Smalland Survive the Wilds How to Tame

Learn the complete process of How to Tame in Smalland Survive the Wilds.

Smalland: Survive the Wilds is the perfect game for those who enjoy being thrown into a dangerous wilderness with only a few sticks and their wits to fend off predators. And let’s not forget the riveting plot, where the sickly queen needs to get well, but of course, the lazy king can’t be bothered to lift a finger to help.

Who needs a king when we have a brave player who can risk his life to save her? I mean, who cares if the king is too busy “settling” things with other “King-ly work,” right? In Smalland, you get to be the real hero while the king gets to lounge around doing nothing.

However, there are some perks of being a fearless fellow. You can ride giant insects around like it’s a carnival! Taming these hostile creatures is quite easy with some “know-hoof.” Some insects are as friendly as a swarm of bees. Here, we will show you how to befriend the locals and ride them into the sunset. Remember to bring some insect repellent because you never know when they might bug out.

Tame Creatures in Smalland: Survive the Wilds

In Smalland, even the tiniest creatures can pose a deadly threat. However, you can turn them into allies with a simple method of taming. Moreover, you can only have one tamed creature at a time. Unlike Valheim, where you can have a whole farmyard following you around.

And do not forget the treats. Just remember to make sure it’s the right one, or else you’ll be wasting your time like a bug hitting a windshield. And don’t even bother trying to tame something that can’t be tamed, or you’ll just be barking up the wrong tree.

Smalland currently has a handful of creatures available to tame. However, there’s potential for more in the future. For now, you’ll have to settle for grasshoppers and ladybugs as your trusty sidekicks. But if you want to unlock the other options, you’ll have to put in some work and battle some enemies. It’s like a real-life Pokemon battle.

How to Tame

Start a fight with the creature you fancy, beat it up until it’s weak enough (less than 50%, but who’s counting?), and then hit that “F” key to start taming. It’s like a game of whack-a-mole but with bugs. We already mentioned about the treat. Just give the creature a simple treat after taming, and that will complete the process.

Each animal requires a different one, so make sure you bring your recipe book. It’s like cooking for your pets, but with more danger involved. Let’s see in more depth:

Taming Tips and Tricks

Taming the creatures in Smalland: Survive the Wilds can be as easy as whipping up a treat in your kitchen. Others require a little more work and strategy.

As we can already see that the Ladybug is not rideable, but they make up for it by expanding your storage capacity by a whopping 20 items. Meanwhile, the other tamed creatures can be your uber and offer different perks like increased jumping distance, climbing ability, and even attacking enemies.

Some treats can be crafted on a workbench or with the help of a cauldron, while others require a bit more effort. For instance, to get the recipe for the Wolf spider treat, you’ll need to defeat the Albino spider boss.

Remember, you can only have one tamed creature at a time in Smalland: Survive the Wilds, so choose wisely which perk you want to take advantage of. With a bit of strategy and some tasty treats, you are now ready to be a taming master in Smalland: Survive The Wild.
