Far Cry Primal Animal & Beast Taming Guide – Where To Find All Animal Locations, Stats & Abilities

Far Cry Primal Beasts Taming Guide
One of the greatest new features in the Far Cry franchise sees the addition of taming beasts in Far Cry Primal. This Far Cry Primal Animal & Beast Taming Guide lists all of the animals you’re able to tame in the game, where you can find each of them and other information including their strength, speed, stealth and other added bonuses such as looting or gathering resources.

If you’re looking for help completing the most difficult hunts in the game and taming the rarest animals, check out our Master Hunt guide.

The general technique to taming each of the beasts in Far Cry Primal remains much of the same throughout the game. When you have a general location of the beast explore the nearby vicinity with your Owl and use it to try and spot the specific beast you’re after. They usually stand out. Failing that just walk around and throw down some bait and see if anything responds. If it doesn’t pick it up and try again. If you’re hunting for a rare one remember that they leave scent trails behind that are visible when using your hunter sense.

You need to make sure you’re sneaking throughout the process, from the time you throw the bait to the time you attempt to tame. If the beast spots you and you’re not crouching they will attack or escape. If you’re unlucky enough to have to kill one, they do respawn. The fastest way to make them respawn is to go back to Your Village and sleep a full cycle. So if it’s day, sleep until night and then until day again. If it’s night, sleep until day and then until night.

There is a certain random element involved. Below are screenshots of every tamed beast location in the game, to be used as a reference if you’ve been struggling to find a specific beast. I found the beasts in the exact location marked by the player icon on the map but obviously they aren’t static so check nearby if you don’t spot them straight away. The more powerful ones are a lot easier to find anyway so don’t stress too much, you’ll encounter them all naturally as you progress.

The below screenshots are not the only place you can find these beasts, I simply included information relating to ones I found more than once and at the earliest opportunity in the game.
