Smalland Survive the Wilds is a new base-building, survival and open-world adventure game. This game has combined features of lots of other games. Sometimes you will see it like Valheim and sometimes it seems that game got inspiration from the Grounded itself.
There is one very unique and comprehensive feature in this game called taming and mounting the creatures which redesigns the things similar to ARK Survival. Anyways, currently Smalland Survive the Wilds is buzzing the internet with its unique gameplay, graphics, RPG elements etc but in this post we are going to talk about the taming system of the game. We will also guide you through the way to mount different creatures in the game.
Mount System in Smalland Survive the Wilds
Don’t get confused and let you clear your doubt, Smalland’s map is not small and narrow at all. it has a very big and vast map and is subject to getting more biomes in future. So, we can expect that map will expand more in the future with upcoming patches and updates. Still, it’s a bit hard to travel from one location to another when we don’t have any teleport and transportation systems available in the game. The mount system plays a vital role in moving one NPC from another with the help of the mount.
There is nothing like an available mount or predefined mount system like Horses, Griffen etc in the game. You have to learn the mechanism of the Mount System of the game. There are critters in the game and you can tame and mount them accordingly. but you can’t tame and mount everything you see in the game. At present, You can tame a few critters in the game namely the Grasshopper, Gecko, Wolf Spider, and Damselfly.
They have different abilities but you can use those abilities only after tamming them. There is a specific approach to tame these critters you need to hit them hard and make their hp below 50% and then you have to feed them to become their friends. After that, you will see an option to tame and mount.
There are different ways to approach, tame and mount the specific enemies. I’m going to provide complete information about the entire process below:-
