Step 1= Bola raptor or climb on high rock

Step 3= make sure not other baddies in area
Step 4= wait for the hunger to go about half way down

Heres what my 3 man tribe did pm the island...coords, 77.1, 65..built a gated base on the river (behemoth gates), theres an alpha raptor spawn nearby, often two or three of them around base all the time, great xp and loot...but you CANNOT TAME ALPHAS. but you can use doorframes and another behemoth gate to build a taming pen off your perimeter wall, works great, lead something in (like a raptor), it cant fit thru doorframes, tranq and tame, open the inside gate when complete and walk it into base
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...... :'((
To tame follow these steps
Step 1: Find a high level
Step 2: Bola it
Step 3: Use tranq arrows to knock out
Step 4: Repeat on opposite gender
Step 5: Breed for a berry good army and make sure your saddle is on the leader
2.Craft wooden bat/club.
3.Collect meat for the raptor.
4.Open quest: Hunt: Raptor, and get out your map and compass and find the raptor on the map, it’s location should be marked with a circle. Make sure you have the bola hotbarred.
5.When you see the raptor, get out your bola and throw it at the raptor immediately.
6.Get behind the raptor, as while trapped in the bola, it can still attack from the front.
7.Hit it on the tail until it falls unconscious, then feed it your recently claimed raw meat, and wait.
8.Should enough time pass, you shall have your raptor! Now train it with caution as while they are great damage dealers, they aren’t the tankiest in terms of health, so leveling that up is top priority. Thx for reading
