Are you considering taming a fish-eating apex predator of the amphibious (but mostly land) variety? Who am I kidding, you probably are! But for starters; in this tip is what I would recommend bringing or using! You, however can tame this beast in whatever way you think will work! However it’s also good to know what your getting into, now let’s get started! Let’s start with supplies!; Since we are dealing with a apex predator, Be sure to consider packing flak armor sets! As this is the best, cheapest armor to make! Next on the shopping list is the narcotics! When taming this beast it’s best to know that it’s torpor goes down exeedingly quick so I would suggest about 100 / 200 biotoxin to keep it asleep, next be sure to pack taming supplies! I would suggest packing kibble, It likes superior kibble I’m pretty sure, (be sure to check as I might be wrong!) if you don’t have access to kibble, the next step down will be prime fish meat! Also i suggest bringing a fast flying tame, why? For its size, do NOT underestimate its speed, it uses it to eithor run you down or, in this case run away! Now there is two stances the spinosaurus will use! The primary stance it most commonly uses
Is it’s quad-pedal stance, it will stand on all 4s and grants it with a very quick way of getting somewhere, it’s downside is it’s maneuverability to turn! It’s other stance is Bi-pedal, this stance is used primarily by the spino for a damage boost and maneuvering, it’s downside however is it moves way slower than quad pedal, quad pedal doesn’t do nearly as much damage as bipedal! I suggest using bear traps, as the net gun won’t bring this apex predator down, (chain bolas work too!) also consider bringing about 100 tranq arrows or more cut that in half will be the amount of darts you will need,! Taming is similar to that of the most renowned apex predator of the ark commonly known as the giganotasaurus! The spinos torpor goes down half of a 1/3s of that of a gigas! Taming might take a while depending on what you are useing! You now have yourself the fish eating apex predator known as the spino! A very quick and great battle mount in diffrent stances! Also makes a decent bossbattle creature! Hope this helped, and as always happy taming, and take care! :D
If you spawned near a decent cliff, that works. I just had to shoot at the spino with a crossbow and tranq arrows- I forgot how many, but bring at least 50 just in case. it has very high torpor, and it was halfway in the water. I used about- hmm, maybe 30- 40 narcotics? I was just being safe, but it’s best to be prepared. Bring a lot- 50-80. I brought around 90-100. I swam to it with a sarco and used the sarco as a temporary boat to tend to the sleeping spino. I did this at around level 30- it’s not too difficult if you have a decent cliff.
I have two ways you can use to tame tame this. One for lower levels and one for higher levels.
First what you need (based of my experience)
About 30 tranq darts (you might need more or lees depending on wich method you use (etc))
About 30 narotics
A lot of fish meat (or prime fish meat) (or kibble)
And some bio toxin
1st : the easy way. This way dosen’t require dying all the time but you can only do it if you have large bear traps. What you do is you put the bear traps a bit away for each other in a line and run up to it and then to the traps. Then shoot it with tranq darts. If you don’t knock it out let it chase you to the next bear trap and tranq it again. It took me about 30 tranq darts (I missed some). Then feed it prime fish meat (or normal but normal takes longer) or you can do it the 2nd way
2nd way; This is for lower levels who have a bow and tranq arrows but not a bear trap. What you do is :
.shoot from distance with tranq arrows and run and shoot. If you die go back and continue shooting and running. When you knock it out put fish meat in it’s inventory (might take a while) and don’t forget the narotics!.
A good way to get it unconscious without a flying dinosaur is by making 10 stone pillars, 10 wooden ladders then climbing up the pillars and shoot it with tranq darts or arrows, it can't break stone fast so ur safe. Pls don't use less than 10 pillars, I tried and I got pushed of the pillar and just died:( Sorry for my bad English. Hope this helped
I am a noob just started the game a week ago, I was super into spino. As one killed me the first day. I am level 27 and tamed one, can't ride it but still looks so cool.
This is how , first you need butt load of stones, wood and thatch. Like 2700 stone, 1600 wood, 1000 thatch. I made 9 stone foundations in 3×3, then put door frames around it and make it 3 door frames high so it can't climb it , put stone stare case from the side spino is closest to, put pillars under it to support. You are 1/4 way there. Get Tranq arrows( depending upon level of dino)and a crossbow. I shot it once and it caught and killed me, i got back and he was still there so i did it all again and got him in , tranq him till he feel asleep, used fish meat and bio toxin and there you go now you have a spino , go wild
Their babies are insanely strong. I breeded my lv 40 and the baby was even stronger then both of them combined! I definitely recommend breeding these guys. Also. Now I can take on that stupid alpha Rex. Don’t worry. I fully imprinted this little guy just like all my other ones. Every one ☝️ is one strength for my baby spino
