This Dino is my favorite on the island for various reasons. First, it can hold 2 passengers, a pilot, and carry another. Second, it is the most maneuverable flyer out there. It can fly sideways, backwards, and can land on vertical surfaces (cliffs, redwoods.) Third, it has a tek saddle, so you can have four dubs on that thing (tek saddle, 2 passengers, and one carried person.) ^ If u agree
With this dino and a friend you can tame any flying mount that will attack you back. Have 1 friend in the back seat and another flying and shoot the creature you want. When it starts attacking have the driver fly forwards while the friend on the back shoots. You can get tons of argentavis's and snow owls using this technique.
Interesting bird. It can hold three people: driver and two passengers. The two passengers face opposite directions (front and back) and can shoot ranged weapons. It can land on the side but of a cliff or even on ceilings. While perched on the side of a cliff, the Tapejara will recover stamina, but much slower than normal. It can also strafe, which can be useful for centering a shot for your passengers.
Speed: This is bird is real slow. Argys are faster.
Pickup: Similar pickup ability to the Pteranodon.
Weight: Very good weight. We use it in our metal runs until we get an Argy.
Combat: Nothing special. Maybe similar to a Pteranodon.
Stamina: Good. You can be up in the air a long time, but travel similar distances to a Pteranodon before landing due to speed.
This bird makes taming creatures easier since you can easily fire on the target with a passenger. You can avoid taming boxes for many tames.
I LOVE the tapujaras! And also I think they are better than pteradons.(probably gonna get ALOT od hate on what I just said) But its because 1.they can atatch on trees to get their Stamina! Meanwhile your SAFE! BUT the pteradons to get stamina you need to go on the ground where it's dangerous. 2. TAPUJARAS HAVE 2 SEATS AND FROM EACH ONE OF THEM YPU CAN SHOOT (perfect for giga taming,or wyvern egg stealing. BUT THE PTERADON HAS ONLY ONE SEAT AND YOU CANT SOOT FROM IT. 3. ALSO TAPUJARAS HAVE MORE STAMINA THAN PTERADONS AND STAMINA IS REALLY IMPORTANT FOR FLYERS. THE ONLY REASON PTERADONS CAN BE BETTER THAN TAPUJARAS IS THEIR MELEE DAMAGE,SPEED AND SPRINT. BUT TAPUJRARS HAVE BETTER HEALTH AND STAMINA. BUT STILL I THINK TAPUJARAS ARE BETTER THAN PTERADONS. ^ DO THAT IF TOU AGREE
A great taming mount with friends! Have one person drive and another shoot tranqs, makes tranqing flying creatures like argies and quetz a breeze, but you can also use this technique to tranq just about anything. Solo, you can hook onto walls such as cliff sides and try to fire from the saddle, although the angle tends to be difficult.
Otherwise, it makes a great "pick up" mount, use it to pick up friends that may have lost their flying mount or otherwise stranded themselves far from home.
However they are quite slow, consider putting a number of points in speed and a few in weight, especially if you want to keep up with fleeing quetz. With enough weight they can become an interesting alternative to an argy.
Once tamed you can get a buddy to fly on the it with you which makes it so much easier to knock out big dinosaurs like rexes and brontos. All you have to do is fly above it and let ur tribe mate shoot darts
My favorite flyer tied with the argentavis I got a really good one on extinction and I used it all the time they aren’t hard to tame they can be used to transport materials, travel, and even fight as they can have decent health and melee. So an all around great mount that in my opinion is underrated
