An effective way to knock out a Tapejara is to wait for it to land, equip a bola then run straight at it while swinging the bola. As soon as it does it's 'roar'' animation, throw to bola before it flies away. If you miss or throw too late, then if you can get it out of your render distance quickly then load it back in, it should have stopped flying away and be back in it's normal state, ready for you to try again.
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:)
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... >:( :(
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.
