Knocking out without a Quetzal in an easy way; take a high melee Scorpion, put it on aggressive and grab it with a high stamina and decent speed Argy. Then fly next to the Quetzal and follow it, until the Scorpion knocked it out.
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.
