ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
Chase it to your base keep a distance so that the Tapejara will stop fleeing and become stagnant over your base. Using a quetzal with trapper preferably 3x3 (doorframes). Trap the Tapejara and begin to tranq till unconscious. Simply just fly the quetzal in any direction and now you can begin to tame within your compound. I tamed 10 already. 7 in one day.
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.
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
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.
Don’t try to chase it just waste time it’s to fast.
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!
Extremely difficult to tame. Best options are to bola it, and then use a longneck rifle with tranq darts. Otherwise trying to get it to fly into the side of a cliff and get stuff is the other option for a solo tame.
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)
