I have 8 very high level bats protecting my Dino pen and during an offline raid on me the bats swarmed the three raiders and managed to kill all three of them. The had journeyman Flak and mastercraft weaponry. So in the near future I will be taming many more of them
(Im the person who submitted the tip starting with: This bat does the same amount of damage as the Carno 35 damage). To tame the bat, you must have bug repellent on to prevent the creature from attacking you. You must non-violently/passively tame it meaning you feed it by NOT KNOCKING IT OUT, the best food to use is raw prime meat.
I hope this is helpful because this creature is perfect for a bodyguard.
Tip: They do extra damage against armour and destroy it quickly making this tame useful for pvp.
This bat does the same amount of damage as a Carno 35 damage, and due to this being easy to tame (kind of, I will explain later), a pack of these are effective against players and SOME dinosaurs. There are some dinosaurs with a large AOE like the Bronto so avoid engaging in battles with those types of creatures. I also heard that they have a rabies skill which drains the health of the victim, up if it’s true, down if it’s false.
Cave onyc when hit give torper (idk but I don’t think all cave onycs gives torpor) epic defense (maybe even a giga is ez kill)very small and annoying to hit and medium hp up if you find this helping you
These creatures “Bats” I’ve been told, can carry rabies as in of real life if you have an Arthropleaura (Arthro) will not aggro them and makes it easy for the tame the best damage calculated from level 1-80 always need 20-30 meat but level 10’s use 10 meat and is actually an Easter egg I’ve been told I myself LIVE in a cave and have four of them. I recommend using these amazing creatures as guards as they can outmaneuver even the great Giganotosaurus (Giga) amazing tames and will inflict Rabies virus or Mega Rabies virus on its said enemies therefore making it the best guard tame and for an unknown reason, are EXTREMELY underrated in my opinion they should be given more respect and given credit
Find me at Steam as by my account name Dvmarcantoni
DISCLAIMER: does not tame in Ark: Genensis but works one on the following electronic forms: Ark: Mobile, Ark: PC
They’re useful for combat but it would be nice if it could latch to your back and give you a second jump, to make it just a bit more useful like the rest of the dinos. Double jump Onyx backpack would be nice
Console/mobile TLC is needed. You should be able to have Onyc latch to your back and give you a double jump or something special. Great for base security and destroying armor, doesn’t drop feces or eggs however.
Passive tame, so repellant, prime meat, and patience are needed.
