If you didn’t know, the second attack of the tapejara (the one where it stands up on 2 feet and roars) is actually a very useful pvp attack, if anyone is trying to pick you with a pt just do that attack right before they pick you and you won’t get picked.
Also the easiest way to tame this thing if it’s in the sky is to lead to the the volcano, if you lead it close enough it will land on one of the cliffs and then you can bola it and tranq it, these animals have low torpor like the pt so it shouldn’t take you much darts
Must have tame for anyone who wants have a Spider-Man 🐦. This is not the easiest tame but once you have it you can basically land anywhere and i mean ANYWHERE!! if it runs out of stamina in the redwoods you can land on a tree and it will regain Stam but a bit slowly and if you are not in the redwoods you can land on the side of cliffs!!!!. Plus you can fly up down, left and right and it has a multi seat saddle. Let others now
Story Time (I don’t know if this is the right category but watch ever)
Tapejaras are hard to find, hard to tame and hard to protect while taming, I discovered that in the hard way.
During my entire time playing Ark(mobile) I only seen 3 Tapejaras , I tried taming all of them.
The first one escaped because I ran out of food and narcotics.
The second one I tamed, and then he got killed by a Spino seconds later.
Due to luck and previous experience I managed to tame the third one , I named him Jack, and he still alive and I hope it keep on going like that .
Sooo, I hope this was useful, or at least entertaining, so what are you waiting? Go tame one! They really nice if they survive the tame they can survive almost everything I guess
If u spook it and it starts flying up, u better shoot it and get another to spawn in faster because they WILL NOT land ever again ( they probably will land sometime but when I first started out I punched one of these to try and kill it and to this day I still see it in the sky)
Always spawn on the Island near Green Ob, and near to Red Ob. Use bola, and full gillie suit to approach. Make sure you are crouching when you approach one. I've had Taps on official and unofficial. Great multi purpose tame for tribes. Not so good for solo players unless you get the tek engram for the saddle
Me on a random hunt: *Runs past one of these and doesn’t even look at it more than a few seconds*
The Tapejara: *Literally gets scared just because a human is near even though it could see that I wasn’t gonna do anything and flies off*
Me: *facepalms* Goddamn scaredy-cats...
On the island map they are uncommon spawns in many places although the best place to find them is in the south east jungle and obelisk area. They can be used to tame solo tame a quetzal. Kill a few ducks to get some ghille (2-3 pieces will do) then shoot it in the head and afterwards just hit it with a few body shot and it’s will ko. Never go to close on your mount when you find one. Flying mount reccomended. if it is in the air follow it from far away and wait patiently for it to come down. If it only ascends then don’t bother and if it’s on the ground land a little far away then equip ghille and shoot. I hope this helped!
