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!
I use my apprentice sword, but I think a bow would work, but if you kill the ducks,(hesporonis) they are a good farm for organic polimer, witch you need for gilie suit and sneak up on tapejar’s to bola them, because if you don’t they fly and they fly fast, and just a tip, I can’t remember what you need for gilie, but for any snow armor or anything with pelt, use hair with sissors
Taming a tape jar is going to be difficult because they easily get spooked. So I would carry some rare flowers and some bolas. And if you dont have rare flowers just have a ghillie suit and slowly crouch to it and quickly bola it and tranq it or hit it with a wooden club. And if dont have a ghillie just quickly run up to it and bola it. And have the amount of raw or any other meat the dododex says.
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.
The easiest way to tame this would be to either wher ghillie armor and sneak up close to it and bola it, or to sneak up from behind, but not as close. The main key is to have good bola skills when doing the second one.
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.
Wear ghillie suit before approaching. Crouch/crawl up to then when it lands and use tranquilizer darts instead of arrows. Arrows have a very high kill chance. Once it goes down circle the tame with spike walls as tapejara are very fragile!
Taps are easy to tame but the pain in doing this is if u get to close they will get scared and they ARE VERY FAST.And once u scared one it will take FOREVER for them to land so the only choice u have is charge at it with a bola.DONT.MISS.But besides being a scaredy bird.They are nice tames bola and tranc.Easy.They also latch on to trees and rocks.Aleo in passenger mode (on the tapes saddle) u can use weapons on it.
If you are going to try tame one get a gille suit on sneak up behind it and bola it if you don’t have a longneck you can use whatever weapon you want and if you want a longer lasting bola use the chain one!
When trying to tame a lower level, USE TRANQ DARTS. I spent an hour looking for one and when I hit it in the head with an arrow, IT DIED. USE 1 DART TO THE HEAD. The frill on it doesn’t count as a hit, so aim for it’s mouth.
Probably the best flyer on The Ark, while I still think the Wyvern might be better on Scorched earth. Still, I love that you can hang upside down and on sheer cliffs. My absolute favorite flyer. ðŸ˜Š good luck out there!
3.Drag Tranquilizer Arrows to a bow-and-arrow in your inventory.
4.Throw bola on Tapejara. If you scare the Tapejara by accident, throw a bola upwards at its torso as it tries to flee. It will fall back to the ground and become submissive to the taming process.
5.Knock it out with the tranquilizer arrows using your bow, and then offer it any type of meat you have available. Tapejaras, like most other carnivores, prefer prime meat regardless of whether it came from a fish or regular animal.
6.Keep watch over the Tapejara while he/she is asleep, and defend it from predators if needed. Have other tamed creatures help with this if you are too weak to fend off the threat alone, or a tribemate if taming the Tapejara on a multiplayer server.
7.If torpor becomes too low, feed the Tapejara sedatives such as narcoberries or biotoxin to keep it asleep. Narcoberries may need to be force-fed.
