ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
When you are low lvl, maybe try standing behind it and stand back, then release a tranq arrow or dart. It should knock out fast. I have tamed two myself. My dad tried to tame one the other day..he failed so bad..XD And it was a lvl 135
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.
If you’re on scorched earth I found LOADS in the mountains near the red obelisk they’re really easy to tame with a long neck and tranquilliser darts but I couldn’t get mine to bola, have fun
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
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
Note if ur mobile don't use rare flowers they won't aggro
Up for noobs to see
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!
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)
When I looked these up people said they are very difficult to find but I find them all the time when I'm exploring and I'm not even trying to find them. (I play solo on the island btw)
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... >:( :(
