This is what’s you’ll need to tame it:narco berries narcotics tranq arrows and some wood structures. Step one: make a taming trap. Make it big Enough so the trike can’t get out make a ramp into the trap and a small door for a survivor to fit in. Step two: Hit the trike run into the trap and go through the small door. Step three get on top of the ramp and start shooting it with Tranq arrows. Also DON’T SHOOT AT THE HEAD THEY HAVE EXTRA PROTECTION THERE.step four:once it’s knocked out put your narco berries and narcotics in the trike and wait for it to be tamed. If this helped please hit the arrow pointing towards the sky.
First, for low levels, I suggest finding one that is stuck in between two trees which is surprisingly common. I used a crossbow, but you could just use a bow. Craft tranq arrows. Shoot at the belly, and try to do it quickly before it can get free. I suggest 4-6 tranq arrows, maybe more for a higher level. I brought a few narcotics just in case, but I didn’t use any so you don’t necessarily have to. Bring about 20-40 berries, probably more, and you’ll most likely have extra. Put it in the triceratops’s inventory and wait (in my experience it went up by 2%, so make sure you’re ready for a wait). If you leave it’s side the taming will still go up. After it is tamed, name it!
Extra: bolas will NOT work, if you use them they will start to attack.
Uses: they can be extremely strong (I have seen a group of 2-3 trikes kill a sarco, which is a much more high-level tame). Once a saddle is crafted, they are not very fast but they do collect thatch easily from trees as well as short amounts of wood. They get much more berries from a single bush than you can. They do not jump when you’re riding.
Thanks for reading! Sorry it was so long. Please up for the noobs to see! And of course, have a nice day.
So I’m totally new on this game. No idea what to do and how to survive, also died a lot but taming a trike is one of my biggest goal since it’s my favorite dinosaur and of course it’s like a freaking tank. So I watched on YouTube and read some here too and most of the time it suggests to make alot of effort so I did my own way. This is how I did:
Narcotics (MINIMUM OF 10)
Amarberry (ATLEAST A 100 TO BE SURE)
Bow and Arrow (Only shoot twice)
So first of I’ll find myself a Trike. Not sure if this is gonna work on much more higher and stronger level trikes but I tamed a level 10. After I have my eyes on my target I set myself on a much more higher ground like a rock so a trike can’t reach me. If all set shoot the trike twice until its life is depleted (dont use anymore since they might die) after that switch to your slingshot and just throw some rocks on it until it has little more life (keep this in mind that you need to beat it carefully). Trike’s are stubborn they will rather die than to be tamed so they might run even though they are close to death so let them run and regenerate some health then just hit them with a club until it will fall unconscious. Put all the amarberry on its inventory and watch out for the unconscious bar so use narcostics to fill it in. This way you can just watch it be tamed. In my experience it took overnight to be tamed since each amarberry gives 2-4% so be ready get your meat and campfire to set on besides your newly tank:)
