ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
It's best to keep them at range with a bow or crossbow, don't try and knock them out at all. Be wary of how quick they can sneak up on you at all times near their spawn locations. Make sure you keep stimberries on your hot bar so that way you can still access them if you get bit by a Titanoboa as they will usually knock you out. Upgrading your fortitude can help counteract this so be sure to put some levels into your fortitude early on. Titanoboa's are easy to outpace but be very wary as they can climb over most obstacles so don't bother thinking your safe by hiding behind a rock or a steep slope. Killing these guys is pretty simple with any ranged damaging weapon, just run a couple of steps, turn around and fire, repeat. Make sure you keep an eye on your stamina as it can be easy to forget about it during a battle, running out of it allows the Titanoboa to catch up to you pretty quickly so manage it correctly.

Snakes... why did it have to be snakes....
⬆️ If you have seen Indiana Jones
The dossier says:
"Found only in the dark caves of the island"
They are already wrong! It should say something more like:
"Found everywhere but the dark caves of the island, this creature will gladly ruin your day by jumping out and killing you as soon as you even think about going to the swamp. Nearly impossible to tame because it has to be tamed via passive which is very difficult to do. Worst of all you need to feed them fertilized eggs. Why can't it e a little easier?
If you're in an area that has a lot of these, put stimberries in your hotbar so if you get bit, spam those so you don't knock out, if you knockout, you're dead.
For new players: do not get hit by this at all or you will get knocked out. It will continue to bite you until you die. Please like this is my first post.
Use ranged weapons against titanoboas and watch your surroundings as the can team up and knock you out.
In real life, Titanoboa was fifty feet long and lived in the jungles of Colombia 60 million years ago. It was a massive, definitely rideable monster that could squeeze the living crap out of you.
Ark made it a smol poisoner instead of a giant constrictor. it’s called TITANoboa. It’s supposed to be big.
Other fact: The irl Titanoboa lived alongside and possibly preyed on the irl carbonemys
A hiss is all you'll hear
As an indicator I'm here
One bite from my snout
Then it's lights out
And your tamed friends might disappear.
Be sure to bring stim berries! And a gun. And a machete. And a flamethrower. Would you believe me if I said I actually like snakes? ~CL1
If you see one of these don't just run. Turn around walk backwards while using a pike to poke it in the eyes. Keep your distance well and you'll kill it without even taking a hit.
To the guy who said that the ark species are made up they really aren’t there almost all real Dino’s that have lived
If it is a boa, then it should kill with constriction, now venom, boas kill with constriction, vipers kill with venom.
