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.
My dudes I recomend Gillette suit,bola then tranq it. if u have access to allow kibble THEN USE IT! They love allo kibble.if u don't have allo kibble just use prime meat and make sure u have a lot of narcotics at least 50 or 100
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.
Hard to do, but aggro with rare flower and pull into a covered pen. Close pen. Need a giant gate at least. Wood or stone works. Then bola and tranq at leisure within safety of your pen. No baddies to get him.
If your in ark mobile, and you have access to potent dust and dodo feathers, craft some dodo arrows and shoot the particular tapejara your looking for with the dodo arrow to activate agro on it and lure them. If your in normal ark (pc, ps4 or xbox) use rare flowers to lure it into a trap.
When you come up to a Tapejara be very slow and Quiet. When you close enough bola it quick before they fly away and they can fly pretty fast. After you can use a cross bow or a bow to knock it out. If it has low health I would not recommend to hit it in the head several times or it will die. Maybe one or two to the head but take like seven seconds before every shot. Usually depending on its level for example around level ten takes about 15-20 meat. Also bring at least 5 necrotics( depending one level) once again 1-10 level should take no more than around 8. Out some spikes around your Tapejara so no Dino’s kill it. The process it not that long once again depending on the level. Every lower level does not take as much. Then you have your very guild able Tapejara. They move left right forward and back and also can hand on to cliffs and trees. I hope this helps and up this tip for more people see how to easily tame a Tapejara! Hope it helped!
Look it is hard to knock them out because of the fact that if you get close to them they will run. So you are going have to hit a 360 bola trick shot with the bola and hit it then knock it out. One more thing whe you are shooting it with tranqs they have low health so wait 5 seconds to let the narc kick in. Have fun and good luck survivors!
They are scared easily if they see you they’ll fly away. Hide behind a rock then bola the shoot in the body with a tranq arrow. Don’t leave it unprotected it will die to almost anything while it is knocked out.
