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.
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!
U can hit them with a club early game without getting hit even once, u just have to time it right, take care not to try it if there are more than 2 tho... Rotten Flesh works way better and can tame 'em within 5 mins
What I did was I used a longneck rifle with darts after killing mate stay like on a hill and shoot it to me one dart but any other type tranq works but I suggest
Longneck rifle with a few darts! Also they swim under water so WIN WIN!!
30 tranq arrows
Rotten meat to tame
Have bigger movement speed and meele damage
Find isolated one
Shoot 1 arrow at him and run then turn araund shoot him again
When he starts to flee just run and start hitting him with fists(thats why you need bigger meele damage)until he gets knocked...feed with rotten meat and you tamed it
Before all that have at least 2 dinos that can protect you if
other in pack attacks you..on my first try i did it withouth dinos i knocked 1 but pack stung me and knocked me out and i died so thats why..
It takes about 2-3 toxicant arrows to knock it out depending on the level but usually it takes 3-4 on a high level pulmo
Its tail strike causes torpor so beware you will be vulnerable to predators when it knocks you out
