ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
What is a tapejara used for? tapejara battling strategies in ARK: Survival Evolved.
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.)
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
I love these majestic Dorito heads so much, I, the very rider of the great ‘Bruce Wayne’ (my fallen Carno) have at least five of them for two reasons: their odd characteristics and to mass transport obsidian quickly. Their outstanding speed/weight ratio makes them my personal favorite areal pack mules. And they are literal tree-huggers if you’re in the redwoods.
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.
Im submitting this after a raid but i used a tapejara for carrying loot but anyways in my server there is lots of plant x everywhere beachs,jungle,etc in the swamp where i live there are a ton so i have to get around on a flier or my bary named onyx but my tape is a good van for metal so I go to the mountain near the swamp on the island its the one with a lot of griffens but also tons of plant x and avoid the plant x by going backwards or sideways overall great for many uses 9/10
Those guys dont want to be tamed hard thing is searching for yall but not for me i saw 5 different tapejara in one day but the problem is they so hard to tame it tooks so long for tame it without balsam and i found 2 tapejara in a row lol | the good thing is this guy have 3 seat and u can switch seat when u are flying with this guy so u dont have to land dangerous areas for regenerating stamina
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.
