Take double nay, triple the amount of tranq arrows (if thats what ur using) as half of the shots you take won’t actually hit due to a weird hitbox. Also take excess narcotics as this poor birb gets nightmares and likes to wake up quick!
The easiest, EASIEST way to tame a Quetzal, is to go to a GEN 2 server, fly up to it yourself, shoot a net at it fall to the ground with and hit with tranq darts. Wash rinse repeat until ready to tame, then it's all down hill from there, unless there's a predator near by. Regardless of what you do, you need to prep before hand, bring a lit of Narco, tranq darts and food (dealers choice/ refer to doddex). Then it's all yours.
The fun way is to jump off and grapple to your argie and whistle it to attack and since argies are slow it won’t catch up in time so tranq till it goes out also bring parachutes and consider liking so more people will know
If you drop a quetzal due to knockout, and it lands next to a giga...just know, the quetzal belong to the giga. Now you get to watch your would be quetzal get eaten by a giga. Now you can go home and cry.
If you play duo grab your friend with Argent and chase Quetzal. I Recommend 2x Longneck rifle on higher level and second Argent on follow to fast swap when first gets tired. I broke one and almost second rifle on lvl135. 150 darts were enough even with some misses. Prepare to build trap with stone dino doors to protect him. Ours dropped near 145 alfa raptor… Rip Flying Truck. It was good Argent :(
