perfect for early tame and can boost your ark game exponentially. after unlocking slingshot, find a low level (5-10) and shoot it from a far distance, then just walk backwards and continue shooting (you can turn and sprint but this takes much more time, or, if you're lucky you can find a big rock that it isn't able to get up on and shoot it from the top of that) it doesn't take too many rocks and only about 15 minutes of making narcotics. after getting one trike, use it to collect berries (if you're a high enough level) and you can make narcotics extremely fast making taming easier.
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.
Note: everyone thinks you need a trap, you do not. I did it, no trap needed.
1. Craft tranq arrows, a bow, and collect berries or take crops, narcoberries included
2. Find a trike and find a rock where it can’t get up
3. Shoot it with arrows until unconscious, about three
4. Put crops and/or berries and the narcoberries
5. Enjoy this addition to your pack of tames or as your first and/or only pet
Up if this was helpful, down if you want to try and find out my suggestion was helpful the hard way. I hope you guys hang in there. I have two houses, one is one a peninsula in which I was being stupid and idiotic and I led a therzino to this safe place so I’m in danger everytime I’m there.
Ah, the trike. Your trusty early-game berry gatherer and a surprisingly strong (and surprisingly slow!) mount. You've probably tamed one before, but if you haven't, you've come to the right place.
I would recommend using tranq arrows or darts, although you shouldn't really need to tame a trike by the time you unlock tranq darts. Get up somewhere high (But be careful as trikes can climb better than you'd think) or get it stuck between two trees. If you want you could use a trap, but it shouldn't be nessesary. As for taming food, my choice would be mejoberries. They're easier to obtain than crops and actually tame it quicker! You'll need 85 mejoberries for a level 150. As for narcotics, you'll need to bring some, no matter what level you're going after.
Saddling and Stats-
Good bulky tames with a high health stat. Stamina is average, and is the one I put the most points into. Saddle is simply made from hide, wood and fibre (I think).
I haven't written a section on breeding one of these guides before, and I don't know too much about trike breeding, so don't take my word as fact. One thing you'll need, berries. Trike eggs can be hatched under 3-4 standing torches and are herbivores (obviously). You should be able to give the hatchling a few stacks of berries and forget about it.
I hope this guide helped someone today. If you liked, please consider sharing it with friends!
