Make a taming room with dino gate and door. Eat a few rare flowers and fly over the jungle to agro a few pteras. Fly back to room, dismount and enter the room with pteras following. Shut gate, exit door, wait for buff to drop, safely tame at your leisure.
If you find a level 5 one of these and gonna tame make sure you have 2 prime meat if it's normal all settings is normal and prime meat gives it 50% taming thing please up this so people who want this can see it
Bola it. Tranq it out. Have Narco berries or narcotic already prepared to be force fed to it (the torpor drains relatively fast and it is easier to have it already than panic berry picking). When I first started playing I didn’t know you select an item in your inventory and it highlights. Now if you hold down the selection it will transfer the item into the tame’s inventory. Now you can force feed Narco berries or narcotics to the Dino to keep it asleep (right trigger on console). If you have a LOT of a particular thing you want transferred in bulk (like prime meat singles) type “prime” into the little search bar at the top of the inventory containing the prime and hit the criss/cross arrow button next to it and all the prime will select and transfer all at once. Happy hunting.
If you bola this then tranq it you can easily tame this by starving it. YOU WILL NEED NARCOTICS. Next make dodo kibble or use the chef station on mobile. Once starved by about 400 food points put the kibble in And it will tame in less than 30 seconds
So in my experience their torpor runs down quick so once u have knocked it out u definitely need narcotics. I recommend bio toxin cause it easy to get and it didn’t drain the health like it says. All u need to do to get bio toxin is lure jelly fish to the shore and shoot them with a bow, or cross bow from under water. Hope this is helpful to my fellow survivalist.
Start off by throwing a Bola at it. If your target is lower than L30, a slingshot will work fine, otherwise use tranq arrows. Aim for the head to deal max torpor and minimal damage. Tranq users, be sure not to shoot your tame after it's unconscious. Feed it meat.
The Ptera has 3 moves it can use, only accessible while flying.
1. Swiping up on the left side triggers a grab motion that deals no damage. You can pick up Dilos, compys, lystros and dodos this way and carry them with you. They cannot damage you while being held, but they can deal damage when you grab them.
2. Tapping on the left triggers the basic attack, a stab with the beak.
3. You will want to reconfigure your controls for this. I suggest setting Right Multi-tap to "Reload/Alt Attack 2" in the Game Controls. That said, this triggers a barrel roll that deals significant damage but also costs a lot of stamina. Use it for a burst of speed or to finish off an opponent.
I had a Pteranodon and we where hunting terror birds and on the way there I landed her because she was tired and then a spino attacked me. My pteranodon attacked and was killed I took out my pistol and killed the spino. I now shall kill all spinos.
