ARK's base taming speed on PC, PS4, and Xbox is now doubled, meaning 1× is as fast as what 2× was previously. Dododex has been updated to reflect this. Use the "presets" dropdown for common multipliers.
For full Achatina taming details, get the taming calculator app.
🍰 WARNING: The Achatina has a taming bug where it will momentarily act as though there is no food in its inventory after it eats each Cake, causing taming progress to drop slightly every time. Dododex's taming values have been adjusted to attempt to factor in this bug, however, the bug's impact is difficult to simulate perfectly. Dododex's values should not be off by more than one or two, but please bring a few extra cakes just in case. To help me improve these calculations, please use the 'Report Data Error' button if your in-game numbers are more than one off.
The Achatina is a massive snail, mostly used for its production of Cementing Paste, or as a pet. This creature produces its paste passively — and quite frequently — so many survivors keep them around their bases. However, its usefulness pretty much ends there, as it cannot attack and moves quite slow. The Achatina must be tamed violently.
