Easily knocked out when you use a bloa. When stuck shoot in head while you can and itll go down quickly. Tranq darts make the process quicker, but arrows will do the job just fine. They can be picked up and dropped into safe taming cages by argies to make this easy tame all the more easy.
Build a raft 3 tall with a dinosaur gate on 1 side and ramps leading up from one of the outsides... agros the Saber, run up the ramp and drop in... have doorway next to the dinos gate... once it's in run out and shoot it through the door way.. can't hit you and it can't get through the door... easy tame just don't drive off :P
Have 2 people. One person carry the sabertooth with the argy or if you want, quetz/wyvern. The other person tranqs it. The saber will stay still, allowing head shots with the right positions, both saber and the shooter. The saber will fall from the from being carried to the ground when unconscious. This way, you can tame the sabertooth in your base or where ever you want/need.
Taming a lvl 120 saber or above takes time but it helps kill many different dinos just get its health up to at least 3000 and if it's not already get damage up to 200. You will love it.... until game lags and u can't get back on until the next day and it dies
To easily KO a saber, use a longneck rifle(tranq dart) or use a normal bow(tranq arrow). With a fast mount, Make the saber fall in a trap atleast 4×4 foundations big and 1 wall tall with doorways. Shoot the saber with tranqs every 4-10 seconds till it sleeps. Sabers have fairly slow torpor drain so for a lvl 120 it will only take 250 narcotics when taming it woth meat. Once the taming proccess is done, let the saber naturally lvl up and upgrade its health to a comfortable amount and then upgrade a bit of weight and melee.
Go to Carnavore island on a frog preferably (it’s fast and maneuver able if you need to escape) then there is an army of Sabertooths, if riding a frog on the ps4 press l2 to do the sweep tounge/topor attack and it should knockout a few and you could have a Sabertooth army. JUST BE CAREFUL OF CARNOS REX’S AND ANNOYING RAPTORS AND SCORPIONS.Good Luck!
Be careful when using a crossbow and tranqs, make sure to space out your shots by 5 seconds- their health goes down quickly. I absolutely love them as a mount they are fast with high stamina. Happy hunting!
