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
Well it has good loot from it if beginners like me I killed 1 today it has a advace weapons or tools on it.And also it just level 1 to 5 I just killed it by just using a bow and arrow and a tamed parasuar I'd killed it so hit the up arrow so early ark survival players can it
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.
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
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
It's better to tame one you find at a beach/river than one in the swamp. The swamp has a lot of dangers that can make taming in there a nightmare (namely titanboa and other sarco, but leeches are not fun either)
You can find them near pretty much any body of water. Sometimes they are hard to see if they are in the water. They will follow you out of the water, since they are much slower on land try to lead them away from the water.
