If you are starting get trikes, kill the undesired ones first with spears or else it’ll be a nightmare. There’s dead spot on their flanks if you run out of arrows just punch them there. Trust me you can use that as a last resort for most beachside dinos (para, carbo, dilo, compy, iguanodon, etc).
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.
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!
