ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
Trikes are the most useful creatures at lower levels/starting out. Easy and simple tames. The saddle isn't to hard to create. The many resources you can get ESPECIALLY berries can help you out in the long run.

People will tell you to build traps. Waste of resources. Just put a couple of points into movement speed and the trike won’t stand a chance.
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.
Best way to knock out a trike is to build a wooden house with walls all around and stand on top of it and make sure you have at least 20 tranq arrows then start shooting it until it goes unconscious then feed it mejo berry’s because they are the most affective out of all the berry’s if it’s about to wake up force feed it some narcoberrys or narcotic.
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.
In Soviet Russia trike tame u
People will tell you to build a trap but it’s a waste of stone. Just put some points into movement speed and you’ll be able to outrun and outmaneuver. Don’t take many tranq arrows, and a couple of these bad boys following you around will keep you alive and well l early game. Also for naming ideas,I just name all of mine after Jeagers from Pacific Rim.
It's not as hard as I thought to Knock it out I did it with a wooden club (definitely dint die like 4 times)it was only a level 4 but it's cool (boost this so low level beginners can see).
Never slingshot or shoot tranq arrows at the trike’s head. They have extra protection there. aim for the body instead.
What ever you do don't try to bola them bolas don't work on them I tried to do it and instead of trapping him it started chasing me
I think trikes give you more berries.up if you think to
