PixARK Explorers Guide to Taming

By Rebecca Smith, 9 months ago
Next week, PixARK will be arriving in Xbox Game Preview. To prepare players for its arrival, developer Snail Games has started a video series of Explorers Guides, teaching players the basics of their upcoming game. The first of these videos introduces players to taming.


There are two ways of taming a creature in the game: passive and knock out. Passive creatures won't harm players unless they are directly threatened, and these are fairly easy creatures to tame. All you need to do is feed them several times. More aggressive creatures will need to be tamed using a knock out strategy. Both sleepy arrows and certain melee weapons will allow players to knock out an aggressive animal rather than kill it. Once the creature is knocked out, you'll need to fill up its food inventory, but make sure it stays unconscious while you do this, otherwise you'll need to start all over again.

The control prompts in the video are based on PC, but the gist is the same for Xbox One. Check out the video below for more details.

You'll be able to tame your own creatures when PixARK is released in Xbox Game Preview on March 27th. There is not currently a date for the game's full release.

We've got the full list of PixARK achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
