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
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
From personal experience I believe if you play on a PvE server that the Tapejara is best suited for hauling items around considering it has low boosts when you put levels in Hp or Attack. Therefore you should put most of the points if not all into Weight and Speed. It very mobile as well, since it can move forwards, backwards, and side to side. It also has a three person saddle it can be very useful in PvP. It is very fragile so be careful when you have tribe mates using the gunner seats if they accidentally hit the Tapejara and you may kill the bird. Especially be cautious with rocket launchers they will do heavy amounts of damage to the Tapejara. Also note it can be hard for your tribe mates in the gunner seats to aim if you put to many points into movement speed. I suggest pausing for a second to let them shoot then move to strafe enemy weaponry.
Once tamed, the tapejara is a great mount for taming or fighting other creatures. Have yourself or a tribemate fly the tapejara while a passenger in the back seat shoots down at a creature with darts or arrows. The tapejara's unique ability to strafe midair and fly backwards enables the rider to also chase after fleeing creatures such as other tapejara's or other flying creatures. The passenger in the back can also easily attack flying bugs and vultures that may be chasing your bed down.
