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.
If you sneak up on it (ghillie suit , cactus brooth ) and get up close it won't start fireing so just shoot it with darts entill it's knocked out also if your planning to do this on higher levels you might want more health so use mind wipe tonic if you think you need more health. p.s it hits you instead of shooting you when you get really close.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
