I don't know why the guy saying they're not affected by Bolas is at the top. I just hit a level 5 wild in the mountain area with a bola right in the legs and it froze in place perfectly, no issues. BOLAS WORK, BUT YOU HAVE TO HIT THE LEGS, THE THIN SKITTERY EASY TO MISS LEGS.
I had a loaded shot gun in hand, thought I could one shot the pulmonoscorpius. I forgot to level up my torpor so this dude knocked me out straight away and then a pack of wolfs came to kill me while I was unconscious. Careful not to get knocked out!!
Bola it, shoot it in the head with tranq darts, feed it spoiled meat! A very effective and easy tame. Be careful though, they're hard to see in grassy areas. I was taming a sabertooth once when it came up out of nowhere, I went unconscious before I could even run away. It took me 5 tries to get my stuff back from my dead body because the scorpian was always there. In the end, surpinsgly, my sabertooth survived the taming process and I ended up taming the scorpian right after!
this would’ve been so helpful to know. see I tried to tame one but i had no spoiled meat. and i died and lost my stuff in the redwoods and couldn’t get it back but all i ever needed was a bola and meat. yes it says reg meat works. not as good but it also does eat it faster then spoiled meat its just in the end use spoiled meat if you have some. its quicker
