Step 1= Bola raptor or climb on high rock
Step 2= Tranq out (recommend tranq arrows etc)
Step 3= make sure not other baddies in area
Step 4= wait for the hunger to go about half way down
Step 5= after waiting give raw meat,mutton,prime,kibble etc
If you are a beginner, on easy mode, this thing is COMPLETELY AWESOME. It takes about 50 cooked meat for a lvl 30 but taming is EXTREMELY FAST. Just bola its face! Then slingshot its face! Then feed its FACE. And BAAAAAM RAPTOR
These creatures are fantastic! If you ask it to target a animal, like a para it can kill it it like, 2 seconds.
How To Tame:
1. I recommend being high like on a rock.
2. Bola it
3. Make sure to be behind the raptor, you can knock it out with fists, club, traq, etc.
4. Feed it raw meat if you don’t have anything else ( You can use soothing balm.)
5. Name your raptor! Enjoy!
Just tamed a level 122 on Dead Island no kibble and only a few narcs on me. Had to fight off a scorpion and a sabertooth to keep from it waking up. As the tame was close to finishing I was attacked from behind by two scorpions and they knock me out. As I'm getting attacked by them and I am sure that I am a goner, the raptor tames, gets the them off of me, and kills both of the scorpions. I wait in horror as my consciousness returns, hoping that I am not going to die to a patrol. I didn't, and I turn around and see a Rex almost close enough to aggro me. I put my raptor on follow ran to my raft, and escaped the island as the Rex was chasing me. I named him Saving Grace on the way back, but as I am passing the swamp, a sarco attacks my raft. It knocks my beloved raptor off, and it was swarmed by the sarco and a group of megapiranha. I try to call it to follow, and it dies almost instantly. I am utterly devastated and heartbroken...... :'((
Easy and useful for the entire game, bola and crossbow to the face and they're yours (a club can also do the trick tho) just try to find one that's alone
You can also just climb to a rock to tranq it but it's a bit harder
