Unless you chain bola this creature, it can not be trapped. It almost always goes into turret mode and shreds you. Doesn't take too many tranqs, though. Just chase, duck, and hide from its bullets. Kind of difficult tame, but not too bad. Higher level tamed Velanos are very powerful, though! Shreds through dinos!

You don’t need to trap this to tame, it’s a solo tame. If you run up to it, it will go into turret mode then you need to walk circles around it and keep hitting with tranq until it eventually tries to walk away *in turret mode so really slow walking*
Make a 2x2 cage with ramps and a door. Lure the velonasaur in with a flyer. If you stay close to him he won’t enter turret mode. Leveling melee raises his projectile hit points. Also level stamina to attack longer. A high level can shred everything I’ve come across. Can’t wait for an imprinted one for the speed bonus.
