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 Dunkleosteus taming details, get the taming calculator app.
Dunkleosteus (meaning “Dunkle’s Bone”) in real life had the fastest bite of ANY animal in history, able open AND close its mouth in 1/50 OF A SECOND!! This causes water to be pulled in so quickly, it’s mouth then acted as a split-second vacuum, instantly pulling its prey into its mouth.
Oh, and it ate sharks during its time (late Devonian Period) since sharks weren’t as apex or as developed (looking more like eels, ie. the Cladasolache).
Very easy to tame if you know what your doing. First tame an Ichthyosaur. Then grab a crossbow and some tranq arrows and find one and knock it out. It is not be able to attack if you are on the Ichthy. As you are taming it, be sure to remain on the Ichthy unless feeding narcs, so other creature don’t hurt you.
Probably the most underrated Dino in the game! They can actually harvest a massive amount of metal, crystal, stone, flint, and obsidian. In Ragnorok there is a ravine by the volcano in the highlands underwater, One run in this ravine will give u 10,000 metal ingots and well over 10,000 obsidian from the same dark gray rock.
I tamed one of these before to realize how slow it is. But is well worth it on mobile as I always need a massive amount of flint and stone. Also take a HIGH LEVEL, doesn’t matter just bring 5 or 6 stacks of bio toxin.
Bring more tranq arrows then you think! Mine took 100 at close range, on the body, at LEVEL 3.
I took cooked prime meat (stays better longer) and got mine in only four feedings. On an icthy they don’t chase (mobile player here) happy taming- Survivor Belle
