How to Tame Animals in Assassin’s Creed Origins
The first step when it comes to taming animals in Assassin’s Creed Origins is unlocking the “Animal Taming” ability within Bayek’s skill tree. To unlock the Animal Taming ability, you’ll need to complete the following steps:
- Open your menu
- Navigate to the Abilities tab
- Unlock Dawn & Dusk under the Seer section
- Unlock the Sleep Darts skill
- Continue unlocking skills along this tree until you’re able to unlock Animal Taming for three points
With the Animal Taming ability unlock, you’ll be able to tame animals in Assassin’s Creed Origins. However, each time you wish to tame an animal, you’ll need to complete a series of steps. For example, the Sleep Darts skill needs to be unlocked before Animal Taming, and it comes in handy during the actual process of taming animals.
To tame animals in Assassin’s Creed Origins you’ll need to have your Sleep Darts equipped to your D-Pad. When you come across an animal you wish to tame, you’ll need to put them to sleep by shooting them with your Sleep Darts. With the animal asleep, approach them and hit either Triangle or Y (depending on your controller) to tame it.
Once the animal has been tamed, it will join you and fight enemies for you. And that’s all there is to it! Simply have your Sleep Darts equipped, shoot them at the animal you wish to tame, then hit Triangle or Y to complete the taming process.
