ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
I've always tamed mine on the backside of south tropical. Just bola it, shoot it with trans and if you're lucky the tapejara will stick to the side of the cliff! Tamed 3 that way
More Tapejara Taming & KO Tips
Its very easy to tame this thing, the hard thing is finding one of these, but when you find it make sure there are no dangerous wild dinos around because they might kill you, to tame it, slowly approach with a bola and when it looks like it will fly away, BOLA IT so it doesnt fly away and just shoot it with tranq arrows or anything that makes it unconcious,
His saddle has 2 extra seats and the passengers can shoot while flying.
Up so more people see it (sorry if bad english)
I was looking for a Tapejara and I have been for the past five days and I came across one. Then all the sudden I look to my right and I see a Alpha Carno charging at me. R.I.P my poor Pterodactyl whom I had just tamed that day. Never got the Tapejara any tips for my terrible luck? 1 like= One prayer for me.
Its really easy to tame a tapejara but hard to find and when you find one wear a ghillie suit or if you dont have resources to craft one just make sure you stay crouched trying to approach it and that its not near any predators because if it gets scared it will fly away REALLY fast so bola it as soon as you can then shoot it in the eye with tranqs.
To tame a Tapejara is actually, pretty easy, first things first, you will need:
-A saddled flying creature
-At least 3 bolas, in case you miss bolas in him(if you are feeling lucky, you can make only one, but I don't recommend it at all)
-Some Rare Flowers
-Club, Bow or crossbow(with tranq arrows, or else you will kill it)
-A lot of Meat(like, 20-40, only to tame eat, you probably will want more as he will get hungry after tamed), or at least 4-7 Prime Meat
-Narcotics(optional, in case of the Tapejara taking too long to tame, good having some as a backup)
How to do it: when you spot the Tapejara, use the rare flowers and make it aggro you. After that, get to land, exit your mount(recommend to put it to Passive, or your Tapejara will get killed), and bola it. After that, shoot/hit it with tour weapon of choice until you knock it out. Give it the food of choice(recommend also protecting it, as it has a low health and can easily be killed by raptors), and wait until tamed. CONGRATULATIONS, Now you have a Tapejara !! Hope this guide helped
Note if ur mobile don't use rare flowers they won't aggro
Up for noobs to see
This is my best flying Dino other than the griffin. You should really get this Dino. To tame sneak up behind using gilly suit and bola it then tranj it if available use chain bola it will hold longer
Don’t try to chase it just waste time it’s to fast.
Tip: you can actually eat rare flowers near these guys (if you get your hands on one or a couple) and they will chase you, it will be easier than simply chasing them in the sky.
Why do they say sneak up just run up really fast with a bola wack it with one and shoot it in the head with trauqs it’s quite easy after I got the hang of it good luck and have fun.
If they are hiding, and you don't want it getting away, kill all creatures around it, then eat a rare flower. It will come right to you, and when it does, bola it. Hope this helps!
