ARK Genesis Tek Triceratops Location And Taming Guide

If you want a Triceratops that looks like a dinobot from Transformers, the Tek variant is the way to go and this guide will let you tame it in ARK Genesis

Tek Triceratops is a dinosaur that was recently added to the ARK Genesis DLC. It is simply called Trike. It is not an aggressive dino and will only retaliate when attacked. Triceratop eats an herbivorous diet.

Triceratops has a unique bucking attack that will push the enemy from the cliff top or any high place. This attack is deadly due to Triceratops big horns on his head. Finding them is not difficult and you can easily find them in the Ark Genesis.

Once tamed, Triceratops can be used for many purposes such as Transport, Travelling, Battle Mount, Guardian, Protector, and Thatch Gatherer. We have therefore made a complete guide that will teach you How to Find and Tame Tek Triceratops in ARK Genesis.

How to tame a Tek Triceratops

You can easily tame Tek Triceratops by knocking him out and feeding him his favorite food until the taming bar is full. The list of the favorite food of Tek Triceratops are given below:

  • Simple Kibble
  • Fresh Barley
  • Fresh Wheat
  • Soybean
  • Dried Wheat
  • Mejoberry
  • Berries

Tek Trike will knock enemies with its bucking attack and if someone with less weight gets this bucking they will be heavily knocked back.

It is a heavy attack but can be dodged easily, keep in mind that they are herding animals and will come to the help of others when attacked.

They are slow animals and you can kite one very easily. They are all over the place in the Lunar biome so quite easy to find.

When you have locked down the triceratops that you want to tame, aim at it and shoot. You can use Tranquilizer Arrows as your weapon.

A few of your shots will knock him down but make sure to keep a healthy distance as they can attack you, and if they do make sure to dodge that attack as they are quite powerful attacks.

Due to their head armor, headshots will give less damage so try to engage more body shots, and when they are knocked down use kibble and other taming food to tame them and they will be yours in no time.

Taming one will get you a heavy increase in raiding bonus as they have 30 bonus levels which are just insane for an already OP for ratings in general.

They will get you 20% higher stats and 20% higher raidings also you can have more bullets as well. They can also block much more damage due to that thing on their heads like head armor.
