant Arrows), Longneck (Tranq/ Shocking Tranq Darts) )
-Scuba Gear (Not needed but must follow method 2 if not worn)
-Water Mount (Ichthy recommended)
Now, you're ready!
So, I would use these 3 methods for Mosas. Make sure to follow Method 2 if you did not bring scuba gear!
Method 1: TRAP
This method can be done by constructing a Argentavis trap (2 behemoth dino gateway, 2 dino gateway, 2 behemoth dino gate) and a small water mount (Recommended Ichthy) is required. Place the 2 normal gateways in a vertical position and add the Behemoth Gates to each side. Put both gates on both gateways on close off one side. Next, lure the Mosa in and swim out the gaps in between each gate with your mount. Quickly close off the opened side and boom! The Mosa is trapped. Begin the taming process and tame. Make sure to keep an eye on the torpor and feed it your narcotics/ biotoxin regularly, as it drains super fast!
Method 2: No Scuba Method
This method might be a little bit more tedious but it is very worth it as the method is extremely cheap without the need for gates and scuba. Get on your mount and lure the Mosa to a underwater RESOURCE cave, not the ARTIFACT caves. Lure it into the entrance and it should be stuck. Just shoot down the Mosa and go back up to the cave if you run low on Oxygen. Make sure to watch out when the Mosa torpor runs as it runs quite fast! After you have your Mosa knocked out, begin the taming process and welcome a new tame to your aquatic tame collection!
Method 3: The Cheaper Method
This method still requires scuba, but it does not require luring Mosas to caves. Wild Mosas have a certain limit they cannot swim across. Find that limit and park your mount above it. Swim under the limit to aggro and tranq and swim above the limit to de-aggro. Repeat this process and knock it out and tame!
Now that you have a Mosa, let's take a look at it:
Mosas are strong and tanky aquatic mounts, not to mention the decent speed. Their saddle is unlocked at 78. However, they have a platform saddle that is unlocke at 93. The normal saddle is pretty cheap for that level. The Mosa does not have any secondary attacks that I know of, only one downside which is that they are prone to electrocution effects, making it an unviable option for caves. However, they are great for underwater drop runs (Not in caves ofc), but be wary of the occasional electrocution.
That's all I had for this tip. Make sure to check out my other tips!
Previous tip: How to tame a Spino
-Your average ARK Mobile player :))
I play easy mode on mobile and I rode a Ichthy shot tranq arrows at it and it did not agro… I shot it 15-20 times with a master craft crossbow and it completely ignored me like I did not exist. Mosa WILL agro at a meg, plesiosaur or basil. easiest way to tame a Mosa.
k tamed Mr snappy now for alan... nah I'll skip that.
