DO NOT listen to the person who wrote the following comment: “DO NOT tame in the lower south cave. It will get stuck on the way out and be trapped there forever.”. If it can’t (which will most likely be the case if tamed down there, because (in my experience) Sarcos struggle just entering the cave with how wide they are. But don’t listen to that guy. Just summon it out in the “Request Creature” tab and wait for it to teleport (I have summoned creatures out of the cave when they get stuck and they teleport just fine). Share this with anyone you know who struggles with that.
I recommend taming one, they are super fast in the water, and they do a LOT of damage. I have tamed carnos and therizos but my one Sarco is the strongest one, I easily killed a megalodon and mine is only level 25, I only leveled up the stamina, speed and melee strength. Knocking it put is easy, just get it to follow you on land then throw some tranq arrows or darts to knock it out and feed it raw meat
I see all these comments on how to tame it lol. Easy. Shoot it in the face while walking backwards job done. None of this tame pen rubbish or hugging its legs. If you get one in the swamp your gonna want to lure it out of the swamp though
Get a bow with trans arrows (1-5) for low level, go on a rock if you are low level and shoot it with tranqs. However wait for it to finish attacking animals and other Dino’s or it may be killed by them when unconscious.
Just keep a slight distance away and shoot narco arrows into it's head. If you upgrade your movement speed some (idk how much exactly), you could just keep walking backwards to keep the sarco from reaching you since it never runs on land (at least none of them ever did for me).
This could actually be your first tame, just make sure it's alone then punch it from the back and it will try to turn around, just keep moving and try to be behind it and keep punching, it can't hit you, i was just messing around in a new server and i saw one of those i was going to leave anyways so i went to it from the back and kept punching it and it couldn't even turn and hit me and make sure you keep it away from water
