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 !! Hope this guide helped
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.
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... >:( :(
Since the new update, rare flowers make dinos aggro on to you, you can use this on a tapejara and it will follow you to a trap you've built. Just remember that each flower gives only 10 seconds of that debuff so if the bird is far away from your trap, you have to use it frequently while coming back. Also, if you need it to follow you after you've gotten off your dino, you need to eat another rare flower so that it can agro on to you once again.
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:)
I cannot find your tip to thank you, but advice to just kill then revive at platform was just what i needed after stalking and bolo'ing and trying unsuccessfully to trap or KO. Granted it took 26 amber for level 210, it was totally worth it, thanks to you!
1 full ghillie suit, they can be made from the polymer dropped by penguins
Tranq weapon of choice
20-50 raw meat (preferably with some prime meat too)
About 20 narcotics, just to be safe
I. The easiest way I found to tame them is to look at the spawn map in the Dododex to determine the best area to find one. Anywhere southeast of the green obelisk is a good are for the island map. Once you've found where you want to look, put on your ghillie suit and head over there. IMPORTANT! DO NOT RIDE A MOUNT, YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO GET CLOSE ENOUGH UNNOTICED
1. Walk around a bit until you find one.
2. Once you've found one, crouch to get closer. Once you start getting very close go prone (you are nearly invisible while prone in a ghillie suit).
3. Once you think you have a good shot throw a bola at it. Don't worry if you miss, it won't notice you unless you get up. If it gets away and doesn't notice you, repeat step 3 (Once it starts flying you still have a chance at hitting it before it gets too far)
4. Once it's stuck on the ground, knock it out. Try to aim for the head to conserve your ammo.
5. Put some meat in its inventory, if you start running out you can hunt in the area to get more. Check up on it every few minutes to give it some narcotics so it stays asleep.
You now have a tapejara, feel free to put a saddle on it and ride it back home. Up if helpful
