These guys will be your best friend.
I am not joking.
I play mobile, single player, and I have one named Butch, tamed him when I was at level 20 something and him level 17 I believe, he’s now level 43 and the only place he doesn’t go with me is underwater and caves.
Do no be scared grabbing one, I was terrified taming Butch, but in all honesty he wasn’t that bad, I was just paranoid. While narcotics are good to use, I find biotoxin even better and it easily knocks a spino nearly back to full tempor.
I used a crossbow and stood on a sharp cliff face, letting butch run around and kill the other animals in the water, which did actually distract him long enough to knock him right out. I highly suggest trying to grab one in the easier areas, mine being from the Long: 40 Lat: 80 area. Here you can easily get biotoxin too, as the jellies spawn in the area pretty frequently, it being a low level area and they’re easy to get to with a crossbow!
Happy taming fellow survivors, good luck!
I tamed 2 spinos high lvl with a tribe mate and we just used him as bait and got the spino wedged in a rock or tree and just shot arrows and we just started a few hours ago the second one we just let in attack our spino then knocked it out whill it was attacking get about 200 arrows and a cross bow
It's quite hard to tame of these bad boys, unless you know how to do it. Spinos get distracted EXTREMELY easily, even a coel will make them stop chasing you, so by FAR the best way to tame them is to trap them. Use 3x3 stone foundations. then build 12 doorframes on each side as walls, and put a ramp big enough for the spino to walk on. You know, the classic trap. Kite them into it(the have a big turning raidos on all 4, so take note of it) and then trap them. They are quite fast so use something fast too, like an argy or ptero. Then, once trapped, knock em out with tranq darts, and give them exceptional (or argy kibble on mobile) kibble, if u can't get that use raw prime fish meat. Once tamed (it will take a while, get at least 300 narcos, even if ur using kibble) and once tamed, slap a saddle on it and ur good to go!
Another sad story. I had a spino named Captain Fin. He was red and was really strong. I had him for one day before the tragic thing happened😟. I was on a metal run and it was super far, and after I got the metal I started heading back. I was really close to my base when he ran out of stamina but right then my game crashed! I came back as soon as possible but I had died so I went out to look for my spino, but the sky turned super yellow and hot and I couldn’t see him so I had no choice but to go back. Then while I was helpless in my base I saw words saying, “captain Fin level 76 killed by Therezino lvl 80. :(
So anyways all this to say, spinos are great tames!
How I got mine:
Get a pteranodon
Check for other creatures nearby
Land on a really tall, unclimbable rock
Go ham with any tranquilising weapon
Feed much narcotic
Kill stuff for meat and prime
There you go sir, 1 spino free of charge
All you need are some tranqs and a sword and a sickle, oh and armour. Knock out the spino (anyway you would like to do it). Then punch a sabertooth salmon and wait, be prepared for battle. All the sabertooth salmon will start attacking you, I like to call this a "party". After you kill all of them with your sword, or really whatever you want, use the sickle oh then and get HUNDREDS of prime fish meat. Now take that spino!!!
Ark 101 taming all large dinos. 4x4 behemoth trap. Leave a space that is person sized that you can shoot through. Use ptera or argy to bait dino into trap. Fly over the other side where dino in trap can't see you. Loop around and close open gate. Trapped. Clear dilos and other junk around trap. Knock out the large dino in trap and tame peacefully protected by gates. Ive used this method on diplos, brontos, gigas, spinos, rexes, allos, theri, etc. All in one trap.
Build yourself a taming pin, 5×5 floor, either use stone dino gate or wooden ramps for entry and use stone door frame or pillar built 3-4x tall, to ensure you don't get attack. Meanwhile taming it with a bow/cross with tranq arrow use their preferred taming food and always have Narcs to feed it.
dude it's so easy to tame these powerful dinos just get on a cliff or high rocks where they can hit u then tranq arrow their faces I did it in no time if u want turn up the tame right so u dont wait hours taming lol I used narcotics and bio toxic and I am pretty new at the game try to get low level ones bc it's easier and u can level it up overtime by killing low stuff plus at decent levels ot can take out t rex no problem
stand on a high cliff and shoot it or keep shootong it and running away on a raptor until it's knocked out. it gets distracted very easly by fish, sharks and manta's (even while chasing you) so you may want to shoot it while it's distracted.
