I recommend using a longneck rifle with tranqdarts. Headshots do more physical damage and less torpor. Aim for the sail and the neck. Use argent kibble. Second prime fish, third mutton. When tamed, use a quetzal with a platform saddle to transport it to base.
It can’t destroy stone so just make a stone foundation and build the stone walls about 10 high. Be sure to bring ladders and ceilings to make a little snipers nest. Also bring some narcotics because torpor drains fast. I used cooked prime meat to tame mine but just any meat will suit. Pretty easy tame this way for a big scary dino
Build a small stone room of stone with a reinforced door so it can't get in and make some openings in it so you can tranq it out from inside and stay untouched. Once knocked out use fish meat or kibble, if not just use meat but don't cook anything because it takes longer, uses more, and reduces effectiveness.
When knocking them out, u just need to sit on a small ledge that they cant climb and shoot them and once u do that, put raw meat and bio toxins. Why bio toxins? Becuase u can force feed them toxinsto keep em knocked out. Ps, i dont know if u can force feed on pc or console. (Im a mobile player)
Spinos are way faster since the TLC 2 patch, so if you are shooting it from a cliff they are a pain to hit and when they run away it is almost impossible to keep up. If you ko it, try to do it by the ocean and have a water mount with you so you can get biotoxin from jellyfish because it is the best option considering how fast the torpor will drain.
Real easy to knock out. Use stone dinosaur gates to create a semi circle. With a fast mount agro the spino and run through the gates. Tranq spinos from the safety. Advanced players will have a door closed behind the spino so it can not run when near being downed
If you have a pteranadon, 4 stone Gates and a large bear trap with around 20-35 tranqs in a crossbow you can take it down. Imagine a square of Gates, except there's one missing and a L bear trap in the middle. You lure It from the side with the gate missing. when it gets stuck, cover up the last gate and you can fire away. You can use whatever you want for taming. You can also do this with the rex.
Boi I walked up to a spinosaurus thinking i could punch it enough to knock it out an this spino comes and claws my face in when to my base and killed all of my Dino’s I shot it like a million times didn’t affect it al of the sudden it stops moving I go up to it and see it’s dead rip all my Dino’s and spino
If your gonna try to tame a Spino, use a lot of narcotics and bio toxin. I also suggest to go onto a cliff if your gonna shoot it with tranq arrows. WARNING: Their percentage go up like 6 or seven percent for a low level.
