Dilophosaurus Taming Process

In order to tame Dilos, gamers will not need upgraded weapons and gear. To take down dinosaurs, players can use primitive crossbows and bolts. Even with a club, you can tame those below level 40 if you do not have the crossbow.

Any Dilophosaurus over level 100 can break free from bola and run away. Aim at their head and you’re guaranteed to knock them out before time runs out. You should also have a few bola in case there is an accident. It is not necessary to use a spyglass to identify the right Dilo, but it will make the process easier.

  • Crossbow + Tranq arrows : Easily tame any level
  • Club : Works for lower level

Raw meat can be used to tame them. Raw meat can be harvested from almost every dinosaur roaming the map. It is not necessary to use prime meat, but it will be more effective if you do.

As soon as the meat has been added to your inventory, it is a waiting game but keep an eye on the torpidity level, if enough time has passed, the dilo might wake up. In the event that the metre is getting low, feed 10-20 narcotics.

What Do Dilophosaurus Eat in ARK?

It can be tamed with a variety of foods. Here are the foods that grant the best and fastest taming (from best to worst):

  • Basic Kibble
  • Raw Mutton : Mutton is given from Ovis
  • Prime Meat : Rarer dinosaurs like stego and brontosaurus give prime meat
  • Raw Meat: While not recommended for higher level dilos it work for ones under 40

Dinosaurs can be tamed faster if the food is higher on the list. There is always an advantage to giving dinos kibbles, but only if you give them the one they like, other kinds will have no effect at all.

But to tame the early level dilos, just regular raw meat will do just fine. As an alternative, if you are looking for high-level, please consider them. You save a lot of time and resources this way.

Uses for a Tamed Dilophosaurus

For a better understanding of what Dilophosaurus is capable of, let’s take a look at some of the great things they can do.

Acid Venom:. Dilophosaurus use their venom to blind and slow their enemies while fighting. The Dilophosaurus is quite smart when using this ability, as it spits in the direction of its targets instead of where they are located, giving it a better chance of hitting them.

Turret Mode: Because of their ranged attack, they can also be set up as turrets. They may not make a great deal of direct damage with their projectile attacks, but their lingering effect can confuse and frustrate their enemies, leaving them vulnerable to their allies’ attacks. Using them near narrow choke points within bases, such as inside halls and doorways, where intruders won’t have enough room to dodge, makes them particularly effective.

Kibble Egg Farm: Eggs from Dilophosaurus are available easily for lower levels of kibble.

Defenders: Dilos make excellent defenders when combined with fast mounts such as Raptors when in turret mode and aggressive.

How to Hatch Dilophosaurus Eggs in ARK

Obtain the egg

You will need to breed one female and one male to get a fertilized egg. To breed, two creatures of the same species must be of the opposite sex. To begin mating, enable the breeding setting.

There is a cooldown on mating, so make sure the creature hasn’t mated recently. Breeding intervals for Brontosaurus range from 18 to 48 hours.

To incubate an egg, you will need to keep it in an area with a steady temperature.

  • Air Conditioners x 5
  • Egg Incubator

Eggs are incubated at different temperatures and times. Therefore, air conditioners and egg incubators are the best options. For your convenience, they will regulate the temperature.

In order for the egg to hatch, the ambient temperature should be between 28°C and 32°C. Dilophosaurus babies hatch after about an hour according to official settings. Your attention is then required for about 2 hours, during which meat is continuously added to the inventory.

When it attains juvenile status, it can feed from troughs independently. It takes about 21 hours for the whole process to mature.
