How To Force Tame

To force tame you'll need to open the cheat console and enable cheats.

The way to do this will vary depending on what platform you're on.

  • PC - Tab
  • PS4 - L1 + R1 + Square + Triangle
  • Xbox One - LB + RB + X + Y

You should see a bar appear at the bottom of your screen. Now you can enter whichever cheats you want to use. To close the console, enter the same sequence of buttons used before. If you're playing singleplayer cheats should work as soon as you type them and press enter. But, if you're on a multiplayer server you need to enter 'EnableCheats [Password]'. Enter the admin password into the brackets.

Below are the cheats you can use to force tame.

  • cheat forcetame
    • Immediately tames the dinosaur under the player's crosshairs. Dinosaurs tamed with this command can be ridden even when no saddle is equipped (to remove this, cryopod and throw out the creature). Will crash game/server if done while mounted.
  • cheat ForceTameAOE <Radius>
    • Force tames every dino in specified radius, default's to 2000 if no number is given.
