Surprisingly, the tapejara is a great alpha killer. Just find a alpha raptor, and hover above it. Strafe downwards, attack, go up, and repeat. It's also good for long distance flight, carrying fair amounts of resources, and scouting.
I had been searching for this guy for a whole week. Finally came across one. Bola, Tranq, unconscious. My last Bola finally worked and I put some spiked walls around this dude bc I was NOT about to loose him. I got bored whilst waited and killed a few raptors for more meat and tamed a pachy. Then flew on my pteranodon to look for a stego for prime meat. Saw one pretty close to my tapejara. Then I saw 3 allos….. went back to my tapejara ready to fight and they came at me. I shot them and killed all 3…but my tapejara didn’t make it. 1 up=1 prayer for my tapejara:(
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
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.
