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*
These should be your first tame since there saddle is unlocked at level 27 in extinction also they can shoot faster then an automatic turret also I've just read this they can block turret bullets so I hope they can damage tek turrets with there needles or out gun all turrets.
Easy knockout get a managarmr and the managarmr can use its searing spit wich can oy freeze dinosaurs in first person view and freeze the velonosaur before he or she agros you then simply knock it out with shocking tranqs or normal tranqs.
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.
Traps are overkill for taking these. A friend and I have a strategy where one tanks hits on a gasbag (anything with high health will do) and the other just tranqs it from the side. A person with a metal shield can work as a distraction too, but not for long. This is an effective strategy as velonasours have low torpor and will be knocked before it does too much damage.
You don’t need prime meet or kibble you can just use normal meet it only take 10 min it’s just 6 min and 30 secs longer than prime and kibble and so much easier to get and the saddle is low level so it’s a good low level tame just the area is Hard if you’re not careful
I found the best way to KO a Velona is by find a destructible rock, which they cant break, and climb to top of it, then just start the process, when it goes into turret mode you can just take a step or two back and it won't hit you but you can still see it and hit it. Once it runs follow and keep on shooting. This has worked for me on my entire Velona Army of 16 Velonas, now time for Breeding. I already got a 267 and 261 female and Male to breed together. Cant wait for an imprinted one. That can solo red drops
Get a wyvern or quetzal and pick the velonasaur up and bring it into a taming pen. If both are not available and you dont have the power to kill nearby dinos, make a trap out of 4 wooden or stone gateframes and gates (add the gate doors to the gateframes otherwise it will escape)
A set of flak, crossbow and a pair of balls you can walk right up to one of these and it'll either run away from you or try to hit you with its needles, run underneath the tail to confuse it and you'll prolly knock it out without much trouble.
This thing is O.P. Use "C" for single target mode. When you are surrounded by many dinos, just trust me, hold right mouse button that will take care of everything. Best idea would be go with stamina and meele.
