Try to square it away from the swamp if it happens to fly towards there. Don’t be like me and let it fall in the swamp. Don’t be like me and then attack the Sarco and Boas attacking your Quetzal. You will kill the Quetzal and disappoint your friends and family since you searched for it for multiple hours. Don’t be like me kids.
Build a large metal base on it and call it A-47 pretzel and get a full squad of people with riot gear and assault rifles. Jump off the quetz (all lo except flier) onto the enemies base with parachutes and start shooting and throwing gernades. Congrats! U have a call of duty simulator. Paint riot gear green for maximum effect.
Me and my friend spotted a level 90 tek quetzal near the redwoods and the swamp. He picked me up with an Argy and I shot it with tranqs. Of course, it got knocked out right over the river. We were so mad. We took a look in its inventory and saw that it wasn’t losing oxygen. I guess the game glitched or something, because it was submerged and it still didn’t die. We were able to tame it. Perhaps tek creatures don’t lose oxygen because they can’t breathe? Idk.
