ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
To knock out a triceratops is not as hard as most people think. You don't have to have tranq arrows, a simple slingshot will do too. And if you're afraid of it hitting you whilst trying to KO it, try to get it stuck. Eventually it will even run away from you, as it is not able to hit you anymore!
More Triceratops Taming & KO Tips
Things to remember about the Trike:
-Do not pick up it's egg (or any other dino's egg if the parent is near)
-Do not aim for the head, aim for the body
-Tranq Arrows seem to work better than slingshots (but if you want to use slingshots, be sure to bring tons of stone)
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.
Just lead the into a 4x4 trap and knock the out using tranq arrows
You can tame them with mejoberries if you want, juwt check on them in a while not frequently as they have low torpor drain rate
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.
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
Up for the noobs to know
In Soviet Russia trike tame u
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.
I think trikes give you more berries.up if you think to
Never aim for their head, they have better protection there you,ll be wasting your tranq arrows.
