One bola is usually not enough to tranq it in time if you are solo and they are very fast once they are free and spooked. Chase it with a pteranodon or other flyer to the volcano, then follow it until it gets stuck on rocks where you may dismount. Tranq while it is stuck and you can solo tame it even without bolas.
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.
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 !!
