ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
How do I tame a triceratops? Tips and strategies on taming and knocking out a triceratops.
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.
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).
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
Never slingshot or shoot tranq arrows at the trike’s head. They have extra protection there. aim for the body instead.
Step 1: get 10 or more tranquilizer arrows step 2: go on a tall rock so it can’t hurt you step 3: shoot it at the body WARNING DON’T DO IT AT THE HEAD OR YOUR JUST WASTING YOUR ARROW step 4 give it narcotics and berries BOOM you tamed a trike up = 1 noob turning into a pro
I think trikes give you more berries.up if you think to
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)
Easy kinda while it’s running at you aim for the foot
Your Pocket Triceratops Taming Guide
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!
I just killed a Rex with this guy he's a absolute war machine
Never aim for their head, they have better protection there you,ll be wasting your tranq arrows.
Get a bow with tranquilliser arrows around 30 for a 140 then hit it while running around in circles as it won’t hit you. If you used lots of arrows but isn’t torpor running, wait a bit as the tranq arrows are doing it’s thing and start to get knocked out. Hope this was useful. You can even do this with a slingshot
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
How to tame
1: bola your friend when he isn’t looking
2: hit the trike
3: stand behind the friend
3A: Watch him kill your friend
4: hit the trike with tranqs until it falls
Make a trap get tranqs shoot it lol it’s simple or even use trees to trap
Make sure you don't shoot it in the head, it has a reduced torpidity output so it costs a lot more arrows/stone to knock it out.
You can use a bowler but you just have to get on a right angle to throw it at it
They are easy first get slow level if you are start game. Preferably a lvl1 to a lvl 10. Then knock it out with a slingshot or tranqs. I run in circles and knock it out. After that let starve for 3-5 minutes then feed green kibble ,crops , or mejos. After that give either narco berries or narcotics. Then you got a trike.
