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 Karkinos taming details, get the taming calculator app.
To knock out a Karkinos, aim for its abdomen. Hitting its limbs will only inflict damage and not torpor.
I’d say I’m having pretty bad day. So, I just bought Abberation and I was so excited, so I went over to the water. I don’t know much about Abberation, so I thought the Karkinos was just a kind little crab. Oh boy was I wrong.. I went closer to the water, as I was thirsty. But the Karkinos comes running up to me, picks me up and shreds me to pieces. Let’s just say I took a little break from Abberation 1 minute after I bought it.
Pretty easy to tame. Trap it in a circular form of stone Dino gates, place catapult low if catapult is high the crab will die. Then shoot it with a catapult. Cannons insta kill the crab, do not use cannons up/vo/te so people can see
Guy best way to do it is with three people. 2 online 1 offline. One guy on the crab and 1 on a anky. The guy on the crab grapples the offline guy. Mine with the anky until the crab is heavy, then put all the metal in the offline guy. Rinse repeat until you cap out in metal on the offline guy. Head back to base and empty everything in the forges. Do this cycle for infinite metal on abberation. ( and if you want it to be faster. Have two anks instead of one. An a weight crab) best metal farming
The Karkinos is a massive crab-like creature in Ark: Aberration that can grab and smash creatures and players. It can also throw them at great lengths. Using its strong legs, the Karkinos can leap to impressive heights.
