Hyde. How to Train Your Dinosaur in ARK: Survival Evolved

Dinosaurs in ARK: Survival Evolved can serve the player not only as food but also as very useful pets. You can ride them on horseback, they will help in battle, get resources for you and keep them at home, and also guard your home.

Almost all dinosaurs are tamed according to the same scheme. First, the animal must be stunned and then fed to fill the taming scale. The process varies depending on the level of the beast as well as its species.

How to stun a dinosaur?

The easiest way is with a melee weapon. Any weapon not only deals damage but also adds stun points to the enemy. In other words, if you beat the reptile hard enough, it will faint.
The quickest way to knock out the dinosaur will be tranquilizing arrows or darts. In addition, if you already have your own zoo, you can use other animals - Scorpio, Pachycelosaurus, or Toad.
Before the animal is knocked out, it will try to escape, but it will move a little awkwardly. This is a sure sign that there are a couple of shots left before he goes out.

How to fill the taming bar

When the dinosaur is unconscious, you need to open its inventory and leave food there for it. After that, you just need to wait until the creature eats everything. Every time the dinosaur lifts its head to eat, the progress bar fills up a bit.
You must have enough food to tame while the beast is feeding. If there is not enough food, then the process will reverse.
  • Herbivorous Dinosaurs eat Berries and Advanced Crops.
  • For predators, Raw Meat is good.
  • In addition, all animals eat Food.
Keeping the beast unconscious is essential throughout the entire taming process. To prevent him from waking up ahead of time, use Narcoberry or Narcotic. Unlike food, the animal itself will not eat them, so while in the creature's inventory, click on the item.
It is easy to understand that you have succeeded - the taming scale will fill up, and the game will ask you to give a name to the pet.

Alternative way

Several fossils can only be tamed in an alternative way. In addition, Diplodocus can be lassoed using both stunning and an alternative method.
To tame an animal, you need to put a treat for it in the far right slot on the hotkey panel.
  • Araneo eats Rotten Meat, Raw Fish, and Raw Meat.
  • Arthropleura - Rotten Meat, Raw Meat, Raw Fish, and Decoction of Enlightenment.
  • Basilosaurus - Raw Meat, Raw Prime Meat, and Raw Lamb.
  • Gigantopithecus - Titanoboa Egg Berries and Food.
  • Diplodocus - Berries, Advanced Crops, and Lystrosaurus Egg Food.
  • Ichthyosaurus - Raw Meat, Raw Premium Meat, and Dodo Egg Feed.
  • Lystrosaurus - Berries, Advanced Crops, and Rare Blossom.
  • Manta - Anglerfish Gel.
  • Monkey - Berries and Dodo Egg Food.
  • On - Raw Prime Meat, Raw Lamb, Roasted Lamb, Raw Meat, Roasted Meat, or Raw Prime Fish.
  • Scarab - Rotten meat or any animal feces.
If you want to domesticate Araneo, Arthropleura, Onik, Scarab, and Mantu, then apply the Insect Repellent on yourself.
To feed a creature, walk up or sneak up on it and press E (action key). During the taming process, do not touch the animal, otherwise, it will either attack you or run away (this does not apply to Ichthyosaurs, Lystrosaurs, and Basiliosaurs).
After you have treated the animal, wait until it gets hungry, and then offer it food again. The average interval is 5-10 seconds. The domestication process can take some time (it depends on the level of the creature and the food).
Congratulations, you now know the basics of taming creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved. Remember that this guide only covers the basics of domestication. Each representative of the game fauna needs its own approach - someone can be tamed without much preparation, and it is better to lure someone into a trap. Don't be afraid to experiment!
