There are multiple steps required to take & ride a beast in Far Cry Primal:
- Unlock the Beast Master’s skill tree.
- Unlock the Beast Master’s skill: “Tame Canines”.
- Get bait (just regular meat you get from skinning animals).
- Bait & tame the animal.
Unlocking the Beast Master’s skill “Tame Canines”
In order to unlock the Beast Master’s skill tree, you need to first recruit Tensay the Shaman and then improve his hut.
From there all you got to do is gain enough skill points to unlock the “Tame Canines” skill.
Taming The Beast
After unlocking the “Tame Canines” skill you can start taming beasts.
In order to tame the beast, you need to get close to the beast (preferably stealthy) and then throw it a bait (middle mouse click on PC); then the beast will go over to your bait and start feeding on it.
While the beast is feeding on your bait, you need to get close to it and hold the interaction button to tame it (F on PC | Square on PS).
Riding Your Beast
Riding your beast is pretty simple, just get close to it and press the interaction key (F on PC | Square on PS).
Just know that in order to unlock any rideable beasts you first got to unlock the “Tame Apex Predators” skill which is the third skill on this skill tree.
NOTE: Make sure the beast you’re looking for is actually rideable by checking if it has the “Rideable” trait on the beast menu.
