It's very easy an hard to tame the tapejara. If you can angle bolas, great then you shouldn't need the ghille suit. If you manage to bola it quickly run up to it and knock it out with a upgraded club or high melee damage. You wont have to waste time getting tranquilizer darts or arrows. If you manage to knock it out then you should guard an check it ASAP.
If you really want one of these I highly recommended going to the floating islands in crystal isles map. I made a base over here and these things spawn like crazy. There’s also aberrant spinos over here too! I hope this helps those desperately trying to find one of these like I was!
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.
These things can be really hard to tame because they fly away fast so I recommend getting Ghille then bola it. After just knock it out and WATCH IT the way whole time because they have low health so a creature will kill it if you don’t. After it’s tamed enjoy a tapejara up if this helped:)
How to tame a tapejara:
1. If female pick up egg /male eat rare flower
2. Bola it
3. Shoot with sleep arrows or hit with fists
4. Feed it meat, prime meat, fish meat or prime fish meat.
(Tamed mine with meat and prime meat)
5. Enjoy your weird pterodactyl (tapejara lol)
ARRRRRRRGH I just had THE WORST taming experience! Pro tip: DON'T try taming a high level one by dangling from an argy by a grappling hook... You'll end up dying TWICE and losing your argy, guns, and 80 narcotics... >:( :(
