On mobile, when I was new and low level but wanted to tame spinos - I used to bring in some life bait to the spinos to distract it from attacking me (tamed carbos and parasaurs with high health, around 800 or 1200) or let it aggro a wild Dino for a bit, and when it focuses on the Dino bait, I hop to a safe distance and tranq it until it was knocked out. It took me at least 10-30 tranq arrows.
I just give it raw fish, and when taming it took too much time and the torpor bar starts draining fast I give it some narcotics or bio toxin I get from killing nearby cnidarias (at least 60 narcotics or 30+ bio toxins) then just wait.
Kept doing it until I have like 4 spinos run after runs.
The spinos often spawn on the coasts and beaches in the footpaw region which is where I usually found them. Sometimes they do spawn in the river near the volcano and the waterfall and rivers in the redwood forest.
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
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
If you can’t trap it, find a way to stand on a cliff or something and shoot down at it until it runs away, then follow it. (Little something for those who don’t wanna try to lure it into a trap like me)
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
